We had some discussion about sky colour, flowers, fences and such. It's a small piece, but I am still giggling at myself with how much I managed to work into it. Here it is! 3x5 inches, all free machine embroidery with the exception of the fence and my signature.

I hope they love it. It always makes me a little nervous to know that it's a gift for someone else. You know - maybe the buyer loves it, but what if the recipient isn't into it? I'll hear back soon to see how it went over. Holding my breath...
So today is 'delivery day' after the labour day weekend. ahha punny. I will send off a mini threadpainting to France (thank you!), the Goldenrods at Pike Lake commission will reside in Edmonton, and The Journey will be dropped off here in Saskatoon.
Now to prepare for the Solar Gardens sale coming up Sept 19 & 20th. I will have my prairie threadpaintings as well as some new yarn embroidery, possibly a few surprises as well! Incidentally, Ken Wilkinson will be selling his pottery out there. He's the artist I paired up with for the 'Ceramics and Stitchery' exhibition in Melfort this spring! : ) There will also be prints, paintings, glass, illustrations, and more. Maybe we'll see you there?
