The address for Swede Hollow is 615 7th St. E Saint Paul, MN 55106. See map. It is near the intersection of 7th St and Phalen Blvd. There is even a backup location in case of rain.
Hope to see you there.

May 21st

Well, it is the season of Art Fairs. This weekend is Art A Whirl in NE Minneapolis. A lot of artists will be having open studios and showing their work. As part of this there are a couple Art Fairs for those of us that don't have studios. I know, you were really wanting to come see my basement. I'll be at the one at Gustavous Adolphus Lutheran Church at the corner of Johnson St and 27th Ave NE. I hope to see you there.


And just for fun, the blue version of the stitched circles.

Red circles

I did red and blue versions of the circles design also. They were done with a compass and fabric marking pencil so it was easy to get them consistent. Although, orientation issues would be user error. You don’t notice that until you’re all done and standing back and looking at it. But we’ll just pretend that isn’t an issue and I’ll only show you the good parts. I used binder clips to hold them to my cutting mat to make it easier.

The red one has more variation in color but the color is a bit darker so there was more room for shading from light to dark. I think the difference between the front and back is more pronounced also. The back looks like sediment kind of collected in the little poofs. The poofs on this one were pulled out a lot better. The insides of the circles look better than on the green one.

I need a lot more walls to hang things on. My office at work still has some room. I may have to start hanging them there.
