Thank-yous are in Order!

My day has been made -- again!

First, thank you to Monika and her capable editor, Rita, for honouring me as "Featured Blogger" on The Needle and Thread Network's Feature Friday!

As a result, I get to share my needlework story with others -- especially my fellow-Canadians on this same journey -- and to post this button on my page:


I gotta say, it's a beauty, isn't it?  :-)


And next --- thank you again to all my Gentle Readers out there, including the new followers who have arrived in the past week or so.  (You know who you are!)  It's an ego thing, I know, but it warms my heart to know that others are interested in my musings about my work, my art, my family and my life in general here in this wee hamlet.  Bless you all, and have a great weekend!

Finally....if you're in the Lacombe, Alberta area, do stop in to the Annual Lacombe Art Show and Sale at the Lacombe Memorial Centre in the heart of downtown.  My daughter Gina -- a talented photographer -- is displaying her works on stretched canvas in her first Lacombe art show, and I have framed textile pieces there too, all for your viewing enjoyment (okay -- I'd be less than honest if I didn't say I hope someone buys 'em!).  Both her pieces and mine are in the "Gallery" section of the Show, which this year is front-and-centre (!) in the Main Hall.  She and I will be there all day Saturday, taking in some artistic inspiration, enjoying the delicious refreshments, and meeting and greeting viewers and patrons.

I do like your blog header! It sounds like you have nestled into a great spot and can just let the creativity flow. Congratulations.

ALL the best at your show! It's people like YOU who make TN&TN what it is! It's people like Rita Penner who make cool buttons ; )
