This last week and a half allowed us to see some amazing scenery while on the road. Oddly, much of the time we were faced with patchy 3G and poor WiFi on all of our family phones. When even Instagram was failing all the time (losing connection part way through the upload), and I was excited to see two bars on my phone (one seemed to be the norm), I knew that there was no way putting up a blog post would work. So now, sitting at home with a good Internet connection, I can finally share iPhone pics from the road.
I thought today would be a good time to put up a “Works in Progress” post. 2016 seems to have given me a lot of opportunity (or possibly inspiration) to work on creative pursuits. So here it is, in a visual presentation, the current works in progress.
Carving, wood burning and painted accents. This piece when completed will be a ring dish.
Adding more Canadiana into the knit line at www.handmade-canada.com . These pieces are not on line yet but will be coming soon.
Natural dyeing of wool…..a lot of natural dyeing.
Carving spoons the perfect size for the sugar bowl. Large spoons are next on the list thanks to a brand new gouge.
Lots of “road knitting” while working on larger pieces. This will be a Cowichan inspired pillow cover.
Still working on the Roe Islet series of paintings both on panel and paper. The large squares measure 2 ft. by 2 ft., while the paper works are larger.
Handmade toggles with wood burned embellishments will be decorating new knit items in the near future.
A lot of items being worked on at the moment. Most of these images are from my Instagram accounts, it is where I post my most up to date works in progress. The accounts are @handmadeincanada and @debramhunter ; feel free to follow if you like to see quick visual posts.
What is up next? More natural dyeing, more toggles, knit cuffs, more spoons and finishing a painting in progress. Hopefully soon a few of these new pieces will be available on www.handmade-canada.com .
