As you know if you follow my blog, I am on my digital journey of 2016! I am digitizing my cute Alphabet Animals in an earnest attempt to become a supplier of digital appliqué by 2017! Last time I posted I digitized 4-5 animals. I am now just 6 animals shy of the 26 animals I need for my first digital release. Lots of learning! Another activity, I have been injecting in my self-designed digital school, has been sewing out other successful digitizer’s appliqué. That was so helpful! I learned so much just seeing their product and watching their art sew out. I have been playing with stabilizers – what a difference they can make! OMG! The pix below are evidence of sewing and sewing and sewing!

New Stamp!

I have included two popular Canadian Lighthouses on the new Labrador/Newfoundland ProvinceStamp™. Pictured are Point Amour Lighthouse in Labrador and Cape Spear in Newfoundland. As an artist it is always a challenge to represent a state or province or territory in a 6″ x 7″ panel. In Canada these two areas are often paired. I took one  popular lighthouses from each area and combined them in one stamp. Obviously this is not reality – but artistic license lets me make this two huge locations in Canada live in one little 6″ x 7″ stamp!
