Challenges, Changes.

I think I'm ready!  Sunday will be here before you know it.  I have the bulk of my vendor items ready for June 14th - the 1st annual Modern Quilt Guild show in Saskatoon.


I have 8 little entries into the postcards section.  I have another batch that will be available in my booth.


I feel that the more I make, the closer I get to pulling off a Modern landscape design.  This next one is my favourite cityscape.  It's a take off of 'Prairie City'.


I really like this next one.  It's a simple prairie landscape with modern fabrics.  I love the angles in it.


These were so very fun to play with.  They were a little more 'on purpose' than the abstract ones that I am putting into the show.  Still - it's FUN, and it was a great learning opportunity.

I will also have Postcard supplies available - lots of them!  I will have sign up sheets for classes I teach.


I will also have some embellishments.  I stocked up with some great decorative yarns from garage sales and thrift shops, and was able to put some more really nice colourways together.  They are mostly sythetic with lots of sparkle and fluff - perfect for art quilts and postcards.


All of my art print cards that I ordered arrived as well.  Add a few threadpaintings and I'm set.  So that's what I've been working on.

I'm officially stepping down from The Needle & Thread Network which I started quite a few years ago.  The new hostess is Laurel from Manitoba.  I met her when I taught in Winnipeg 2 yrs back.  Thank you Laurel for taking my place.  I really appreciate it.

When one door closes, another door opens, right?  Well, today I'm spending some time training for a weekly shift at Handmade House.  No kidding!  I'm going to be working there over the next while.  It's only a day per week, but I'm still nervous.  The last time I did any kind of retail, I was sixteen years old.  I'm three times that now.  lol  It will be different indeed.  I look forward to it.  : )

Have a great week.

Monika, I think you will enjoy your time at Handmade House once you've learned the routines. It's rewarding to work with the public and especially at a place within your interests.
Those postcards are the exact opposite of your usual work. It's hard to move into the abstract , for me anyway. They're great!
