Today I have a little indigo dyeing going on. I needed a light blue for a piece I have been commissioned to create, a blue to echo the Salish Sea. Indigo dyeing requires a lot of time and preparation. Yesterday I worked on creating the stock solution. Today was creating the working vat and then […]
This post is “the rest of Opus Daily Practice”. A bit of traveling managed to happen at the end of this project which meant I was able to post to Instagram, but my cell phone data plan was unhappy with the usage needed for blogging. Below are the rest of the pieces created for the […]
Opus Daily Practice day 10. The theme was “folk”. “Folk” isn’t far from a lot of the work I create. Today’s work is an “in progress” 2″x3.5″ ink drawing, and an ear flap style toque knit of naturally dyed wool. Lots of items “in progress” due to the Opus Daily Practice project, soon I will […]
Opus Daily Practice day 8. Today I decided to work on projects in progress than start a new one based on the prompt. Cold weather is allowing me to get a lot done. One bag finished. One hat finished. The maple leaf drawing is super close to finished, and the kayak drawing is in progress. […]
Recently blogging has taken a backseat. It seems the more one has to blog about the less time there is to actually blog.
Today I will share just a few things happening in the background, some of which are on my other blogs.
Photography has been busy recently. Head shots, grads, families and babies. Many an hour past midnight has been spent on the computer editing away. ( http://www.debra-hunter.com or http://www.hunterphotographics.wordpress.com )
With the blooming of wildflowers natural dyeing is a daily event. (www.handmade-canada.com)
Plus I have been knitting items for Talisman Books and Gallery on Pender Island and the Bear’s paw Bakery in Jasper. In addition to these two retailers I have been completing custom orders like the hats below…….
and making hats to be posted on the website. ( http://www.handmade-canada.com )
With tree pruning there has also been spoon carving. We won’t discuss the scale of this one, it is rather ambitious!
Our land search has taken us to the mountains multiple times, allowing us to enjoy many hikes.
The thing that keeps us busiest of all are our trips back and forth to the coast. After all, who can resist ocean kayaking? ( http://www.islandhomeblog.wordpress.com )
I do find I am able to keep more up-to-date on Instagram. I can be found at @debramhunter , @handmadeincanada, and at @hunterphotographics ……..social media is almost a full time job!

I’ve decided I am going to try something new with my blogging and other social media with Handmade in Canada, I’ve decided to combine images of Canada with the items. Many of the items I […]
Well I just got in from a walk and realized it is still mitten season! This pair of fingerless mitts has just been posted in the SHOP section of the Handmade in Canada website. The mittens are made of 100% Canadian produced wool. I then hand dye the wool in natural dyes; this pair has […]
