May - pairing

There is not a lot of back story for this scarf. I purchased it on a family Thanksgiving weekend in Winnipeg. Happy memories for me, and I wear this scarf a lot.

Land Warming Flag

This windsock is for a family with a pretty piece of property in the country. There are 4 people in the family and 4 colours in the windsock. The colours are blue sky, green land, dark blue water and red "Stop. You are here." I took these photos in my back yard. 

And these at today's installation:

Me and my accomplices:

Armenian Knot

This was hard and I did not get it as exact as I would have wished. My compass does not make small circles, which was only one of my problems. The paper cut out version does not show the interweaving aspect of this design so I included the practice piece as well.

Only Leave A Trace - paintings and printing

Only Leave A Trace by Roger Epp, launched and available, has my fingerprints all over it. I am honoured that Roger wanted to include my little visual sketches in his work of the heart. I very much appreciate the work of designer Alan Brownoff at the University of Alberta Press, and the high quality printing of Friesens in Altona, Manitoba. I am somewhat amused that the paintings are bigger as they appear in the book than they actually are.
