Hand Spun


A little happy batch of hand spun yarn, loose and the colour of passing summer on the beach.
A little apprehensive to begin a project with such a precious thing.


Doily made by unicorn witches!

A positive quote about hand knits from Jim Drain

"Knitting is a living tradition - it's physical knowledge as a culture.
Knowledge as language dies so quickly. It is awesome to find a sweater and look at the language of it- to see how it's made, what yarn was used and how problems were solved.
A sweater is a form of consciouseness."

I've been away from my computer for most of the summer, but not away from my arts and crafts..

Much to come!!

Embroidery is as addictive as drawing and knitting. Beware.

Ever google yourself?

Well I did just to make sure my digital record was nice and pretty. And it was.

I found an article I was mentioned in. just a little mention but still.

this was from a show I was a part of last year, the director of Gallery 1313 was interviewed by another gallery.

Knob Cozy.


I live in a small apartment with many doors. More doors than I have lived with for a while.
I live with two cats, who have fallen in love with slamming these doors. These doors, when slammed, make loud noises and leave marks on the walls.
To quiet down this nonsense I made these simple little door knob cozy's.
It has worked tremendously.
Just another instance of the value of resourcefulness and craftiness.
