As of today, I have three pieces hanging in Archipelago in Rockland, Maine. http://www.thearchipelago.net//, for the entire month of June. If these sell, perhaps I will be invited back!!
One of my newest, measuring 16" x 24", entitled Lupine Memories. This started with a used drop cloth, added more paint, some stamping, raw edge applique and finally, I placed a yellow sheer over the top and free motion stitched.
As a general rule in Maine, if you have your garden in by June 1st, you are good to go. I just finished my last row and it looks like rain. Perfect timing.
My bluebird house was inhabited by tree swallows this year and while I am not unhappy to have them - they are very pretty, let me get fairly close to admire them and they eat mosquitoes...the birdhouse was for my bluebirds! Purchased another birdhouse and amazingly they came. Mr and Mrs Bluebird are busy at this moment building their nest!
My sheep were sheared about three weeks ago and I have about thirty pounds of fleece to process. I need a clone!
