Join the Thread

Here are some of the pieces in the Join the Thread exhibit in Weyburn. You really need to see these in person. My photos do not do them justice!

Internet out

Our local Wi Fi is down. I’m using my iPhone to connect. Could be short posts till it’s fixed in the next couple of days. 😕. Hope everyone is having a better day than we are!  We are having windy and rainy weather.

Tackle it Tuesday

WIP-RS-11I did not get anything done on Ripening Saskatoons on the weekend.  So today is the day!   It’s already pressed, blocked, and cooling!  Hubby is off work today so we will work around the house today.  I’ll try and hem Ripening Saskatoons in-between times, but am not too worried as I can take it to Crafting tomorrow and do it.  More important is to sew a hanging sleeve to attach to it when finished.

What I did get done was I took a trip to Weyburn, SK yesterday to see the Join the Thread exhibit, the Fibre Art Network exhibit, and Jaynie Himsl’s exhibit at the Credit Union.  All part of Fibre Arts Destination 2015, and very worthy exhibits to see!   Lots of beautiful work!  Very inspirational.

My only regret is I wish we had more time to visit some of the local businesses to see what’s hanging on their walls.   Ah well.  Maybe we’ll get down again sometime before the end of August.


Works by me, myself, and I…Jean Ottosen…for “Join the Thread”.


“The Surveyor’s Nightmare” by Jaynie Himsl. Part of the Weyburn Fibre Arts Festival this summer. This is hanging in the local Credit Union folks!

Saturday Review

WIP-RS-11Hi all!  Well I finished hooking Ripening Saskatoons.  Made a few small changes, but it’s done now.  Will spend time blocking and hemming it this weekend as Hubby is working.  Might even sew the hanging sleeve on by the end of the weekend. :)

Baby-SetAlso finished off the baby hat to go with the baby sweater.  The pompom is not as full as I’d like it, but I ran out of yarn for it.  This little project used up a lot of my hand dyed cochineal yarn, as well as some hand spun.  Best of all, it inspired another spinner and knitter to make one as well. :)

This week was punctuated with company that resulted in some inspiring trips to an art gallery and two museums.   I am going to spend some time with my sketchbook and playing around to see if I can come up with some new designs.

My next hooking projects will be poppies for a while.  Small ones to start.  Then a couple medium sized ones…just in case anyone gets a hankering for larger poppies. :)  I want to prepare for the Traditions exhibit in November.

Finish it up Friday!

WIP "Ripening Saskatoons"

WIP “Ripening Saskatoons”

Well folks.  It’s time to finish up a couple of projects.  I have the background on Ripening Saskatoons to do today, as well as the pompom for the baby hat.  I’m running late already.  In-between that I will be sorting papers in my sewing room.  Time to deal with some stuff rather than shut the door on it! :)

Hope everyone has a great day! :)
