#opusdailypractice – days 12, 13, 14, and 15

I’m a little bit behind on blogging about my Opus Daily Practice, so I thought I would do one multi day post instead. Day 12 – The theme was forest. I managed to finish off a painting based on a forest area in Kootenay National Park. I also worked away on a naturally dyed ear […]

Opus Daily Practice – day 11

#opusdailypracticeOpus Daily Practice, day 11. A quick 5 minute sketch from a parking lot in Canmore, Alberta, Canada, and some road knitting. Sometimes life is busy and you have to sneak creative practices in.

More Finger Puppets

Tonight it is another super quick blog post as I am finishing off the last of the “have to’s” on my knitting list. The last few months all I seem to do is knit , knit , knit, dye more yarn and repeat. It also explains the lack of blogging (well that and endless weeks of preserving and jelly making). The fact that I have a shipment of 25 pounds worth of Canadian wool on its way tells you just how much knitting has been going on….of course I haven’t quite figured out where I will store it once it arrives, but I will figure it out.

Tonight I am finishing off more finger puppets. This time simplistic childlike airplanes. Perfect for popping on your finger, acting out aerobatics and making zooming noises. This first batch is a special request, but I will eventually have a few online at www.handmade-canada.com .

As of tomorrow I can start rebuilding stock for the shop online. Currently it is pretty wiped out with stock going into boutiques and galleries in Alberta and British Columbia. I have lots of new ideas that I am looking forward to trying including expanding the wearables section of the items I make. It’s a good thing I have a huge shipment of wool coming my way!

Painting, Knitting, Busy, Busy

Just a quick post today to get the blog back on track.

The last little while has been incredibly busy with knit items being made, packaged and delivered to galleries an boutiques. Tonight is another super busy one. A great opportunity for both art and handmades popped up out on the coast, so this evening is filled with painting and knitting.

Photo 2015-11-19 9 09 28 PMThe paintings are near miniature in size while the knitting is a broad range of the items I create for Handmade in Canada. One painting left to create this evening and finger puppets to knit and I will be in good shape. The finger puppets are purely adorable; Finger Fairies and Finger Gnomes just perfect for a Christmas stocking.
