Personally, I love those plum colors! Next, you guessed. I must include a canola piece. This one is BIG and it happens to be my very first piece that has an exclamation point in the title! ; )

|lots of fine detail in this one... all hand stitched with thread.|
This is done too. I think I have a good shot of the sparkle.

I won't lie - I am entirely proud of myself. This collection is absolutely my best work yet. I really hope they put a huge shot of beauty and pretty into the restaurant where they will hang. I hope people fall in love with some of them. I hope it plucks at the heartstrings of prairie lovers in Manitoba. : )))
Can you believe it? I have eight more to complete in three weeks. I don't know how I am going to do it, but I will. I am working intensely for this next exhibit. All these works will be for sale, but not until May. See the ad below!
|WINNIPEG ONLY - May 2013|
That is the poster that the folks at McNally Robinson's in Manitoba made. WOOO that's only a month away! I am suddenly feeling the NERVES. oh my. I haven't felt it this bad since I had to speak & give a personal slide show to our Quilt guild a couple years ago. THAT was terrifying (before hand, not during). BREATHE. I can do this. I can.
I have to say a big big thank you to my framer Donna @ Cindy Moleski's in Saskatoon
who is matting and framing this entire show (2 dozen pieces). They look smashingly high class once she is done with them. : ) For example, this next one...
|Red Barn in Winter, 2013 Shipped with love to New York just this morning. XO|
Coincidentally, that is my first sale to the US. THANK YOU C. ! TO celebrate, I put in a big order for more fibre art supplies. I'm going to have a sweet summer (that is... if it ever arrives!).
Have a great week everyone!
p.s. Check your yards - I have daylilies poking up on the south side!
