Knitting for Hope

It is a new day we can all participate in, even knitters.

Thanks Birdie!

Berly's upcoming show in Vegas


February, Friday 13, 2009, from 5 - 8 p.m., Berly Laycox's studio gallery The Looking Glass will be hosting its Grand Opening. The Looking Glass is located at 410 Columbia Ave, Las Vegas, at the corner of 4th and Columbia.

The main exhibit will be "Creepy Birds" - photography, sculpture, mixed media, collage and drawings inspired by birds. Berly’s work is known for its gorgeous patterns, its meditation on details others often don’t see, for its themes of rhythm and decay.

Berly recently moved to Las Vegas after graduating from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. Her photographs of summer in Japan were recently featured in the deMare Fine Art Gallery’s Holiday Show.

The next issue of GALLINAS Magazine, issued February 11, will feature a profile of Berly Laycox by her mom - and huge fan - Birdie Jaworski.

Other pieces on display will include Berly's book art and photographs of Las Vegas.

Local author Birdie Jaworski will read several original stories based on Creepy Birds She Has Known.

Daniel Jencka will perform harpsichord music.

Refreshments will be served to all avian and human attendees.

All guests will be given the opportunity to meet the stars of the show - African Grey Parrot, Ramses, and Sun Conure, Sunny Bun Bun - and feed them piƱon.

For more information, please email Berly at

Birdie's Mittens

Look at this! My beautiful friend Birdie is wearing the beautiful Anemoi mittens I just finished for her. Beauty wearing beauty. So satisfying.

Birdie is the awesome Diva of Vegas. She sings chicken songs, plays the Indian flute, the banjo and guitar, and is a writer extraordinaire. Check out her links to her blog and her fabulous magazine Gallinas.
