I love all kinds of fiber arts, crochet, spinning, and of course I can’t forget felting! I specficially like needle felting because it is easier to do in the confines of my condo in Morris County, New Jersey.
I also have a passion for getting the word out about breast cancer. I have met some of my best friends through my volunteering with Casting for Recovery, a unique breast cancer support organization.
Well, when I heard about The Nipple Project in California, I jumped at the opportunity to participate! The Nipple Project will be part of the group exhibition, “Enclosed, Encased & Enrobed.” This collaborative project will be shown at the Orange County Center for Contemporary Art in The Artist Village in Santa Ana, California June 5 – 28, 2008.
I used some lovely flesh colored fiber I am using for another needle felted breast cancer project, which was supplied to me by Michelle at Sunshine Day Dream Gardens. I knew it was right for the project because it just came together so easily! I am very happy with the way it looks and I will be mailing it out tomorrow. I have made it in honor of all my friends at Casting For Recovery, from whom I have learned so much. I love you all!
If you would like to participate, chck out The Nipple Project at: http://www.thenippleproject.com/. I know you won’t be sorry for participating in this important project!
