|From one breed of sheep - wowzers!|
|It's happening - there's the tooth!!!!!|
|Isn't she the most beautiful sheep you have ever seen?|
I had a birthday this month and as a treat to myself I took a basket weaving workshop with Kathryn Dice offered by the Qualicum Weavers' Guild - it was wonderful. It was held in the Guild's meeting place which is an old train station - very charming and welcoming. Thank you so much for opening up the class - it was great. Of course I wanted to make a hat.............
|lovely, lovely cedar|
|Apparently the 'p' fell off of the sign at one point, so we had a good laugh about that! Sinning spinners....there is a certain decadence about spinning I have to admit....|
Valentine's Day brought about this wonderful heartfelt day of spinning at Providence Farm on Tzouhalem Road in Duncan. The Tzouhalem Weaver's and Spinner's Guild used to meet there many years ago and it is a wonderful place to see if you haven't already. The intention is to have a Spin In every month. The next Spin In is on March 14th. Betty has started a Textile Program there and the participants will use the spun wool and alpaca for weaving, knitting and crocheting. The participants have diverse abilities and will love the process of expression through textiles. I have the pleasure of being a consultant which gives me the chance to be a part of the process - what a gift to have been given. Thank you Betty.
|The spun wool - we had 12 spinners and a lot of wool and alpaca to spin - all wool was grown on the farm.|
