Fun skein

This was fun to spin ! I made it as a sample of my "spin ins" I am making in preparation for the Vancouver Island Fibre Festival. Feathers,flowers and other assorted fibre in this skein.


.... Is where the chair is.  (And the food)
Jem is back after 36 hours. It would be fun to have a tiny camera on him during his travels !

Great Blue Herons

I was totally transfixed checking out these 5 beautiful birds sitting in a tree behind our house. Maybe they have a nest, I hope so !
This is when I wish I had a super duper mega lens for my Canon Rebel.
Well I don't, (sighs), so here is a really bad picture of them !

Happy St Patricks Day

from Anise and Tansy !
This picture was taken by their wonderful shepherd April.
 They live over the strait on Vancouver Island.
Thanks April and Happy St Patricks Day from all of us at Periwinkle too.

What could make a farm girl happier than shiny new boots ?

Free boots, that's what !
Just redeemed some Quality Foods points to get these. ♡ (^。^) ♡

That would be me..... At blogging that is......
I have to confess to falling down the rabbit hole into the Facebook vortex, (and feel free to send me a friend thingy on fb and we can connect there too), but in the meantime I'm going to try and do better HERE.
So here we are post #1 for 2013
And on the ipad so I'm going to keep it simple.
