“Pussy cat, pussy cat, where have you been? I’ve been to Mount Vernon to see the Queen.” The Pocketful of Posies Traveling Exhibit will be on display from Feb. 23 – May 5, 2013 at the Cedarhurst Center for the Arts in Mount Vernon, Illinois. The collection of 50 original embroidered illustrations from the book are divided into two groups of 25. One group is currently being shown until Feb. 22, 2013 at the Foothills Arts Council, Elkin, North Carolina.

We took the six boxes to the UPS Store in the truck and they are right now traveling west, half way across the country to Illinois. I hope that some of you have a chance to see the show in either North Carolina or Illinois. Next stop: Fresno, California!

  1. Salley,

    Please visit southern California, would love to see your work up close and to have the opportunity to meet you. I adore all your work, it is amazing and delightful. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Oh, such beautiful craftsman(person)ship! You have not only the vision, but the skill and magic to execute your work to perfection. It is a rare and beautiful union – something most people only have the pleasure of seeing not of creating.

    So happy I can see your work.


  3. CONGRATS on Illinois today..The world tomorrow?
    I hope one day it comes to Southern California..I am always amazed by the amount of detail that goes into each piece you make and would love to see it up close and in person..
    GOD Bless,

  4. I am going to Cedarhurst! I notified my hubby as soon as I heard it was coming. I told him he could either go with or I’d go without but am going! Its a 3 to 4 hour trip one way so I will make a day of it and only really bad weather will change my plans. So excited!

  5. Salley, How wonderful. I have the book and took it to the nursing home today. My auntie is in palliative care. I sit with her everyday doing my stitching. Today, I read the nursery rhymes to her. We never made it to the end of the book. Maybe more tomorrow – It’s a beautiful book and I’m glad that more people will get to see the wonderful work that you do. thanks again for the opportunity to share my fabric art enjoyment with my auntie. have a good one

  6. Oh My Gosh Salley…..I just read your post! I LOVE your art! I have your children’s books that I used in my classroom of 4 and 5 year olds, who also loved looking at the pages! I am a dollmaker and have had your instuction book since it was first published! I must admit that I have never made one of your beautiful little creations, but I do love just looking at them! My husband and I just moved back to CA from beautiful Lexington, KY, where we were for almost 12 years. I collected some of the most amazing acorn caps while I was there…..some of them being almost 2″ across! Like I said, I am back in CA and guess where…..FRESNO! I can hardly wait until your show is here!!
    Hugs to you from me,

  7. Oh My Goodness Salley, my Aussie friend Susie McMahon, just shared one of your posts on FB! I LOVE your work and have your children’s books which I had in my classroom of 4 and 5 year olds, who equally LOVED your beautifully done pages!! I am a dollmaker and have your instruction book, but have never made one of your “wee ones”……I just love looking at all of them and the detail is absolutely incredible!! My husband and I left SoCA in 2000 and moved to beautiful Lexington, KY, where I collected some of the most amazing acorn caps…..some being almost 2” across, the biggest I have ever seen!! We moved back to CA in 2011 to be nearer to our 2 little wonderful grandboy!! Guess where we now live……Fresno, CA………..so to make a very long story even longer…..I am so excited to be able to see your traveling exhibit at CSUF that begins March 18! I belong to the Fresno Fiber Arts Guild and I know this is an exhibit that the members will not want to miss!!
    Hugs to you Salley,
