It feels like I have been away a long time. Back home now in the studio and ready for an update. But first, here is a beautiful shot of my older son, Colin, doing what he loves the most. This was taken on the St. Lawrence River at dawn last week.
I was in Toronto to see the Chagall exhibit (amazing), hear the Tallis Scholars (also amazing) and connect with old friends. I also managed to get some new leather–but that is for a surprise which will have to wait until post Christmas. Today I have been back at the machines filling orders for Bird in a Hurry totes. Here are a couple that are complete.
The apple green paint is actually a good match for the leather–not sure why the photo makes it look yellowish. At left is the interior zipper pocket.
Below is a second tote–this one ordered as a diaper bag! Tucked in the pocket is a matching pouch which clips inside, so the new mom will have everything she needs in one place.
The totes look really great! Love the colours. Sounds like you had a busy week, but lots of fun. I missed your blog, 🙂
glad to hear you enjoyed the Chagall show. Definitely some lovely pieces on display.
I was there two weekends ago, and left feeling a bit disappointed that there wasn’t more of his own work. Usually when I have gone to exhibits featuring a particular artist, I feel spent by the time I reach the last painting…..but this time I was expecting (and wanting) another room or two – especially of the brightly coloured pieces.
P.S. v. cool shot of Colin 🙂
I did think Chagall’s significant pieces were there and that doesn’t always happen. But what I was wowed with was the film! How amazing to have all that footage. I didn’t see the whole thing–if I lived closer I would definitely be back just for that.
And yes, his colours are incredible.
Am just getting back to hooking–but still have some orders and some gifts before I can settle in to it. Over xmas I will post how far along I am. Your rug looks amazing!
Thanks MOM and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Today you are double my age, and I’m the age you were when I was born!
Enjoy your day and see you tomorrow!!!!
