Culture crawl

Getting ready for the East Vancouver Culture Crawl- it's a studio tour that happens in east Van-
I'm at 1840 Triumph street (for wheelchair accessibility you have to go through the alley out back)

I'm sewing capes and naturally dyeing fabrics- busy life!

Shawna- Today's Brilliant Inspiration

You know that thing that happens through the internet and social media- where you meet people and get to be friends? Well, its happened for me and a woman named Shawna Doering.

She is an incredibly talented textile artist living in Denver Colorado- and she works at Fancy Tiger!

I just got off of an hour long skype date with her, and she is the inspiration for today. We got to speak about how geography affects your natural dye work, how making by hand is going to save the world, traveling to far off places to learn and be inspired, and also just life stuff- how to be an artist and pay your bills.

The photo above is a quilt she made- i'm totally in love!

Today was made more brilliant by Shawna.

I got cleared by the doctor to ride bikes!
3.5 weeks after my hysterectomy I'm back in the saddle!

Film- 35mm

The Darling One and I have been shooting 35mm film again- and we just got some developed.

Here are some of my favourites.

Above was shot on the Sunshine Coast in late September. 

Same with the one above here too. 

This is the Darling One and his mom and dad. They're tops!

The Grumpus and myself in the morning.

Late night tooth brush time!

And the last photo of the roll.

The forest

Healing is moving brilliantly forward- I thought I would be in a lot more pain than I am after surgery. It's been a week and I am down to Advil and Tylenol- and I can go for longer and longer walks. (Although the Darling One won't let me pick up anything heavier than my knitting, which is pretty great)

We went to the forest a few days ago, and it was a magical day.
