Works in Progress & Edmonton on the Horizon

It's been a busy week!  I am STILL finishing the '2014 Wish You Were Here' quilted postcards.  There are several dozens of them.  I'm so close though!  Just thirty or forty edges left...


I particularly love the one on top there.  It's a mock version of my big 'Prairie City' threadpainting.  I like it.  I think I'll make more.  (**Please do not outright copy my art.  Thank you!)  These will all be for sale soon.  I plan to split them up between the Craft Council Boutique and my Etsy shop (that is gathering dust).  I may frame up some of my favorites for Gardenscape.  Part of me is tempted to have a photography exhibit instead of fibre art.  I'll keep you posted on that.  Gardenscape is still a month away.

For now, work - work - work...


PS - I plan to be in Edmonton during the first week of May.  If anyone is interested in hosting my Creative Quilted Postcards Workshop, please let me know!  It's a 3 to 4 hr workshop and I supply EVERYTHING but machines & thread.  That would help me pay my way as I snoop around the FFAA Prairie show in search of treasures for the show I'm curating.  (!)  ; ) 

I can be contacted directly at monika @ mysweetprairie .ca for more information.  The workshop & kit fee are very affordable.

Talk soon!

Great work Monika. Wish I could get to one of your workshops but it's a bit far to go. xx

I love the one on top, too. Your postcards are such a lovely pile of colour and texture. Thanks for sharing your sewing room. It looks like home, to me.

Postkartenseiten zu nähen ist nicht sehr artistisch, aber einmal begonnen geht das eigentlich doch recht flott - andererseits sind es wieviele...?
