On holiday for a week and I get into all sorts of things….

Some of Dany’s and my creations at our village Christmas sale.

The weekend before I went to the Christmas sale in the next village over, L’Anse St-Jean,  and won this beautiful tablecloth.  Lucky me.

Came upstairs one day and this beautiful apple wood dish was sitting on the table. Nice work Dany.

My quality  control inspector spent a lot of time near me helping with suggestions.  😉 (or just snoozing in his basket)

I was asked again this year to do some spinning demos at the “Artisans de chez nous” boutique in Chicoutimi and I had a great time explaining how the spinning wheel works. And it was fun to have my new Kiwi wheel so I could let people try out the wheel. Some very interesting  wool came out of that. 😉

This is some of the wool I had a chance to spin while on holiday. Above is Merino /cashmere/nylon mix that is sooooo soft.

This is some fine spun Shetland that I just plied. I even got a little stitching in but more on that later….cause I am working on a secret.😆
