I just got home from a long but lovely craft-filled weekend in halifax. There are long stories of reckless wildlife and treacherous weather to be told but I'll get to that another time. For now I'd like to show off my finished new pattern. It was a tricky one to figure out as it's a shifting repeat but I'm quite pleased with the end result and may have shed a small tear when I had to start cutting it up into pillow pieces.

I've just started printing my first new repeating pattern in what feels like ages. It has been so long that nearly forgot how exciting the process is.

see you there!

I've been looking up for inspiration these days. I keep running into patterns everywhere and they're starting to creep back into my work.

We live in a wonderful old Fire-Hall complete with patterned tin ceilings in every room of our apartment. This is the view from the kitchen. I just love the way the light hits the pattern.

Unfortunately it's the end of another skating season. I've been trying my hardest to make it out a few times a week for the local noon skate at the Lunenburg Arena. I'm going to miss spending time in this wonderful spot, I've never seen such a beautifully crafted arena. Word on the ice is that the wooden roof was brought in by train from BC when it was built, a long time ago.
