Some of the craziness has ended!

So I've finished my two summer shows. It never really seems like it's going to be that much work, but after 10 hours of sitting in a tent smiling and chatting with strangers it can be quite exhausting. I love doing it, don't get me wrong, but I always seem to need a few days afterwards to re-coop. Especially after lugging all my stuff back up 3 flights... next apartment will definitely be ground floor!

The best part about doing shows, is trading. I have collected some really awesome works of art in the last two years, so much that I really have no wall space left. But I keep wanting more! This weekend I met Earl Beadle, he had the coolest booth I think I've ever seen, complete with dangling wooden squirrels and mannequin hands protruding from logs. It was completely inspiring and I absolutely loved everything in his booth. Lucky for me he liked my stuff too :) So here is my new piece, I love it and can't wait to hang it!

Now I get to settle in for a summer of sewing. I have two shows in September and the One of a Kind in November. Lots of stuff to make but if I keep my head down and work hard I think I'll make it. That is of course after this week, since I'll be in Ottawa for Bluesfest :)
