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 :)
