Work in Progress Wednesday

I have a good start on my bead journal for December.  I did a similar Christmas tree last December and I love it.  Not typical Christmas colours but this tree is going to be ever so pretty.

Working on an Installation

I am over the moon excited.  I have been booked to do not one but two installations.  My work will be seen at TheMuseum in 2019 for their show Colour.  Pictured above is my yellow splat.  There are over two hundred mini rubber duckies on the splat.  So fun!  I am making a coloured splat for each colour of the rainbow plus white and black.  They will be installed on the floor below paint cans that have different materials coming out of them to represent each colour.

I am so grateful for Laurel at TheMuseum.  I am grateful that she believes me.  I am grateful for this opportunity to think big!

I have to give full credit to my son Jeremy.  He was the one that suggested the rubber duckies.  Does that mean I can blame him for driving the dog nuts too?  Poor Trinity has heard them squeak and now desperately wants one.

Guild Challenge

Our guild is meeting early this month.  Next week!  I really haven't had enough time to let any ideas percolate for our 'sinchie' challenge.  The theme this month is houses.  This is what I have thrown together but I am not loving it.  Hopefully I can come up with a better idea in time for the meeting.  If not, it is not the end of the world.

Work in Progress Wednesday

I think the embellishing is finished on this stocking.  This stocking is for my granddaughter.  I have included a piece of fabric from my Mom and Dad's clothing.  That makes it special to me but probably not to my granddaughter.  She has never met them.  I think it is more important that I include fabric from my husband and myself.  I don't know why I didn't think of that sooner!  I am considering doing that for the back of the stocking which I had intended to do just plain, one fabric.

November Bead Journal

This bead journal I have done in preparation for teaching a beading class next year.  I have worked diligently to have a lot of interesting bead embroidery stitches on this piece. I am calling it finished for now but feel like there is something not quite right about it.  I am unsure what it is so I will set it aside and wait for the answer to come to me.

Do you enjoy the words as much as I do?  I have so much fun finding positive messages to work into these little collages.
