Light and blueberries

I love the way the light catches and reflects the patterns in this bowl. The bowl was hand made and painted on Santorini which is where I purchased it this summer.
Wild blueberries! I finally managed to get some while out doing errands this morning. I will freeze most of them and enjoy blueberry pancakes this winter!

I had a wonderful weekend in Stratford over Labour Day. A friend and I drove down and saw "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum" and "Macbeth" both were well done and I enjoyed them both. Sunday we wandered around the fairly deserted downtown and then meandered through the countryside on our way back to North Bay. Gorgeous weather! (for a change this summer.)

European Magnets

I love getting magnets, especially of places I have visited. So this last trip where we hit quite a few cities added significantly to my collection:) For more photos, see the links below and future posts where I will post some of the more artsy photos not in the links below.

Growing Lettuce

My friend is growing lettuce. I was over for dinner and to get 1/2 of our first lot from the CSA (Community Shared Agriculture) Farm that we are trying out this year. We got lettuce, cabbage and rhubarb!

A little shopping!

There's a new yarn store in town so I had to check it out:)
And then, since I was downtown already, I went to the quilt store.
Now I just need to find time to work on all my projects!

WWKiP 2009

Had great weather for World Wide Knit in Public Day! Got some knitting done and bought some alpaca from the local alpaca farm at the Farmers' Market.
Earlier in the week I made this cosy for my repaired camera.
Finished these socks which I have been working on for a while.
I haven't had a chance to post this yet. This is the quilt that the staff where I work made during our retreat. We thought of words that were important to us and they wrote them on pieces of fabric which I then pieced together and made this great quilt!

Snow almost in June

Tomorrow is June 1st, today it is snowing. I don't mean a few flakes floating around that I and others I know have been trying to pretend were just dandelions, I mean accumulating big fat flakes of snow!

It looks like a flower but I don't know if it really is a flower.

This is the reason to learn to knit. This was made for me by my friend Joy. (Joy also made me my dissected frog.) I definitely need to find more time to knit. (And she says sheepishly, blog.)

New Encyclopedia Set!

Well new to me, it is called "Above and Beyond: The Encyclopedia of Aviation and Space Sciences" 14 volumes from 1968. There are awesome pictures in. You have to be careful of these things when working in a library and dealing with discards but I couldn't resist giving this a home.

A Wonderful Surprise!

This is what I found in my candy bowl at work this morning. I love them!

Learning a new skill

Listening to your own voice is hard and speaking for that long properly is also a challenge. Here is something that I have been labouring over at work. I learned a lot and still have a lot to learn.

New Camera

Not that exciting a picture but taken with my new Canon Elph.
Needed a camera to be able to carry around - and it's mocha!

My First Socks!

I finally finished my first socks! I used Austermann Step yarn. I am wearing them now and they are very cosy! Now on to the next pair... not that knitting socks is addictive or anything:)

New Socks

These are my new socks that my dear friend Vaedri made for me! I love them! I waited until too late in the afternoon to take the picture - check out Vaedri's pics for a better idea of the colours.
