I had to interrupt my "bin packing" when the mailman brought the latest sale listing from Melissa Shirley. She isn't going to be at the Baltimore market (regrettably, neither am I), so is letting everyone know her sale canvases now. Yum, yum! So I start looking and make a tentative list. Just as with dessert, my eyes are bigger than my budget. So, Tuesday I will trim my wish list, though with a little padding to acknowledge that I may not get everything I want. It's just like looking through the Sears, Roebuck catalog when I was young (I'm not saying how many years ago!).
Perhaps by now you can tell why it takes me so long to pack (or unpack) my rug canvases. I spend lots of time talking to them and admiring them--and resting my back that doesn't like THAT angle when I bend over to fold or unfold the canvases. Next week we get to the baby-size canvases (2x3). Until then.
