My goodness. What isn't in-progress right now!?
#1. My yard. #2. The
dandelion plot berries & veggies garden. #3. We are trying to transfer everything over to my new lap top and what a mess that is! I had to get a new one because I had pretty much destroyed the 'enter' key, as well as the eyes for the sideways happy face on my old one. lol I have it back! : ) (see?) So I can smile again... but I am missing some important emails. Oh dear. #4. As in yesterday's post, my presentation & framing is also a work in progress. #5. Some commissions are on the back burner as the next art show approaches. (***Thank you ladies for your patience!!). #6. In about ten days I'll be at the Spring Art Show & Sale which is up in the header of my blog if you want more info. I am a few hours away from completing another canola field!! In the mean time, I started this on Tuesday afternoon.
|in progress - wild crocuses to be added by hand|
I'm not sure if starting another piece right now was wise, but I think I can manage this. Besides, it was 'calling' me. I had to answer! : ) It's all ready for hand stitching. I'll be putting wild crocuses into the foreground, inspired by the photos I took at Patti's farm. There was one photo in particular that drew me. It was that blue, blue water down the hill. I think I'll be putting smaller crocus clumps into it instead of one big close-up as the original photos portray. You can see them here.
Also in progress: #7. I am teaching on Sunday, so I am getting ready for that too. I'm excited about this. I'm heading out to the town of Watrous to do my first Beginner Threadwork Class for a group of 5 women. I think 2 are coming from Regina. Annette from In Stitches and Seams is hosting it at her place. We 'know' each other through The Needle & Thread Network. I'll be bringing along some yummy Wonderfil Threads too! Speaking of Annette, she happened to be the one to answer my call for the "Tag! You're it" postcard exchange. I mailed her one of my Tag cards, and WOOHOO!! Look what I got today from her!
|only the BIGGEST art-to-mail that I've ever got!|
It's ONE HUGE TAG! I had to burst out laughing. Look at what I made for the swap...
|off to Ireland it went... 'Tag! You're It' postcard.|
Only the tiniest tag ever! lol Annette, I love your card! Thank you so much! I'm so glad you swapped with me. Don't mind me if I show that one off to my postcard classes! It's a keeper.
