square-a-day update

Day 19, a quick study of Kat Sue the felted cat hailed from Felpa Felt, Mexico. Possibly my favourite square yet!


Day 20, octopus in the distance.


Day 21, contemplating goodbye. Dealing with some difficult things these days, glad to have a way of expressing it.


Day 22, listening. For directions, I guess.


Day 23, not alone. An experiment with freezer paper stenciling, then realize that freezer paper and wax paper are not the same. But I only had wax paper, and don’t know where to get freezer paper. Had mild success on this square piece of canvas, so tried it on a t‑shirt anyway, on a larger scale, but failed miserably :(


Day 24, duck glaring at people taking photos. I admit that I’m one of those people. Inspired by recent trips to city parks and Mo Willem’s pigeon series

  1. Hey Trish, just wanted to say that I’ve been loving the square a day project. I always find your art so engaging, even when it is just you experimenting! I was particular struck by the octopus one this time. Keep up the awesome work.

  2. Hey, Trish! You should be able to find freezer paper at Loblaws (not sure if they still call one of their stores “Real Canadian Superstore” in Toronto or not — they do in Northwestern Ontario and Manitoba — but you should know the stores, the ones that would carry the “President’s Choice branding). Anyway, that is where I buy freezer paper for crafting. In the part of the store where other kitchen papers/aluminum foil/plastic wraps are located. I also think I saw it at Wal Mart. Not positive if you have those, either… been a lot of years since I was last in Toronto :)

  3. thank you so much! yes, there are a loblaws superstore relatively close to where i am, i will definitely go check it out!

  4. also metro carries it the reynolds brand — you get 5 bajillion feet for 6 bucks- i also find it great for stabalizing frabric (t‑shirts especially) for hand embroidery- also cheaper than the products they make specifaclly for that.

  5. oooh! thanks Melissa! great tip! sounds like they sell them in lots of places! must keep an eye out for them.

  6. Thank you for your kitty hommage. This is Wendy from Felpa Felt. I love it and your project. I hope I had the opportunity to meet you in Mexico.

  7. thank you so much for visiting, Wendy! i’m a huge fan of your work! a friend of mine brought me one of your cats (whom i’ve named Kat Sue) from mexico — i so wish i can come to your cat felting workshop one day!

  8. Did you find freezer paper? I’m just east of Toronto, and I’ve looked at “Real Canadian Superstore”, Freshco, Bulk Barn, and Super Wal-Mart! For some odd reason, I’m thinking of going to Canadian Tire next LOL. I’ve seen on some sites that people are finding it at Metro’s in Toronto, so I will try that too.

  9. I checked out a couple small, discount places, but ended up finding it at Metro. I don’t like Metro, but hopefully this roll lasts a LONG time!
