It was a very busy week. I hope to tell you more about the workshops I taught, but for today I just want to lie out on the lawn with this pillow for my head. I found it at a vintage consignment store in Nanaimo. I was charmed by the tidy, careful stitches worked on thin cotton - I don't even mind that the stamped pattern shows around the edges.
I'm an artist who has been making stuff for 30 years. I used to spin, knit, weave, quilt, design, write, embroider and garden, and I still do most of these things, but for the last few years I have been focused on stitching images from Canada's first natural history, the Codex Canadensis.
I try to live a life of minimal consumption and maximum creation. More and more, I see how these are connected.
