So, what are you up to this weekend?
Among the many things on my list -- including a project that's hopefully worthy enough to end up here and going out for a very belated holiday celebration with a gaggle of girlfriends I haven't seen in months -- I'm heading to the book launch of friend, mom and artist Abigail Patner Glassenberg. I met Abby just after she landed her book deal, so it's pretty exciting to celebrate her success now that she's published!
If you missed my previous piece on Abby, you can read all about her here. A teacher-turned-artist, Abby found her bliss at the sewing machine creating soft sculpture animals. Her new book, The Artful Bird, celebrates her amazing flying creatures and helps us non-artists learn how to make our very own. If you're in the Boston area and want to see her amazing sculptures up close, visit Essentia in Wellesley from 3-5 p.m. on Saturday. Hope to see you there!
