Surprise in the greenhouse

During a recent Ottawa greenhouse tour-amongst the beautiful plants were signs of little people at play. It was a surprise and so much fun to find.

course with Penny Berens

I took a course with Penny Berens, organized by the Kingston Fibreworks group. Penny had us zero in on a detail of a picture and experiment as to how we might represent that detail. I made a few coloured versions before I cut into my fabric. Have yet to finish it- but a very fun process.
