Now that I'm finished with my summer job, I have a couple weeks before school starts so I've been busy weaving, dyeing and knitting. Everything is going well and I even was able to warp up my loom in a short period of time--which is exciting to me because this used to take me a long time.



I also found this super cute picture of a sheep...he was just hanging out on the side of the road during my recent trip to Salt Spring Island. Just as I was taking the pic, he looked up at me which I thought was perfect.


A couple of days ago I received some sad news from back home...so I have been thinking about my friend a lot and dedicating my meditation to him.

Thanks for checking in.

Party and Knitting


That's what I've been up to lately. A friend of mine had a rad indigo party for her bday. What's an indigo party you ask? Well it's when we have a couple of indigo vats going and the guests get to dye whatever items they bring! It was totally fun and I got to see lots of peeps from school.



I have also been knittinggggg...lots and lots of knitting. I can't stop. I love it. More shrugs availabe in the shop.

Last Night


Last night L and I went to check out the Fibre, Naturally show at Emily Carr, Granville Island. This show was amazing, everything was made out of this special hanji paper which comes from the inner bark of the mulberry tree. This paper can be felted into all kinds of things (see below)...when it dries, it becomes very durable. You can make wallets, dresses and yarn out of it.
Some amazing stuff was done with it for this show that featured Korean artists.








We also attended a quick demo on how to felt hanji paper:
There is a fashion show tonight featuring fashion made out of this unique paper but alas it's $20 to attend (I wish they had a student discount).

Welcome!


Hello hello and welcome to the new blog! I'm really excited about continuing to update here in this space like I used to in the last blog. The purpose for the change is just a little re branding...still the same lil ole me.

What you can expect from this blog? Fun posts about what I'm working on, eating and places I'm visiting. Also lots about the "little things", because I'm really into that sort of thing.

I have posted some textile goodies to my new shop, so please go and visit :)
