Hi everyone. This week has been busy. I have been preparing for an upcoming show and sale. I relabeled and packaged up “Dancing Tree” and “Blue-eyed Grass” for the Art Gallery of Regina Salon Show and Sale. I’ll drop them off at the gallery in the Neil Balkwill Civic Arts Centre later today. The show starts March 22nd, 2017 and goes till May 5th. I’ll be at the opening briefly on March 22nd, which is between 7 and 9 PM. If you want to meet me there, contact me first to make sure we don’t miss each other.
If you’d like a studio tour while you’re in town for the show, please let me know ahead of time. I will be away from the studio for two weeks in April.
I also managed to update and write more of a lesson plan for my student this weekend. I am looking forward to exploring the world of rug hooking with her.
This week I am sorting through my greys and blacks and doing a full deconstruction of wool clothing. In the past it was partly done, but not wholly. So now I am cutting off seam finishes, ripping the fabric (pants, jackets, and skirts) down to a size that a cutter will handle easily, and pressing the pieces. Then I’ll put them away. This is taking surprisingly longer than I thought it would. So far I’ve devoted four hours to the greys alone. I figure I have about that to go. I have a lot of grey and black fiber. My goal is to save some space in my storage units.
Hope everyone has a great St. Patrick’s Day! I’ll be celebrating with the boarder today. Hubby is off to a supper with some ex-coworkers to talk shop and do some mentoring. It’s pizza night here. Might have to throw in a green salad! 🙂
