Current Exhibit - on now!

I personally love the Todmorden space, partly because of its heritage location, its trails on site, and the fact that it is seems so far removed from the Toronto mega core. 
The current CFS exhibit (see details below) makes one more reason to go and enjoy the space. I found it a well curated show, with strong little pockets here and there to add variety to the stunning main space pieces. Do go if you can make it. And yes, I have a piece on display - my most recent one from the Lake Superior, Pukaskwa series. Enjoy!

Does pickling vinegar dissolve nail polish?

The kitchen smells of cloves and vinegar with an undertone of dill. An hour and a half peeling pearl onions and this is what we got - 3 small cocktail jars of pickles.  It looked easy on Martha's site. Easy is not the same as fast! Is there a machine for this?

The day of the green harvest - plant and soul!

The heat combined with the beauty of the garden drives me back indoors to explore the nuances of green.....mmmm
fabric stash, watercolours, acrylic wash, embroidery thread - time to gather up shades for a new collection! No pressure to create today, just to gather input. It's been a long time!

Out of the depths of darkness...

This tiny patch of joy greeted me as I tried to fit all the Christmas decorations boxes back on the shelves. I swear they multiply when they hit the tree. Must be all the love around :)
So what? You might well ask! To me it is a small miracle. A bud, the promise of a flower in the snowy minus 20 days of January, emerging in the windowless basement - no water, no light (it truly is only a storage place) - just hope.
Happy longer days to everyone! Bring on the beautiful sun!
