hi there
I hope you had a lovely weekend.
our weekend started with a craft show and ended with a craft show.  I am coming to the realization, that it's physically demanding and even though when you're doing it, it's fun, but the take-down and set- up is hard. I fantasize of having a crew like bands do and they do everything and you show up and do your performance and they take care of everything when you're done.  yesterday at the pedestrian sunday in kensington it was so vibrant and fun and it made me feel so lucky to live so close to this amazing part of the city.  I busted my butt on saturday and stayed up till almost 4 am (crazy) to get ahead and it paid off, I won't be so behind today. I tell you, I have to re access what I do to make it sustainable and long lasting so I don't get burnt out.

this most recent commission j finished is this beautiful long narrow bench for sam james coffee is a real stunner.  I had a bit of difficulty photographing it because it was so large, I hope to take photos of it in situ. but these photos do give you a bit of a reference to the structure and details.  a third leg structure was added in the centre for extra strength.  I don't know if you can tell in the photos but it has a slight curve and it's not completely straight.

I will be busy this week getting things ready before we head to the cottage so I wish you a great start to your week!!

  2. I'm more tired after a day at a craft fair than from all the sewing and preparation of the weeks before. Make sure to rest a bit, or you'll only postpone the downfall.

    The bench is so, so beautiful!!

  4. You made that? That's amazing! I love how the wood splits and bends. Very sculptural. :)
