Studio work

Since I got home I have been framing and organizing art work for the watercolour group show at the Denman Island Summer Art Gallery. Our show opens on May 22.


At home I have been working on my embroidery and on my hexagons.


I ordered fabric today for the Colette Moneta dress pattern, and I made the effort to find a Canadian source for online fabric, L'oiseau Fabrics in Calgary.

As I was getting brain dead from trying to be creative, I cut out an apron from some kitchen patterned fabric that I purchased at Fabricland last year. Yeck, the print is off-grain. I am glad this is only an apron, so not a biggie, but I would be annoyed if this was a dress. I will use the excess for a couple of kitchen towels. Pics tomorrow.
