Abby's Dress

NS Fibre Arts Festival

I am going to be selling rugs at the NS Fibre Arts Festival in Amherst on Oct. 12th, 2012. If you are into knitting, quilting, HOOKING, this is something you really shouldn't miss!! Lots of very fun workshops, and demonstrations...and ME!

A sketch for "I'd Rather Read Than Iron"

High Kicker

This is another rug that I miss..again, the colours really came together and I feel so happy with this little dancer. She was sold at Visual Voice Fine Art in Truro.


I was looking through some old photos of my rugs for a possible project and I came across this guy. He was sold at the NS Folk Art Festival a couple of years ago. I am proud of all the rugs I create but this guy...this rooster was so special. The colours really worked and ..sounds weird to say but I miss him.

Rug Supply

I am running low on rugs for sale. This makes me happy..and it also makes me feel a little behind. I just gave three to Gallery 215..and I want to photograph a bunch for a possible project...and I have the NS Fibre Arts Festival Show coming up...and NSDCC show is in November. Yup, I am stressing out.

Five Ballerinas

Working Hard

I have an idea for a project which is very exciting..but scary as I am going into unfamiliar territory. I need a team for it..and a clear idea of where I want it to go. I have to use my braveness....

Five the making

I was busy working on these lovely ballerinas this morning. The colours are working and life is good!

A new batch of sari-ribbon arrived today!

Yes! ....and so I have spent the better part of the morning separating the ribbon and putting it in colour groups and drew a ballerina pic onto burlap as well. With all these yummy colours..these girls are going to have the best looking tutus around!

This is hot off the hoop..and it is raining today, very appropriate.

Steamy wool..and dirty dishes

Hot wool cooling in one sink..and dirty dishes waiting to be washed in the other. ...rather dye wool any day of the week!

Fall on your knees..with a new hairdo!

Ah..much better...her hair matches her dress now. (ha!)

The beginnings of "Fall on your Knees"

I had to take care of food and laundry today, but did have a chance to draw a new picture on burlap and work on the colour planning for "Fall on your Knees". ..excited about this one..well, who am I kidding..I get excited about all of them! Stay tuned for the final result.

Nice Day to Walk your Rooster

I finished this this morning and it is a very rainy day here in Truro. I think this girl is going to have to put her rooster in a little boat..or at least have it wear a life jacket.

Nice day to Walk your progress

 I was working on this full tilt today. ..and I like where it is going! It is similar to "Walking your Fish" rug I did a few months ago that sold at the Folk Art Festival.
  Kids are back in school today, it is very quiet in the house. I was happy to have some quiet time to hook but I dunno, it's going to take me awhile to get use to this.
