I got my "official" letter from TNNA today. I have been approved for teaching the two new canvases at the 2011 TNNA in Long Beach, CA: Bird & Worm from Zecca, and Harvest Fairy from Melissa Shirley Designs. Time to go into warp-drive-stitching! As soon as their photos are posted on the TNNA website, or once Melissa Shirley mentions her new artist, I will be able to mention these canvases with photos. Until then... Mum's the word!
Instead, in my life, there has been Kitten Drama. For all of you new kitten owners: please heed my experience and avoid the consequences. We found a new kitten. We've named him Bailey. We didn't supervise him and he jumped down from too high. He now has a fractured elbow. Bailey is in a body cast/leg cast. We now feed him, give him water, assist him for the bathroom. Pitiful. Pitiful.
So now I have a new stitching buddy. He's kind of a "captured" audience.... body cast and all. He like my arm gestures and the occasional dangling thread.
Here's a photo of Bailey before his mishap. We named him after Bailey's Irish Cream. We call him Bailey's Wild Irish Kitten.
Well, back to caring for this sweet bundle of kitten; then some stitching when he is sleeping. Thanks, Robin
