beautiful applique pieces by Karen Gelardi - the knitted piece is from her new factories series. I am preparing for my trip to Montreal - john and the kids are staying behind - so the shop and business will continue as usual - next week I will do a post on my trip. I was calculating in my head on my last trip to Montreal and it was 13 years ago. I lived there for a summer and for a year following the summer. I had a job working for artist Catherine Widgery. The image above was the major piece that I worked on - check out her website for her prolific body of work.
