I've been enjoying Instagram very much. I've been using it a bit like a blog in spome respects. If you are on IG, my 'handle' is monika_kinner
I did it! I sent in my parcel to Threadworks for jurying! I'll find out what happens by April 8th / the first day of Gardenscape. Guess what!? Since then, I also received a letter of accepted instructing me to mail my entry off to Alberta for the Focus on Fibre Art Association's biennial show. I had a great sweep of ribbons and prizes from the last one they had in 2014, which was entirely exciting! I'm not anticipating anything like that again, but I am very happy to be part of the show! It tours Alberta venues for much of the year. I hope to see the show as the entries are all over the fibre map.
I've been having commissions roll in, including one for a yarn embroidery! I'm super excited about that. Those yarn paintings are pretty near and dear to my creative heart.
Woah - there goes another coughing and dizzy spell. I must get me better. April, May & June I have a whole bunch of artist lectures to do! I was asked to be a guest speaker to the Saskatoon Modern Quilt Guild, Saskatoon Quilter's Guild, Edmonton Quilt Guild, Olds Fibre Potpourri Retreat, and the Regina Piecemakers. Crazy, right? I hope I didn't miss any. : ) I sure look forward to travelling and visits this spring.
Okeedokee. I'm off to cuddle up under a quilt with my babies and sip something with honey and lemon.
