I'm all done my portrait. I'm sorry about the dim photo, it is night and that's the best we could do.... In real life this rug sparkles like a diamond, I don't know how or why.
I'll take a daylight photo of all the rugs tomorrow so I have a record of them.
Back to being done:
When I say I'm done that means I won't ever touch it again to fix anything.
When I'm done I'm really done.
Like for instance if Birdee decides to be a rug ripper and pulls all my teef out, I'd have to say I was in a bar room brawl just before the photo was taken.
Or if a rat chews my hat I'll just have to cut a hole in my hat.
If a flood stains one whole half of my face I'll say I had a birthmark then.
If I never see it again I'll say... what rug?
Do you want to see this rug and many other marvy rugs in person?
Maybe you could go to the exhibit.
Exhibit Title: Mary Anne Wise & Friends: the art of the hooked rug.
Dates: Sept 23 - Nov 18, 2011
Location: The Anderson Center, Red Wing, MN. www.andersoncenter.org
Hook-in: Sept 23, 1 - 5:30 (dinner available on site for $10. Reservations to Mary Logue: firstname.lastname@example.org)
I hope there will be a youtube video and I'll let you know when I find out.
I'm very happy to say ( singing the theme to Rocky ) that I am all done my rugs for this show on the date I aimed for.
This Peace by Water weighs 4.5 lbs.
All that remains is the packing up and the posting to take place tomorrow. Man and I did a little dumpster diving and we were graced with the perfect box.
I wonder how much the shipping will be? I bet between $60 and $100
I must be crazy.
It also appears I might be deranged by looking at my studio.
Here is hooker's little helper Birdee... she was so devoted during the great hookathon of August 2011, she spent every minute I was in the studio with me.... or was she devoted to Heaven's to Betsy Wool and that lovely basket Joanne gave me ? Hard to tell....
May you sleep as peacefully as she.
