OK! my latest resolution (and I am making a resolution to make them as required rather than at the end or beginning of the year) will be to post things before they happen rather than after! Last weekend WAS ( sorry about that!) the Extraordinary Art Exhibition and was amazing fun.
It’s great to be one of the FarmWurx crew and there will be more coming from this exciting group of artists, watch this space!
We had a wonderful day on Saturday lots of visitors and a chance to meet and mingle with the other artists as well. Elizabeth turned her home into the beautiful gallery and a good time was had by all!
I have been doing smaller pieces using up some screen prints from a loooong time ago, giving them a new life. The fruit bowls are screen printed by me, painted by Elizabeth, quilted and then turned into cushions by me! a very collaborative process. I love the colours . They are the debut pieces for Pillow Talk! something we plan to do more of in the future.
It was nice to see my work mixed in with potters and painters, a change from the usual quilt shows!
Meanwhile back at the ranch, the renovations continue….
This is the wonderful Jeff ( not his best side!) removing the last of the old fireplace and getting ready for the new. I know it doesn’t look great but progress is being made.Even though the toilet is still in the living room- just to the left of the fireplace ( doesn’t everyone keep it there?)
An exciting feature is the “new” bathroom- all ready and waiting for tiles, they are coming later this week.
One of the things about renovating is finding a place for all the “stuff” to go and I am running out of places! There are piles all over the un-renovated part of the house. Piles of faucets, taps, tiles and all sorts and of course the furniture has to go somewhere. Finding a place to sit at the end of the day has become a challenge!
Sigh…. oh well, it will be wonderful when it’s all done and everything finds it place.
It’s been cold here the last few days but the reward for surviving the cold day is often a gorgeous sunset, this taken from my bedroom window….where I have been hiding when the dust threatens to take over.
Bye for now, Catherine
Thank you for sharing your photos of the exhibition. Really interesting to follow the renovations too.
