I wasn’t familiar with Twist, but now that you’ve sent that I think I will try to make it! Not as a vendor, but as a tourist, sounds fantastic!!
Sneak Peek of New Pattern – The Leslie TopBy
<><><><><><><><><> Showtime this weekend! <><><><><><><><><>
We’d love to meet you! The Blue Brick will have a booth at ‘Art in the Vineyard’, a free event being held by
Frogpond Farm Organic Winery this coming Saturday and Sunday.
Frogpond Farm is located at 1385 Larkin Rd. L0s 1J0, Niagara-on-the-Lake, and the show will be one from 11am to 5pm both days. If you’re free this weekend and you live in Southern Ontario, take a drive out to drink some fabulous wine, enjoy the country
and, of course, see us and a host of other amazing artists.
We’ll have all kinds of goodies, including jewelry, accessories, shawl pins, sterling silver pieces
and printed copies of Resin Jewelry, 2nd Edition for sale!
<><><><><><><><><> Update on Me vs. Elastoform <><><><><><><><><>
There is no update, sadly. They continue to use my photography and ignore my emails. I am continuing to email them and share my story, along with the other artists. They have an Etsy site, and I found a Facebook page, so I will be contacting them through that avenue as well. Fingers crossed!
I’ve really had the design bug lately, and my latest is finally starting to take form! As soon as I saw Tanis Fiber Arts’ new colours, Graphite and Saffron, I knew they had to appear together in a garment, and so the ‘Leslie’ top was born.
These are only sneak peeks right now because the design is not ready yet. I need to rip back the front to where my neckline shaping begins because it’s slightly off-centre and I’ve had to tweak my charts. On the whole though, once it’s ready I believe it will be a very fast, comfortable knit with no complicated shaping or techniques.
Stockinette in the round rocks. Is there anything so fast and mindless? I loved working the middle of this shirt, as silly as it sounds.
Can’t wait to finish this up and get shooting. On a slightly unrelated note, I have finally acquired a mannequin and I’m dying to take pictures of her :)
I am so bummed the Frogpond Farm Organic Winery is so far away from my place :( I really can’t squeeze in an 8 hour drive this weekend, but I definitely would have loved to drop by! Do you sometimes attend other fiber festivals ? (like maybe Twist Festival, in St-Andre-Avellin, PQ http://www.festivaltwist.org/en/)
