Two Show Openings Saturday 18th, Two Provinces

Connection Fibre Artists show Re:Fashion
is moving from Wellington County Museum
Bruce County Museum and Cultural Centre
33 Victoria Street N, Southampton, Ontario
if you are anywhere in the vicinity on Saturday
do pop in and explore
the amazing work of this group of talented people.
I am one of them....
....and I'm sorry I can't be there....
....because it is a great show.

I will be in Nova Scotia's beautiful Bear River 
at the Sissiboo Coffee Roaster for the opening of
a show I share with my friend Diane.
Do drop in
we both love to chat and share our explorations with you.

Thank you Erin for all your help
You were amazing!
And a huge thank you to our two husbands
Richard and Harold
who are always so supportive of our endeavours.

Diane had the forethought to bring along iron and ironing board.

So why the title Wednesdays
Since 2008 Diane and I have been meeting....yes
on Wednesdays!
Everyone knows we are unavailable
on Wednesdays!

 Both of us find our inspiration in nature
and are always happy to explore our environment
for local materials and inspiration.

One corner of the show is dedicated to a few
of our explorations

We even found space for a few of the stone pathways to hang
Handy Hubby and I both forgot to take the actual stones
that we usually displayed with them.
Getting old!

I like these two together
Diane's on the left

Hanging a show always does me in
but after four hours of work
it is worth it
textiles always make a place warm and inviting
especially in a cold Canadian winter!

See you Saturday

Happy New Year!

A rainbow and it's shadow closed out the year
in our neck of the woods.

I wish for you my favourite Celtic Blessing
for the start of this new decade

May your past be a pleasant memory
Your future filled with delight and mystery
Your now a glorious moment
that fills your life with deep contentment

ay your day be filled with blessings
Like the sun that lights the sky
And may you always have the courage
To spread your wings and fly.

And I'm sure the Rusty Pups would join me
in wishing you the best year ever.

I'm sure they would if a tasty treat was placed under their noses!

 My holiday stitching has been very simple
just adding lines of stitches to a favourite piece
of plant dyed linen.

The story is forming and I think it wants to be called
Stay Awhile

Have a great day!
