What I'm Working On... A Little Bit of Everything.

Would you believe it if I told you I'm practicing up for a flash mob dance!?  90's hip hop is the most painful thing I've ever done.  lol  Lots of stomping and hunching and shrugging shoulders.  Wow.  I really hope I can make it through all the choreography, because this is something I have on my bucket list.  (sorry - no photos yet)

In the mean time...

done!!  done-done.  oh it was so much work, but I'm done!  : )

Tuesday morning, I brought in all the rest of my work to the most wonderful Donna - she's the woman at Cindy Moleski's photography studio that is doing my framing.  I am so incredibly happy with it!  I took home two pieces that I dropped off last week and WOW.  The matting is perfect.  The frames are incredible.  The backs are papered, sealed, and stamped.  They are wired properly with rubber tabs behind each bottom corner.  Superb.  Oh, I feel like a big girl! ; )

stitching my initials in

Right now I'm working on non-sewing things.  Things like cataloging photos of my work, making ads for the next show, trying to build a mail list, and cleaning up an article I wrote for a magazine that is due in a week.  As for videos - that would be up to Mr. My Sweet Prairie.  He's the techie, not me.  Sorry for all of you who are still waiting!  Between my work and his, we haven't had much spare time to collaborate.  (Case in point: it's 10:45 pm.  He's in his office, I'm in mine.)  It feels like once the kids are in bed, we are moonlighting.

I have to show you this... Here's the university hallway where I wrote up a proposal one night on my laptop while waiting for my boys to finish a class.  It was a wonderful two hours of uninterrupted quiet.  I even caught a little nap.  Check out the signage!!

That last word... can you say that 3 times fast?  Can you even say it once?

I had to snap a pic of that.  I have never seen a word so long!  Maybe I'll ad that to my bucket list.  : )

Have a great week everyone.  Please say hi if you come by the Little Gems show at The Mix on the weekend.  I plan to be there Friday evening and Sunday afternoon.  Linking to WIP Wednesday at TN&TN.

90s flash mob dance? You go, and you go hard, Monika! :-)

I'm speechless as always about your work…

And, ah, the ironically named College of Ed! That's the only sign in the building that's clearly written. There are others that point people in completely wrong directions. For two years, I practically lived there and I still have no idea where room 1254 is… But I do love that the welcome is extended in Cree as well. :-)

Neat seeing all your pieces together like that. The framed ones must be quite beautiful.
You really are busy!
That is quite a word!

elle said...

my gosh! And you dance, too! You are a tough act to follow, Monika. lol

Patti said...

It's so nice to be reminded of all that beauty under the snow! Great sign too!

Pronouncing the last word would be hard but having to spell it in a contest would be worse...especially since I have a hard time with the english language. I learned to spell in the age of Phonics!
Great work Monica wish I could make it to an exhibit to see it in person.

Oh wow!! that dance thing sounds like a blast!! Not that I'd try it now...lol. But love dancing. Please keep us up on it. Love your work; of course.

Fabulous collection of work!

Juanita said...

Congrats on finishing up your beautiful pieces and the flash mob sounds like great fun. I've been trying to convince my women's choir...
Wish I could attend your show.

Sheila said...

What can I say other than your work is amazing !

Sam said...

Very exciting stuff. I hope we get to see pictures after.

Susan Being Snippy said...

I have never even seen a flash mob, never mind being part of one! That would be so fun! I would love to be part of one but it would need to be old ladies with grey hair and canes! hahahaha! Hey, that could be a quilt guild meeting!

Regina said...

Congrats on the finishes! And I wish schools would teach at least the first rudiments of the local native language.

Happy Turtle said...

They are so so beautiful.
I hope we'll get to see a video of the dance!
