In Production - Preparing for Dog River

No finishes this week!  I did start a whole new batch of Wish You Were Here Prairie Postcards for my trip down to Dog River Days in Rouleau.  I hope to fill my whole spinning display rack with these new, happy summer cards.  This batch is very SUN-SHINY, bright, and joyful.



I've been playing around with commercial batik prints and having a blast!  So far, I only have some bare-bones compositions put together.  I love them.  I'll have to think about how I'll free motion & embellish these.

Then I stopped to spend some 'conference teaching time' with a student on Skype.  It was great!  It was a follow-up from the last class I did.  Her audio crapped out at the end which was unfortunate.  But - we did it and she said she was very happy & would do it again any time.  It was quite easy to just set up my laptop near my machine.  She paid the same as all the other students & and I sent some kit materials to her in the mail.

Skyping with someone on the east coast.

It is pretty amazing what we can do these days.  Today was quite humerous.  Once we were on, her dog began to bark.  Then my dog began to bark.  Then my daughter came home with a friend.  Then the dogs barked some more.  Then my boys returned home with more kids to play with.  haha.  Well... it is summer holidays.  I'll be Skype-teaching more once I'm settled in to my new space & the kids are in school.

I can't wait! 

And then I continued to put together a few more card designs.  I totally dig these!!


HAPPY SUMMER

I love using batiks in my work! Yours are very lively and sun shiny! I can't wait to see them.

So creative! It's amazing what you can create from 2 or 3 pieces of fabric!

Batiks certainly are great to work with. I recently made a folded star booklet from a piece of batik that I had put wheat paste on and I was really pleased with how it turned out.
Hope it works out that you'll be able to spend a day or afternoon in Regina before going to Rouleau!
