Hubby and I wandered over to the Art Gallery of Regina on the weekend to check out the Salon Show and Sale with fewer people around. We took the opportunity to snap a few photos as well. The show seems to be going well.
I am not fond of the way they wanted my work hung, but in order to meet the conditions of being in the show there was no alternative but to follow their directions. They wanted all work hung from one nail, mine with a cord. I prefer a hidden hanging system for my work and hang it that way at home. I use two cup hooks at either side, just behind the edges of the wall hanging, and slip my hanging rods into those. I think the cord and one nail cheapens the look of my work, and am not happy with it.
I hooked more this weekend. “Moss” is coming along fine. I should be finished hooking it by the end of the week.
Other than that, I’m busy switching to Korean time early to give me more time to enjoy the trip while I’m there. I currently arise around 1 PM and go to bed around 4 AM. It gives me lots of peace and quiet to think and read…and to watch the odd movie! Ultimately my goal is to go to bed at 7 AM and get up at 3 or 4 PM. Time is short to make that shift.
I am also getting my walking legs back in shape. I see from our proposed schedule that there will be a lot of walking in South Korea. So I am putting in a couple hours a day walking. Thankfully I live in a good neighborhood for walking, though there aren’t many hills to practice climbing. South Korea is quite mountainous, especially around Seoul, Busan, and Gyeongju, where we will be.
This week I’ll continue to hook on “Moss” and prepare for South Korea. I have to provide my books to the accountant to do my business taxes while we’re gone, so it will be a busy week. And I need to pick up an extra SD card for my DSLR camera. It will be a productive week I hope. But come Friday I’ll have fewer daytime hours to do things in. I want everything purchased for the trip by then.
