Art Sale & Winner Announced

First - YAY!  and congrats to Suztats.  My daughter picked #28.  That would be you!  Blogger

Fabulous giveaway! I love variegated threads. It doesn't matter if they're cotton, silk, or rayon--I love them all and just can't get my fill. Like you, I have to order them online, but it's like Christmas when they do arrive.  Congrats on your upcoming 4th Blogaversary!!! Yahoo!

This will be one fully loaded box.  Enjoy!  Please let me know when it arrives, and what you think of the contents.   I must say I feel guilty not being able to say yes to everyone.  I loved reading through the comments.  The most requested hard-to-find things were pretty unanimous.
 #1 - silk ribbon. 
 #2 - time. 
 #3 - pretty/unusual embroidery threads. 
 #4 - beads. 
Enjoy the sponsors.  A few of them sell silk ribbon FYI so feel free to shop around.  As for time, I'm with you all on that!

I want to take this time to mention that with spring comes Gardenscape - the big backyard living show at Prairieland Park in Saskatoon.  As always, myself and a group of 30+ more artists will have floral and landscape themed art for sale throughout the duration of the show.  There will be photography, paintings, and fibre as well.  I won't be there for all three days but there are always volunteers on hand to help arrange purchases and get those little red 'sold' dots on the art of your choice.  Thank you to everyone who comes to support the artists.

At Gardenscape, there are seedlings, plants, loads of flowers in bloom, landscaping displays, and patio furniture, bbqs, food vendors, demos and speakers all weekend long, to name a few offerings.  New this year is BUTTERFLIES!!  I have to take my kids.  This will be so wonderful!


This will be my fourth year selling art there.  On my display board I'll have a handful of original thread paintings large and small, along with some special new surprises.  I will be there for a bit on Friday the 28th and also on Sunday the 30th.  See you then!

Oh My Goodness Monika! What a wonderful box full of goodies you sent me!!! I don't know what some of the stuff is (let alone how to use it--yet!) but I shall certainly have fun experimenting. Thank you, too, for including such yummy variegated threads, and silk ribbon, and silk threads! Have you been reading my blog? lol You must have known I'm in a purple phase. These purple threads and ribbons will be used on a very special purple project I've been planning for some time. The beige threads and silk ribbon will be appearing on a wedding gift I'm planning. They're perfect! So much fiber magic. I am going to have to look up fish leather, and discover how to use it, silk casings, and cocoons. I love everything!
Thank you so much for such a generous giveaway! I haven't stopped oohing and ahhing, and smiling since the package arrived! Oh, I am going to have such fun!!
