Answering the Call

The photo I took of the prairie grasses in bloom... they kept singing, "Stich me!  Oh Please, stitch me!"

 

So I answered the call.  : )  I worked all afternoon and into the evening on this one, completely unplugged.  I think I am about 40% done, and 99% fulfilled!

unplugged.  work in progress.

It's been raining for 2 days, and it will rain for two more.  I'm going to finish up a bit more stitching with the silks from Margot and then deepen the purples with 12 wt thread another day.  This afternoon I need have a nap, and then drive down to Regina and back !  Tonight at 7 pm is the reception for the biennial touring juried show of the Saskatchewan Craft Council - Dimensions - which is also celebrating it's 30th year.  What to wear? What  to wear?  (Besides rubber boots, rain gear and an umbrella.) The show & reception is at the MacKenzie Art Gallery.  I am so excited to see the entire exhibit!  I still can't believe I get to be part of it.  WOO!

Have a great night!
