I received an impromptu lesson on the spinning wheel today. I was excited. It is a technique I would have to practice if I wanted to be at all effective at it.
I’m pretty sure I look adorable doing it;) Thanks to Tammy for giving me her guidance. This wool/flax blend would be great for a utilitarian apron or market bag. I can’t wait until this years flax harvest is ready to become linen fibre. The harvest I helped with. It would mean a lot to me to be involved in the production of garments.
So much fun!
Archeaology dig on this beautiful day…
This was waiting for me when I arrived home from White Point today…
It seems like whatever I’m intrigued about at the moment is always featured in this magazine.
Took a rather impromptu vacation day today. Started off with a little archaeology. Ended it with some knitting time with my knitting pals. Perfect!
This I’m knitting with local wool. Maritime Wool.
My last day was great. I found a few more clues to the inscription. We were able to spend the afternoon doing some rescue archeaology on the shoreline. A burial has become exposed due to coastal erosion.
A nice way to spend an afternoon. Listening to the crashing waves and coastal birds.
The handcraft guild at Louisbourg creates beautiful things. This 18th century ladies pocket I purchased today at The Fortress gift shop. They make great yarn bags. I like the idea of having a pocket to tie on. I probably could make it steampunkish. Well I could try…
