Home Sweet Home… Is where I can find all my stuff!
I don’t mind travelling but I’d rather not live out of a suitcase. A post about the events of the weekend is posted on the Artisan blog.
So, I’ve come home to over 600 emails between the two blogs and so… I’m wimping out folks. Gonna clear all but the direct messages and start fresh. If y’all weren’t so damn productive I wouldn’t have to raise the white flag!
My weekend went exceptionally well personally and professionally and I hope all is well in your parts of the world.
A repost from a different November. This little piece of Heaven is on my mind as I’ll be spending a weekend there with my BFF and many other like-minded women. It promises to be three days of new challenges, friendships, learning and nurturing.
I hope your weekend when it comes, will bring you joy.
4 November 2015
I stepped barefoot onto my balcony in the chill November dawn
And was struck by the incredible beauty of autumn on the river
The newborn light on the horizon bathed the world in every hue
Of mauves, violets and amethyst; a gift of my favourite colours
Reflecting it in the polished pewter, mirror smooth water’s surface
Shadows of evergreens were a study in charcoal, smudged along the shore
The denuded oak and maple trees looked like black lace on violet silk
They reached their slender branches aloft like fingers seeking warmth
And as the sun cleared the eastern view of the lake, rays of brilliant light
Like ribbons of fire, came streaking across the water towards me
The burgeoning light gave colour to the water and woods, turning the sky blue
A soft breeze followed the rays, ruffling the water at the edge of the beach
Teasing the hem of my nightie. I shivered standing in the light coat of frost
Already beginning to disappear, as the earth began to warm itself
I breathed in the last of the dawn, holding my arms round myself for warmth
Then returned to my bed, dreaming Persephone’s dreams

Super stoked to be able to share this! I was interviewed two weeks ago and the e-magazine just published a few hours ago. Design is what keeps me away from poetry at times, so here’s what I generally keep over on my Geek blog.
I am so excited (thrilled, honoured, humbled) to have been a feature designer on today’s Berroco Designer Spotlight.
Ashley Palumbo, Social Media Director for Berroco Inc. contacted me a few weeks ago to conduct an interview. Ashley saw my “Filigree” scarf pattern, worked in Berroco “Folio” yarn and got in touch with me.
Please read the article at the link below. I think I’ll take myself out for a fancy coffee to celebrate! 🙂

I’m posting this on my writing blog as well… I wonder how the fibre muggles will react to my post title…?

I’m sorry. That was so NOT Canadian. I’m sorry you’ll need to be Canadian to get the joke. Sorry about that 😉
