In my studio

Almost finished!

Almost finished!

Hi everyone!  Good morning! 🙂

In my studio this week I hope to finish Rose Hips.  It was on my list of things to finish last week, but I ran into difficulties with the leaves, took a morning off for Plein Air hooking, and some things came up other than rug hooking.  So had to deal with them.  It is going to be finished this week.

Also I am hoping to put together fibre kits  for classes.  Once I start working on them I can determine if I need another dye day or two to dye more fibre.

I also need to prepare for a trip to Alberta next week.  We have a memorial service to attend for a very special woman – the woman who taught me to rug hook.

But before we go, I will be celebrating the end of one of the groups I attend for summer break this week as well.  Plus the gym, and possibly more company.  We enjoyed company for a bit this weekend, and expect some today briefly, and again on Wednesday, and possibly Thursday.

Then Friday evening at 7 PM at the Mackenzie Art Gallery is the opening reception for Dimensions 2015.  I hope to attend. 🙂

Timeless Tuesday

Hardanger-diamond-ornament

Today I have the whole morning to myself!  Oh my, what to do?   I stitched this hardanger star ornament a few years ago.  I am looking for some hardanger kits I have around here somewhere.  I am thinking more ornaments.  A bit of fun and a short break.

I also have a young friend and her mom coming over to bake and decorate a gingerbread house.  I love the excitement, innocence, and energy kids bring to life!  Everything is imbued with a childlike sense of curiosity and wonder.

This week I am working on finishing Prairie Sky wall hangings for Traditions and the SCC Boutique.

I went through my stash of finished wall hangings and turned up six or more that need hanging sleeves attached.  That is on my radar also this week.  At least making the sleeves will be.  Attaching them may have to wait for another time…  We will see what the season holds.
