Sparrow Avenue at Makeology Spring 17

Museum of Steam and Technology, Hamilton, Ontario
Hope everyone had a beautiful long weekend with friends and/or family. The weather eventually co-operated, didn't it?

I was at the Makeology show held at the Museum of Steam and Technology in Hamilton. Despite the weather which was raining and not all that warm, there was a line up that began even before I had arrived to set up. Totally impressive! By the time the doors were open, there was quite a crowd.

This picture was taken in the late afternoon when the sun had come out but the crowds had thinned considerably. The Makeology show was divided into 3 of the Museum's buildings. This building is known as "Building 1913". My table is on the extreme left (half-way up the picture)

This picture show some of my new work. I am especially happy with the way the "Canada 150" linen tea towel turned out. This linen is different from the usual Natural Linen that I use but it is 100% linen and is from Russia. I'm also happy to say that I sold out of these within the first hour. Having said that, I kick myself for not having the confidence to make more...next time. (What do they say about hind sight...lol)

The first picture at the top of this post is of a Steam Roller from the 1920's. It is easy to see where "Steam Punk" derives its influence. Here is another image of this machine:
