A couple of summers ago I came across this magnificent canola field near the Lake Huron shore. The photograph doesn’t do the scene justice, because what you can’t see is the thunderstorm brewing overhead, and of course you can’t feel the heat and humidity of the summer day.
The scene I saw that day has been inspiring me ever since, and I’ve decided to do a design challenge: to translate the canola field experience into all forms of fibre art that I can.
Over the coming weeks I’m looking forward to showing you canola inspired embroidery, rug hooking, quilting, weaving, and possibly knitting.
If you’re interested, why not join me in this challenge?
