Countdown to Showtime!

I think I'm done creating yarn embroideries for the show.  The next week, I will focus on completing extra threadpaintings for our Show & Sale.  Here's some eye candy to get you started!  : )



April 13, 14, 15 !  : )










If you read through the show poster, you can see the list of artists in the group that will have art for sale.  You can expect to see wall art of all sizes in a range of mediums including oil, acrylic, graphite, watercolour, ink, mixed media, batik, and fibre.  All art will be new pieces, and originals (no prints).

The event is free and the venue is wheelchair accessible.  Bring a friend! : )  We'll have live background music and refreshments.  Just a note, all art is available and must remain on display for the duration of the show.  See ya there!

Artists' Workshop

In about 2 weeks, I have another big three day event to produce for.  This will be the annual Spring Show & Sale with my new group.  The more I learn about the art, backgrounds, and techniques of the other women, the more honoured I feel to be a part of this community.  It's overwhelming and hugely humbling.  The Mondays are going so great and I've been so productive too!

Here is the show poster.  Mark your calendars!


We'll have coffee, tea, dainties, and a bit of live background music as well.  The even is free. I understand that the art is to remain on display until the end of the show, so any time you drop in over the three days, you'll be able to take it all in.  Purchased work will be marked as sold.


That poster has a sampling of past yarn work.  I'll have a batch of yarn embroidery as well as threadpaintings and thread drawings as well, in a variety of sizes.  After spending a weekend with member Cindy Wright and her watercolours, I'm really looking forward to seeing all the art.  We have a variety of paint styles and techniques, watercolour, batik, illustrations, pencil like you have never seen before, still life, landscapes...  It's going to be good!! 

Then we take the summer off, which I already know is going to leave a hole in my creative life.  I best get stitching. 

Oh and one more thing...
THANK YOU to everyone who came by to check out the art at Gardenscape last weekend.  : )

March. Really!?

I can hardly believe it's MARCH.  We've had the coldest, sunniest winter ever I think.  It just warmed up and wouldn't you know it?  There's a big snow blizzard floating across North America.  Need some cheering up?  How about this?  "3 more weeks to Spring!" and "3 more weeks to GARDENSCAPE!"


This will be my 8th consecutive year selling my art at this event.  The artists will all be set up again in Hall E.  I believe this year will be the biggest art event there yet.  I'm working away...  getting my threadpaintings ready!  I'm currently working on this big one that will be in a 15x20" frame.

work in progress

All of the work I'll have available at Gardenscape in Saskatoon will be my Threadpaintings which are framed and matted under glass.  I won't have my yarn embroideries available in such a public space because those are not put under glass.  And... you know, people get a little too 'handsy' around yarn.  : )  Three days and thousands of spectators will require some glass as a barrier.

I have yet another show & sale the very next month with my new group!  That's exciting, and a lot of production while maintaining stock at Handmade House.  So... I guess I'll sign off here and get back to stitching!  : )

Have a great weekend everyone.
