Oh, man, where did summer go?

Well, at least the summer has been nice this weekend. We went to the Queen west art crawl and hung out at 2 different art fairs.

I actually set up my studio this weekend! The walls are painted and I just have to paint one more set of shelves and it will be done. Yay! finally! It's about half of the basement -- so it's about 12 feet by 25 feet. It was a kitchen so it has a sink and an exhaust fan -- and some cupboards. I'll take some pictures when I have the final shelves done. Right now, it's just piled with boxes -- on the high and dry side of the room!

I made a piece of house art for Sandee's book. She plans to join them all together, accordian style and set them up on a table or shelf. I like the front side (top pic)better than the back. The back is a bit busy, Oh well.... she said that she likes rusty bits! It's very sturdy -- 2 pieces of watercolour paper sewn together.

Those pages are lovely! Summer went by slow for me. I said hello to Ruth and Maija for you. Wish you could have been there with us! Can't wait for Niagara next year!
