Nick at the Queen West Art Crawl

queen-west-art-crawl-trinity-bellwoods-park-2014

Being unable to walk right now *, something going on in the city this past weekend really had me wishing I could get out there – it was the annual Queen West Art Crawl, held in one of my favourite places, Trinity Bellwoods Park.

On Sunday, while having breakfast, after I noted that the weather was perfect for the art show, and after hearing me lament that the rainy Saturday the day before would not have been good for the artists in the park, Nick looked at me and asked, ‘Are you trying to tell me something? Do you want me to go to the art show and take some pictures for you?’. My response, ‘Yes I would!’.

So off he went, looking cool in his denim vest, an old jean jacket gotten in Glasgow with the sleeves cut off, and the hat we got at Goorin’s while out on this date.

[* I had a foot operation a few weeks ago so can’t walk much, but it’s getting better.]

Here are the pictures of the Art Crawl that Nick took …

He brought home a ‘grab-bag’ … that’s what he called it, as he handed me a tantalizingly stuffed tote-bag. Seeing the surprises that were inside was fun, sort of like looking in a stocking at Christmas.

These are pictures I took of what was in the bag …

One of the patches is for him and on Monday morning I came downstairs to find this patch, like this, all ready to be sewn onto Nick’s vest. I’m going to do it today.

As for my Yarncore patch, I might make a bag using some thick black cotton I have and sew it on the front, or I might put it in a frame. I will be sure to show you what I end up doing!
