I just finished some fabric Christmas Trees for the Art and Craft Sale next weekend.
Fisher Park Community Recreation Centre
Christmas Craft Show & Sale
Saturday, December 6, 2014
9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
I was planning on making some pin dolls but they weren’t working out as I had hoped, so I started playing around with Photoshop and ended up doing another fused applique. It was supposed to be simple and quick and it was until I decided that it needed some hand embroidery.
One of the things I have been busy with these past few months was creating a pattern (and instructions) for my sea horse.
This past week I’ve been preparing for Out of the Box‘s upcoming show “Fibre Fling 2”. It’s not till April but I have to hand in my pieces on Monday. Today I packed 6 dolls in a box, tying them in place with seam binding.
Last weekend I participated in a Christmas Craft Show and Sale at the Fisher Park Community Recreation Centre in Ottawa. I have participated in this show for several years and this was the best one yet. One of the participating artisans was featured on TV just before the event and that brought out lots of new customers to the event.
Two of my friends also participated in the event. Neither of them has a website as yet so I thought I would show some of their work.
Elise Muir of Lady Bird Concrete Products makes bowls, planters, bird baths and leaf-shaped stepping stones. Elise is a member of the Ottawa Artisans Guild.
Valerie Potter of VP Creations in Glass sold her fused dichroic glass jewellery and ornaments, but she also makes stained glass windows and lamps.
Last weekend I visited Kiwi Gardens in Perth, just outside Ottawa. It was their 16th annual show and sale of garden art. About 38 artists displayed their work throughout the gardens. Although there were many wonderful works of art, I am going to share some of the picture I took of the work of just three of the artists.
Artist by Design ‘s Liz Ciesluk does sculptures using recycled objects and pavepol, a fabric hardener.
