Salley sneak peak

There is a dearth of finished projects around here, although I have made a great leap forward with my Kitty pattern. I spent yesterday working on the computer with a friend helping me out.  Another few days of that and I might have something to show for it!

Salley sent me some photos from her upcoming book and I asked her if I could post them. Here are the details- It is called POCKETFUL OF POSIES: A Treasury of Nursery Rhymes. Publisher, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Available, Sept. 2010.


I love the beautiful leaf designs- they are often in my head when I work on a tiny world.


I LOVE this one! The baby, the tree, the walnut shell! Swoon!



Here is the cover- although Salley tells me that the actual cover photo will be much better.


And, here is the drawing for the cover. So interesting to see the idea and how it comes together.


Thanks for the preview Salley! Here are some other photos of her work.

  9. For me, Salley’s work is REAL art. Incredible, every stitch every move- exquisite. I have every book of hers and want every child yo get “infused” with her art by being exposed through her books. I can’t hardly wait for her new one to be published. Thank you Sally for gifting us with your work.
