Curating / Hibernating.

I'm just writing to let you all know that I'm skipping Saturday Stitches today.  I am spending the weekend going through the submissions for the show I'm curating.  There is a nice big bunch to look through with more on the way.  It's ASTOUNDING.  Some pieces made me look twice - super interesting.  Some made me burst out giggling at the sheer creativity - who would have thought to do THAT in fibre!?.  Some made me quiet and contemplative, flooding me with good memories.  Some made me cry - THIS speaks volumes as to why I love the prairies.

This curating thing is amazing.  I'm learning so much on so many levels.  I had a vision to fill a room.  This is coming together with the magic of potlucks.  You know, when everyone is told to bring something and it turns out that you get one of everything with no consultation beforehand?  Everything I wished for is showing up either in an email or in an envelope.

I truly look forward for opening night which is about forty-nine weeks away (but who's counting).  I hope everyone viewing this show has the same reactions I am getting.  Thank you so much to the SK Craft Council for taking a chance on this exhibition.  It's been very stimulating to be exposed to so much beautiful prairie-love infused fibre art.  : )

Also, thank you SO much for all the reactions to my last piece.  It got something like 1400 views on FB!?  Insane. 

As for the weather, it is STILL winter.

downtown train, last winter

I'll see you next week...
