I sold 3 out of my 5 exhibition pieces and many of my small art pieces in our separate sales area. All of the necklaces I brought were sold. My apologies to customers who came looking for necklaces on Saturday to find them gone. But please don't forget I have an Etsy shop (see sidebar)! All in all a very good show for me as well:)
After basking in the glow for two days during the show, I came down to earth rather sharply when I looked around at all the chaos I left behind at home. An added reality check came the following day when I found myself up to my elbows in (clean) water reaching into the toilet tank to replace a broken part. Ah well, nothing lasts forever:)
More good news! I am thrilled to report that the following three pieces will be part of this year's '.Threadworks Exhibition at the Wellington County Museum and Archives. As soon as I read that the theme was 'Flashback' I knew I had to apply! These three pieces each describe a different aspect of the theme, from coming of age in the sixties, to questions about a group of old weatherbeaten kitchen chairs in a field in PEI, to a piece taken from an old instamatic camera photo of my son and I as he discovered blueberries growing in the Gatineau Hills (he is now 42).

As well, I just shipped two pieces to Edmonton for the Focus on Fibre Art Association show
' My Heritage' . The show opens on May 5, 2016.

So back to work. This is the time of year when I need to start applying for fall shows as well so - no time to rest. I am pulling up applications, taking photos and dreaming about new work.....But first the dreaded taxes......
