My First Juried Show

This afternoon, I got the exciting news that one of my fiber art pieces, The Tetagouche River Embankment, has been juried into the SAQA Atlantic region show, Structures. It opens on June 5th at the Art Gallery of St Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, NS. I'm not sure yet if I'll make the opening but it would fun. One of the venues is Charlottetown, PEI. I might get to that one.

I'm ready and packed for my workshop tomorrow. My husband helped me drop off my Rubbermaid box of supplies over to the Sobey's room so I'll just have my sewing machine cart tomorrow morning.

Since then, I've put in about an hour of thread painting on the Wave. It seems hardly noticeable because I've still been adding the darker colors before I can get to the high lights and white parts of the wave. I did stitch down the surfer (my son) and do some of the detail work there.

Is it ever going to stop snowing? This view through my studio window would be beautiful were it mid winter. Enough already.

I so wanted to wear my bright new shoes tomorrow. We'll see how much snow is actually on the ground Maybe I'll get away with them.

They're actually made of woven 1/4" elastic on top--so comfy.
