Work in Progress...

I feel kind of weird. I just mailed away a Prairie Rug #3 to it's new owner in Vancouver (the far west of Canada), and my 'A Prairie Dress' is gone on it's way to Halifax (the eastern side of Canada) for the National Juried Show.  I am still in a blurr over that one!  How very strange to be spread coast to coast like that!  sigh.  Please be gentle Canada Post!  : )


I have been stitching too!  I have two smaller 'Bloom' redo's, and two smaller 'Flax at Jackfish' pieces.  I am currently working on the 'Denmark/Australia' commission... but I'll reveal that when it's done.

'Bloom' in progress once again.   Love it every time I stitch it!

For the rest of the week I have a hand quilting class, and YOU have more contests to enter.  Fun Fun!  I'm really glad I took a chance and asked for prizes.  I found some terrific sponsors!  So snoop around on my blog this week.  Winners will be announced on Saturday May 5th.

from Vancouver to Halifax, not so far, unless of course you walk it! Always exciting and amazing to think of one's work being recognized so far from home!

I can't wait to see the Prairie dress in person in Halifax!

Congrats on sending your work off! That's exciting (and scary - I agree with you!).

The 'new owner' is anxiously awaiting her package. It's a coast to coast week for you!

The photographs of your work are so beautiful! They would make gorgeous prints to make into cards as well--hint, hint!
