As much as I love my job this is how I’m feeling about the last week of school and the two days of class cleanup before I can stitch alllllllllllll summer.
My parents have five children, three of those five are artists in some capacity. Something that always amazes me when I go home is how much of our work they have up on their walls. Every Christmas, birthday or Father’s Day gift finds a cherished spot in their home. I have always felt so secure pursuing this weird little thread painting journey because my parents have supported it as fully as they supported my university degree. Whenever I’m home and see our work hanging proudly I am overwhelmed with gratitude for being raised to value art in all its mediums.
I’m really fun at parties.
I broke my jaw when I was 19 and I have been obsessed with mandibles ever since. I have so many of these wee little patches all over everything.
I’m a little blue so here’s a little cotton candy rose. 💙🌹
Thought I would try a couple polar bears. White is sometimes a harder sell, filthy kids hands and all... but they are so cute! They’ll be with me in a few weeks at the Cheerfully Made #etsyhandmadeincanada show in Kanata.
This hot weather makes me think of my wedding day and all the stitching I did for it. How could it have been the best day ever if I wasn’t stitching something?
So happy I was able to finish this piece before this show. . . If you know what book this is from we can be friends.
Come see me this weekend at the aviation museum with @muttmunchyeg. Slinging stitches and stickers 10-4 both days.
Organizing, pricing, and lint rolling cat hair off all my pieces for etsy's handmade in Canada show this weekend. 😴
I'm going to have a ton of teeny floral pendants with me at etsy's handmade in Canada spring show this weekend . . . . . . . I only use @dandelyne hoops for my pendants. Not only is Son an absolute doll to work with, her mini hoops are the original and by far the BEST quality. Totally worth the wait to ship to Canada from Australia.
Etsy made in Canada is in 5 days. I have so much stitching to do. 🎉🙌🏻🎉
Happy Mother's Day to all the people who are mothers, have mothers, yearn to be mothers, have lost their mothers, have a strained relationship with their mothers and who have made the choice to never be mothers. Have a wonderful, beautiful day. 💕🌸
Stitching in the sunshine today. 🌞
Wee lil roses.
I wonder if the old lady who donated all this vintage fabric ever imagined this was how it was going to end up.
