Dog Tired, Show Time

'Fibre Art from the Heart' is the name I chose for my first gallery show at the Greenwood Quiltery Gallery in Guelph, Ontario. The show runs from April 3rd to April 30th. I will be in attendance on the 4th from 2pm. to 4 pm. I was inspired by the work and words of Lesley Riley for the title of my show. Above is pictured one of the blocks from my auction quilt, Intuitive Hearts. I have started a smaller version especially for the show, I am now working on the embellishments using embroidery and beads. I also hope to finish a couple of felted pieces for the show.
I had a very enjoyable evening last night with the executive of the Oakville Stitchery Guild. I am the Program coordinator for the group and will be that and vice president next year. I treasure the people I work with at the Guild. I am constantly inspired to create. We will have Susan Strachan Johnson as our guest speaker on March 23rd. I first met Susan at the Elora School of Art when we were both beginning fibre artists. We were taking a week long class with Penny Berens who is an exceptional teacher. Susan has found her style in fibre art and her work is intriguing. Go to
to see Susan's art work.

Here is sleeping Oatie, when he is at his best! I am dog tired, getting up at 4 am. to let him out and then he wants to play for about two hours! Today I got to sleep mid morning to catch up on some needed zzzzz's. Oatie has learned so much in only 11 days, like going up and down stairs, going outside most times, and coming when called. He seems to be very smart and trainable, he is certainly training the whole family.

Here he is sitting on his daddy's lap. I now know why puppies are so cute. Would we run after them if they weren't? Until next week, happy stitching!

Hello there. Did you enter the link correctly? It doesn't seem to work.
I love your little puppy. They are so cute when they are young but so much work.

what a cute little puppy - it is a wonderful time, having a puppy - but without making art at all

Good luck with your show - your Intuitive Hearts piece was so lovely. Congratulations on the vice presidency, your Guild members obviously appreciate you as well. Oatie is still so cute - do keep the photos coming.
