Heart to Hand - June & July 2014

At the end of this month, I will be taking new pieces in to Handmade House on Broadway as feature artist during the months of June and July in Saskatoon.  For this exhibit, I really want to get up close and personal with the prairie, and stitch as beautifully as I can.  I'll still have some vistas available in threadpaintings... but I'm so inspired by the ever growing stash of yarns in my studio.  I have chose the name "Heart to Hand" for show.  It's a phrase I use in my hand embroidery classes when I explain how to measure a length of embroidery thread.  Margot taught me that - the thread need not be longer than your reach.  Heart to Hand - it also speaks to what I stitch.  From my heart - the love for the prairie, stitched out by hand.  For the remainder of this month I'm working on glimpses of what I love... and thoroughly enjoying it.  : )

I'm working on a series of 'Spring Ground', similar to the pieces I made last spring for my Winnipeg exhibit.  Once things get greener, I'll have some summer flora fibre art as well.

Spring Ground #3, 2014

And so I stitch, and I stitch, and I stitch. 

I hope you all had a lovely mother's day.  : )
