Textures & Toast

I’ve really been into playing with texture and textiles lately (hence the new banner). The wood texture under the title is from an old box that holds a stamp kit. It must have been used for some kind of department store signs, (a junk store find). The flower pattern is from a tablecloth that I got in a fabulous vintage textile shop in Creemore, (I actually used pieces of it in a large collage for the show).

I spent yesterday afternoon making a large batch of “Wild Grape Jelly” from grapes harvested on my friend’s property in Beaver Valley. My hands were dyed purple after hours of picking, but the result is the most flavourful jelly you have ever tasted, (similar to black currant in taste).
Tonight we are off to a large bookstore to browse aimlessly and drink fancy expensive coffe. I’m treating myself. I am delighted to find out that my creative crisis yesterday has spawned a “time out” movement amongst many of you. May we all recharge happily (and without guilt) together!
