The weather has been nice, so I have been working outside. Yesterday I built this driftwood trellis for honeysuckle to climb up.(And to screen the ugly hydro meter.) There will also be milk thistle and Russian sage in the bed, so there should be lots of yummy flowers for the bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds this summer. There's been a pair of Anna's hummers at the feeder all winter which was quite a thrill.
My amulet workshop is coming up this weekend so I should have more samples to show you in the next few days. And I have been speed hooking the "Home Sweet Dome" mat -- it's almost done!
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.
