|From Sketch to Stitch 4 page article|
There are several threadpaintings displayed in the magazine that I'm sure the owners will be excited to see! There are pieces residing in Saskatoon, Calgary, California, and Jackfish Lake collections. : )

I hope you enjoy the article. It has a different slant on the use of sketchbooks than most artists might, because I begin my art with collecting and editing photographs. I owe the 'lightbulb moment' to the work of Canadian artist Sharron Begg. You'll have to read the article to find out why. ; ) You can also head over to her blog to enjoy her work, and DO click on her Inks tab. I love her inks.
I'm about to hit the highway, so perhaps I'll pick up more copies in Regina. I'm off to Wolseley to do some workshops at a 3 day spring quilting retreat. I hope I spelled that right. No matter how I spell it, my computer tells me I'm doing it wrong. ; ) I'm really excited about this trip, because I have never attended a quilting retreat with food and lodging - like, ever! Thanks so much Liz at Tiger Lily Quilts for inviting me to do this.
and have a Happy Thursday,
