Our lawn is not so much a lawn, as it is a field of dandelions. Doesn't really matter to me. Yesterday I picked a bunch and put them in the dyepot. It made a very lovely shade of yellow on a silk/cotton blend. Now what should I do next? (ps...I did finally get the lawnmower working, but luckily I think the dandelions just duck down when it passes by!)

Over the weekend I travelled to New-Wes-Valley in central Newfoundland and Labrador, to attend the AGM of the Craft Council of Newfoundland and Labrador. I'm now the new Vice-Chair and very proud to serve such a hard working group of people. The landscape is beautiful and dramatic there. I also (finally) got a chance to visit Norton's Cove Studio. Janet Davis is a Printmaker and also does amazing work in Textiles. We met a few years back and I have admired her ever since. The yellow house took Janet and her husband Duke over seven years to bring back to life and it is absolutely beautiful. It was a great weekend even with all the meetings!
