Hey Toronto! My lovely @cosmocampbell is having his first show. This is him yesterday signing his prints before they go for framing. For those of you who don't know him, check out #nocturnaltourist For this series he shoots urban & industrial buildings & landscapes at night, often in the middle of winter at insanely cold temps. (Apparently snow = clean palette so worth the frostbite. ๐Ÿ˜ฌโ„๏ธ) Excited for him that he's finally getting to exhibit his work. Come and check it out. Oct 5 at 7pm. The show is on until Oct 18 at @theblackcat_to

So I've had requests for more details on how the whole #tattooquilt will be put together. As you know, it's a work in progress, but here's the big plan for you to get a better idea. Finished size (for those of you already shopping for backing - you know who you are! ๐Ÿ˜‰) is looking to be around 63" x 72". But I'd allow a bit extra as you never know. This project seems to have developed a life of its own, and is evolving as events around us are happening. Kind of like "tattoo quilt LIVE!" So there you have it. Hope this helps. Thanks to my amazing team of testers for your brilliant work so far, and for the support of those of you who are following along making the blocks in blind faith. ๐Ÿ˜˜ FYI for those keen on the paper crane #PEACEtattoopattern I will be doing both peace blocks. Because hey, we need more peace damnit! โ˜ฎ๏ธ๐Ÿ’Ÿ

First workshop of the season calls for cupcakes. ๐Ÿ’•

No tattoo quilts today. Just some sweet #linenandsolids for a spot of secret sewing. Catching up on my to do list! This #EssexHomespun is the biz! #konasolids

On August 6, 1945, #SadakoSasaki was exposed to radiation from the atomic bomb in Hiroshima. She was just two years old. A few years later she was diagnosed with leukaemia. Believing the old Japanese fable that claims that if you fold 1,000 paper cranes you will be granted a wish, Sadako began folding these origami cranes with the hopes that she might wish to be cured. Sadly, she died at age 10 after folding an amazing 1,400 paper cranes. The #HiroshimaPeaceMemorialMuseum honours her story. In addition, her family set up the Sadako Legacy which, amongst other things, donates some of the precious paper cranes made by Sadako to places in need of healing around the world - including the 9-11 Memorial Museum in NY.
I cannot digest the fact that over 7 decades later we are still talking about nuclear bombs. Write to your leaders and demand that they come to their senses. Mail them a paper crane and explain why. This block is designed to send out a positive intention for peace in the world. Please, please may this insanity come to an end.

Making progress with PEACE. No y-seams, but definitely one to exercise a little accuracy with though. Practice makes perfect, right?! ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผโœจ

The toughest part of this paper crane version of my #PEACEtattoopattern has been fabric selection. Each crane needs 3 tones of the same colour to create the 3D origami effect. Would be a doddle with solids but I have to stick with the prints look I have going on the other blocks so far. I started this in Vancouver but didn't have the yellows & greens needed. Think I nailed the pink one though. Back on it tomorrow.

Holidays are awesome, but getting back into the old routine is too. Home in Toronto after a month away. Kids back at school. Breakie with @cbctoronto's Anna Maria Tremonti on the blower. Long list of work and to do's for the next few months.

Warm, dry summer breeze, crisp, crunchy grass, rolling hills and beautiful big Canadian sky. Road tripping to UBC Kelowna to take kid 1 back to uni. #lifeisgood โค๏ธ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ

Sunset, Kayaks, SUPS, dragon boaters, yachts, pirate ship, Bard on the Beach, runners, walkers, roller bladers, cyclists, Hari Krishnas, laughter, bongo drummer, seagulls, dogs, Granville island, English bay, Vancouver island. All in two minutes. Vancouver is just so awesome! ๐Ÿ’™

Standing up to inequalities, racism and prejudice requires courage, vim & vigour. Many are marching to stand up for their rights and freedom, or for those of others. Confrontation is uncomfortable, and scary at times. But we are stronger as a community - especially when standing in unity for that which is good & kind. If you have fire in your belly that's busting to get out, you'll need to muster up some MOXIE!
MOXIE means courage, nerve, vigour, or fortitude
Having moxie means having enough cleverness, skill, creativity, & fortitude to solve a difficult or threatening situation.
Word Origin and History:
Etymology sources suggest the earliest record of the word "Moxie" was in New England area where the Abenaki people's used it to mean "dark water". There is a lake, river and waterfall named Moxie. In 1885 there was a medicine patented Moxie, which advertised to "build up your nerve;" In 1930 Moxie was branded as a bitter, soft drink, which is still available in the USA today.
