I've been given a stack of silk hankies to play with. :-)
Not sure what I'll do with them yet - embroider them, add them to some wire cuffs, knit with them perhaps - until I know they'll sit on a shelf being beautiful and inspiring.

Last couple of weeks of summer holidays so not much benchwork going on amidst the fulltime parenting.
But we do get to do some fun stuff :)

end result = one cool wall hanging

Sometimes it is so, especially when the living is in a holiday cottage or vacation rental, or even cutting everything loose to stay under canvas in a wooded glade (though maybe not so much with the recent thunder storm). Cue endless days, tempo rubato living.

I have a few items from this year's 'home is where the heart is' show in another gallery exhibition, this time in New Westminster. The Amelia Douglas gallery inside Douglas College is hosting a staff/student/faculty exhibition, a big to-DO. The gallery's normally closed Sundays but this weekend is the New Westminster Culture Crawl so it will be open 11am to 5pm.
Please visit (pretty please).

This week I added some couching to vary the lines of pipework (and omg, there is an awesome amount of pipework to complete) using two different shades of grey for texture.
The grey, oh the grey of it.
Just for some fun i'm planning to add some splashes of colour in odd places.
But for now I plug away with the grey.
On a side note, and somewhat more inspiring, the embroidered floral initial is bound for framing soon. I washed it last night after checking in with the framer for matte board, stand offs and frame yesterday. Today - ironing then off to the framer.
Yes - i'll update with pics :)

This afternoon, on my way home from work, I called in to the Blackberry Gift Shop to photograph the monthly featured artist display. Writing blog posts and keeping up with social media is one of my volunteer roles for the society.
I consider writing and my amateur photography part of my creative life, so this week's studio portrait is me out in the field at work :)
