The question of the week... Should I clean up my studio for pictures that I post on Saturday? Or should I just leave it messy like it usually is :-)

Sunday Evening

It is Sunday evening at the end of September. Winter is not anywhere near, which is unusual but welcome. We have not had frost yet, but the evenings are getting cooler. I went for a walk today in search of wild roses. I have been photographing Alberta Wild Roses each month to document their changes. I noticed today that although there has been no frost, the rose haws have started to turn a transparent red and have begun wrinkling up like their grape/raisin kin. They must be kin or they wouldn't have this similarity. I wonder if anyone has tried to make Rose Haw wine? It would have a pungent autumn taste I think and a lovely burgundy rose colour. I'll have to see what I can find for recipes on the net...

Summer is Still Here!

Back from two months of holidays and fence building. Not a lot of studio time (read none), but lots of time out for thinking and idea gathering. I'm off to a FAN (Fibre Art Network) quilt retreat at the end of October, so I will be busy preparing for this as well as working on my first quilt series.

For the retreat, I have to make a mask for the mask challenge, some art trading cards and create some kind of Halloween costume.

For the series, I need to create 10 to 15 quilts with a similar theme by January, so that I can start sending out packages to galleries.

I'm looking forward to both!

Keep you posted.
