Getting Closer!



Preparing for a show means much more than making a whole bunch of art. I have:

filled out contracts, signed grant forms, tracked expenses, ordered invitations (three times!), measured, photographed, printed pictures, attached hanging devices and typed out detailed hanging instructions. In the image you see some of the pieces ready for transport to to gallery. I still need to find some cheap bubble wrap for some pieces (you would think I would know where to find that). I am trying to get them ready as I go because all of this takes longer than one thinks and I want to avoid all the last minute rushing around. I do have 2 more pieces laid out and hope to get them well underway today. So far just the first layer is down. I am running low on my favorite finn wool, so I am being cautious with it's use! This first layer is my "filler" Harrisville wool and there will be Finn and other wools on top. I will show when the layout is done!! Oh, I get excited at the prospect of it!

I am procrastiating on my Lark books entry as I cannot decide what to submitt. I know we can submitt 5 images, so I should not have such a tough time. The process is a bit daunting with all the image restrictions, but I know myself well enough that I will regret it if I do not enter! Anyway, to the studio!

Do enter the Lark books for sure! Your work is wonderful and I'm sure you would be chosen without a problem. Last time they tried this book they didn't get enough entries to do the book, so all felters should enter.

Stop procrastinating - choose some pics! Your work HAS to be in that book.

Hi, the cheapest place to get bubble wrap is a moving company. I got a 2 foot high roll of 2 foot wide bubble wrap and I got 4 foot wide bubble wrap. will your catalogue for the show be on line at some point, I would love to see it.

Thanks, Ann.
I will post pictures of the show and am also going to print a small catalogue of images.

Ugggghhh...It's all in the details, isn't it? And, those details seem to take an eternity to complete. I'm glad that you're "getting closer"... You'll need a vacation after all is wrapped up:-)

Please let me know when your catalogue is complete. I'd be interested, too.

Take care,
Dawn

You must submit to Lark books - I've been procrastinating too but like you, I'll be disappointed in myself if I don't get something submitted.

Good luck on your show - that is something I haven't done - YET!!
