Thursday transitions

Sorry about that blank spot last Tuesday.  It has been the result of some mind boggling lacks!  ;~)

I have neglected my mixed media art in favour of sewing.  Not terrible but I miss it.

How to keep all the ducks lined up, the balls in the air and then actually stay on my feet is challenging.

Too many choices paralyzes me so in keeping with the KISS principle...

I worked on a summer canvas for the front room to keep the monthly wall hanging angst quieted. (The May baskets and June bunnies will become baby quilts.)   Tons of fun!  I'm not sure it is finished but it can hang on the wall while I decide.


The worktable Wednesday post didn't happen because I was ignoring the fabric as I reconsider what I want to make for the next wall hanging.  How can I make a traditional quilted wall hanging with kites portrayed in a representational artistic way?  I do have an idea to pursue.   I do think the focus for The Needle and Thread Network was meant to be be more fibre art focused.  As this is also the direction that I want to head into I have been considering my options.  And I think I have just had a very exciting IDEA drop into my lap via blog roll reading!  YES!!!

Sorry to tease but I need to try it.

And then the shearer has phoned to say he is on his way.  Our farm is also in transition and possibly this will be our last shearing so I need to go grab the grand kiddies so they can add this experience to their list of farm memories.

And in the mean time the dill is still taking over the flower beds!   :O

Your summer canvas is beautiful! And great shots of your garden, Bernina and sheep. I shudder to think of the sheep fate if this is their last of shearing.

I love your wall hanging - would gladly and proudly hang it on my wall! I hope that all your transitions bring good things!

I absolutely love your mixed media piece. The colours are incredible. I'd say the word "transition" is a big one for you, right now. I think you're headed in the right direction.
