Heart to Hand - on now! : )

It's up!  Today is the day.  What a trip it's been preparing for this.  I am pretty proud of it!  It was a lot of work and a lot of new territory.  It's all hot off the tails of my 2013 pieces: Emerging, Rebirth, and this year's award winner: Where Sunlight Falls.  It feels like I'm breaking personal ground using a feature spot to present new work.  I think it's all good though - so far the feedback has been marvelous.   I will never stop threadpainting, but I'm crossing my fingers that people will love them enough to give them new homes like they have with my work in the past.

Featured Artist until the end of August 2014 - 'Heart to Hand'  Glimpses of Prairie Stitched with Love

Heart to Hand is just that.  It's stitches of things dear to me.  It features large stitching of tiny parts of the prairie.  It's a little different from the fine threadpaintings of broad vistas that I usually do.  They are all framed and matted without glass thanks to the expertise of Cindy Moleski and Donna Harding - my fabulous framing team.  Heart to Hand is also the way I measure the yarns that I stitch with.  Here is a look at some of the work available.

And now.  Now I have a break to rejuvenate, plant seeds for the future, reflect on the accomplishments of the past.  I'll work on my studio, play with my family, make a little more art to keep the show well stocked.  Thank you so much to the folks at Handmade House for supporting my work like this.  It's a real honour.

Handmade House is open 7 days a week at 710 Broadway Ave in Saskatoon - just a block down from the SK Craft Council where my postcards are.  Their website is here.  Enjoy the show!  : )

Wow, these are so different, but still recognizably your work. I hope you won't stop making the little snap shot scenes of a view. These are a tiny close up of a single spot within the view. Always gorgeous!

It's a great collection Monika - well done and good luck with the exhibition. They are all lovely but I have to say my favourite is Gathering. The framing sets them off beautifully. Enjoy your planning time. xx
