Maternal Creations

Picture by Jane Wheatley

Thanks to Jane Wheatley I have a few pictures of my table at the Maternal Creations craft fair, which took place at Pomegranate Midwives Clinic in Vancouver (Nov 23-25). So stupid, to not bring my camera, I could have taken so many pictures of all the great work and of the amazing, inspiring, creative Momma's. I'm not sure how everyone does it, combining motherhood and creating such an abundance of high quality work. I couldn't help myself, but had to buy some of each.... Check out Ella's dolls and crowns, she uses beautiful fabrics, Anna's soft and cuddly sewing work (and knitting!) and Jane's inspiring natural Elfin hats, tree stumps and kimono's.

Mieke and I had a fun connection, she's from Prince George and came all the way down to the fair as well. She told me her name is Dutch for Mary, but I couldn't help myself and before I knew it I told her that's not correct. Apparently I now have dismantled the last family secret.... Quite intriguing.

Thank you Lehe, for getting us all together and providing the cozy space of the clinic.

Ella, I hope to be able to canoe (as the kayak would be just a bit tight...) both you and Jane over one day to my house and studio...
