My coat of many colours! I am so stoked on the Penguono pattern by @westknits. I'm using up my stash and having so much fun. #wip #penguono #knitstagram

Today I was given a very special gift by my weaving mentor that I will cherish forever. The very first project she ever wove on her own, a white on white birds eye scarf out of a linen warp and cotton chenille weft. A reminder that handwovens are not always perfect, especially in the beginning.

It's been a long time sine I've posted anything! I have a tonne of WIPs and it's been pretty busy emerging from that long winter. I'm so pleased I've hand stitched the finishing touches on this cross stitched pencil case which is a grade 4 handwork project at our Waldorf school. I'll be using mine as a notions pouch. It is amazing what the children can create with the blank aida cloth and how much they love it. In Waldorf pedagogy the cross stitch project is important for the 10 year old child and their work reveals so much about them. #waldorfkids #waldorfeducation #handwork #crossstitch #handstitched #symmetry

Whipped up an embroidery sampler for a workshop starting next week at the Cumberland Community School. Doubles as a wool felt patch too. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐ŸŒˆ #embroidery #handstitched #madebyhand #handwork #rainbow

I had the pleasure of sewing up these lovely baby slippers with a kit by the lovely @seaweaverstudio. The kit is thoughtfully and lovingly created with beautiful reclaimed materials.

My fave gift I gave this year, for Thom and his Dodge Cummins named Rosie.

From our family to yours, Merry Christmas 2016! Xoxo

The Kitty shrine is growing in preparation for our 2016 holiday photo. She is a bit unsure of her crocheted tuxedo Amicat even though it's 100%wool, her favorite! Great pattern by @planetjune

This is a grade 1 knitting project enjoying the advent nature table. It is the first thing I've knitted Continental, I've been knitting English style for years. It was a great exercise for my hands and my brain. I am sitting with the developmental benefits of teaching children to knit in this way. #knitting #knittersofinstagram #waldorfeducation #handworkteacher #handwork #sacredadvent

A shot of the two public cross stitch pieces together at a park near my house. Volunteer contributor planted this maple many years ago and another left this beautiful door to decay perfectly. ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™ #crossstitch #yarnbomb #thefutureisfemale
