I let it rest a day and then my s-i-l and I put it on a stretcher frame (he has such strong hands ... thx Kevin !) ... he pulled & I stapled, on Friday. It had been a very hectic day, with many other things demanding our time but we finally got together and got 'r done at dinner time.
I have submitted it on-line and will not know until mid-Sept. whether it is accepted or not ... the show itself runs the month of October.
WINTER STREAM is from my own photograph taken in February of 2014 in rural Wellington County, Ontario, Canada. Being longer than most pieces I work on, I found this piece to be quite a challenge - having to roll it up every time I put it under the needle - so, quite a physical project ! Time for a machine with a longer arm ?
