did I fill out today for sending off tomorrow.
I've decided to send 'Remember last Summer' to Porirua for the Creative Fibre National exhibition http://www.creativefibre.org.nz/cs/Services.asp?type=30. I have mixed feelings about, not sure if it is good enough from the execution. I'll just give it a try.
And then did I receive an invitation from Riversdale Arts Southland to exhibit at their 40th annual exhibition in July riversdale arts.
I am very surprised by this invitation and I wonder how they discovered me. I feel privileged and I will happily send some work. I am thinking about to send 'Remember last Summer' after the exhibition in Porirua in April. Then I will send 'Spring', which is at the moment in Justimagine Gallery in Russell. The gallery closes in Winter, so I can take the wallhanging out for the exhibition. And of course I am working on some more new things. I am working on a'weedy' wallhanging at the moment, which will show some of our Northland beautiful and very invasive pests, the beauty in the beast. And I want to revamp my 'Seven Sisters' I made for Matariki some years ago.
And last but not least there is another exhibition coming up also in July, the Creative Fibre Northland exhibition. The theme is 'Hundertwasser inspiring ewe'. I like this theme very much, but at the moment I still don't know what to make. It doesn't help that we leave 2nd of June for our yearly 3-month stay in Europe. I guess I have to speed up a bit.
I have lots of experimental things in my mind. I was going to try out how to knit with wire on the knitting machine. Now I am a proud owner of a little floor loom since last Friday, I am so happy about that! It makes me think about weaving again and of course some experimental weaving.
