Weekly Photo Challenge – Twisted

As a yarn maker we go throw many steps before the wool is ready to be used!!! I started with raw fibre I source out as local as possible, wash and dry, then I use my drum carder to create batts to begin the spinning process, create a skein and then wash again. Once theContinue reading “Weekly Photo Challenge – Twisted”

Weekly Photo Challenge – A Place in The World

I love living on Cortes Island B.C. Canada… it’s A (The) Place in The World where I belong!!! With all its natural beauty, forests, lakes, ocean beaches and shores – as well as an amazing community that has always made me feel welcome – I really cannot think of a better place to call home.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Unlikely

One of the things I most appreciated during my visit to Costa Rica is the “farm to table” experience at La Carolina Lodge while on the Six Petals Rainforest Retreat. This resonated with me since I am a farmer on the West Coast of B.C. and base my diet mainly on what I grow inContinue reading “Weekly Photo Challenge – Unlikely”

Spring is in full bloom on our beautiful little island, and all around the garden Lines are popping up everywhere.

Weekly Photo Challenge – a Face in the Crowd

There is a theory that says every snowflake is different – not as if we could ever compare every snowflakes to each other… The same can be said about every Face in the Crowd – each unique even though it is said we all have doppelgangers out there! Snowflakes float through the air individually, eachContinue reading “Weekly Photo Challenge – a Face in the Crowd”

Weekly Photo Challenge – Sweet

As many people around the world know, Canada produces some Sweet maple syrup… a lot of Sweet maple syrup! But what fewer people may know is that Canada has only become the world’s top producer since the 1930’s (before that it was the US). And today, Canada produces more than 80 percent of the world’sContinue reading “Weekly Photo Challenge – Sweet”

Weekly Photo Challenge – Variations on a Theme

It’s official: I have taken to a new medium of creating art!!! It’s been a slow process but I am making strides forward with the help of the few friends who are kind enough to patiently guide me along the way.
