time flies

still spinning

  a serious stash of cotton fibre to spin in airports and on a long flight

I will have to think of a weaving project for the summer

any ideas?

the rhubarb is growing

  
and the strawberries are already blossoming

  
the weather was beautiful for the first day of the studio tour 

with a constant stream of visitors

thanks to everyone who made the effort 

it is always encouraging to talk with students, old friends and meet new folks.

  hoping for a sunny day tomorrow

and I think I’m finally get the hang of posting on the iPad

patience is a virtue – right?

    I make rhubarb sauce to eat on cake, or breakfast! I don’t know what to suggest for hand spun cotton, But I love the colours.

    You could weave a summer top from your lovely cotton spinning. Glad your open studio is going well. Yum! I have rhubarb too and I’m saving the leaves in the freezer for mordant for my next yarn spinning project. They are such useful plants: mordant in the leaves, dye in the roots and “fruit” for dessert!

    Bon voyage!!! I wish you a superlative(!) trip to Japan – I know you will make the most of every minute. Let Bryan know that he has to come back to Vancouver or Victoria so I can do a workshop with him!

    Hugs!
