After a well-deserved day off yesterday during with I re-acquainted myself with my camera at the Windscape Kite Festival in Swift Current (you can read about it here) I started the morning by getting the display space ready for hanging the work tomorrow.
No sooner did I have the table cloths in place when my friend Susan arrived to drop off her work. We had not seen each other for a while so the afternoon was spent catching up. We talked about Quilt Canada and what we both had been up to over the past few weeks. Susan had great details about her holiday in Nova Scotia, one of my favorite places!
By the time the afternoon drew to a close the tables had begun to full up with boxes and bins. Tomorrow the last of the work will arrive by car from Saskatoon. Ten students from Saskatoon will make up half the exhibition this year. I can’t wait to see what arrives. This time tomorrow night I will have the studio close to ready for the exhibition and my oven will be working overtime as I begin to bake the various goodies for visitors. Check back in a couple of days – I plan to post some images of the hanging of the art work.
The rest of our Sunday was utilized well. Colin grabbed every opportunity between rain showers and downpours trying to complete his special projects in the yard. And I actually spent some time with this month’s CDAs (Creative Daily Acts). When Elinor suggested the theme “Singing in the Rain” back at the end of December I wasn’t sure if it would be appropriate… but Elinor must have had a direct line to the weather man. “Rain” sums up this month very well. I am working with a limited color palette and script. Only a little over a week and I will have created 182 CDAs, half a year’s worth of small Artlets. It hasn’t been easy, especially this month with travel and nearly no time to myself. However, I caught up and am on track for June. I am beginning to regain control over my schedule and detect a slight feeling of accomplishment.
