...but you didn't need to read all that. Boring technical difficulties! : )
I finished off another little canola field. I left one in the Craft Council Boutique and it was sold right away. "Road Trip" - thank you so much to the new owner! I've had my work moving at the MacKenzie Gallery shop in Regina too! Wonderful news!

And I am slowly (slowest ever) getting this class sample done. It's so pretty, but because I've never done this piece before, I am taking my time. I don't want to wreck it!

It's interesting going back and forth between yarn/crewel embroidery and free machine threadpaintings. They are such entirely different processes. I forgot how fast machine work is in comparison to hand stitching large pieces. It's good for me to break up the style and approach. Too much of one thing can get uninspiring. I admit, I miss the hum of the sewing machine. I feel a surge now of wanting to do a whole pile of free motion pieces again! Now that I'm settled in my space, it's all coming together so much easier. The studio visits are helpful because they force me to tidy up and keep things fairly organized.
Today is the day I put all the class supplies together for the schools I'll be at this week. Did I say 100 kids? I was wrong. It's 125. I can hardly wait to show you all the beautiful projects they will be doing! Also, if you don't hear back from me soon, Thursday is the curator's talk at 7pm for the Our Prairie in Fibre exhibition. It was a great show to put together and I'm excited to share my experience with you. I'm not sure how long I'm supposed to talk, but I'm guessing it will be an hour? 813 Broadway Avenue, Saskatoon. The show will stay up until Feb 21. See you there! : )
