Winter Wonderland In The Country

Look what has arrived here in the beautiful Ontario. I love the sunshine in the winter too.

It has been a beautiful October and yes November too. With only 2 weeks ago of +20 temperatures. How it can change so fast.. But look at how pretty this white stuff can be too.

SHADOW PLAY

Freedom In The Dance

There is something so peaceful in this world.

Have you ever looked at a spent dandelion close up? So totally beautiful and at peace.

I love taking pictures of them in all ways. So love blowing them to endless dreams. There is this incredible happiness and joy I feel when I see the spores drifting off into the winds.

A freedom that most of us never will experience.

So delicate and soft in the wind they dance in once let go… A dream of mine to fly high and drift of to endless peace, happiness…..I make my WISH….

May you too enjoy this freedom….

Sunsets Over The Months

It has been way to long again since I was here writing. Have you ever felt like you have lost a passion for something. Well I kind of did with my writing here. Though in past months I have found I rekindled with my camera.

Yes Sunsets have taken over my evenings of joy and happiness.

Well it has been a summer to remember and now the Fall is here again too. Well wait…. I think I should say winter! As Halloween has come and gone. And promptly the Snow fell already too.

I coud not believe today as I drove in my truck I heard the first Christmas Songs on the raidio.

So I thought I better show you some on my Sunsets & Sunrises I hade seen this past months.

After The Rain Beauty

Fresh and all full of rain droplets. Love taking this kind of pictures. Planted the Allium bulbs last fall with the hope I would see them this year.

I keep on looking to see if I see a reflection in any of the droplets… One day I will master this too.

Wishing You all a nice Sunday…

Pileated Woodpecker

This was totally amazing to see. First we did hear this loud noise from some kind of bird. Though we had no idea what it was from. I could not believe my luck, a Pileated woodpecker. The largest woodpecker alive in North America. It’s really interesting as I just not long ago was looking up the different kinds of woodpeckers we have here in Canada.

you can see it on the right sitting on a tree trunk. I believe this one is a male.

Here I am walking at Awenda Provincial Park and look what we did see. Unfortunately for me I did not have my telefocus lens with me… but taking my time I did get a flyby shot of this amazing Woodpecker.

A Walk At Awenda

Trillium’s are out in fill bloom all over the forest. We always had seen them towards the end of the season. A drive up to Awenda Provincial Park last Sunday was showing us them in full bloom.

Almost all of the trillium’s here are white..

Was looking to see if I find any pink or red once. Had seen them in another forest just as they started to come into blooming seasons 2 weeks ago.

Magnolia In Bloom

Spring is finally hear…

Though It feels like we skiped Spring once again… with +30 in past days.

So loving this heat…

Well until today.

Rain rain rain all day.

It’s Ok too grass and flowers love it.

My Magnolia tree is In full bloom once again this season… Glad I did get some great pictures before the rain today.

Blooming To Perfection

Always love taking pictures of water droplets on anything I can find. This day May 9 it was one of those days where we had some rain just the morning off. So I know there would be some great pictures. However this tulip took my eye right over. It was the first one to open up this year and it looked just so special in the new stage of life. Sometimes I feel many people see the beauty in the open flowers only.

This to me was even more special.

I feel the three leaves surrounding the inner pedals, are like a mother hugging her child.

For this shot I used my Canon EOS 70D and used my Macro lens to get it nice and close up.

Have a open mind look for the unusual things in life. See the beauty though your heart and soul….Just have fun.I very seldom modify my pictures. I may crop them here and there to take out extra that is not needed in picture.

Loading The Loom

You have seen in past posts of mine

“First Weaving Projects” and “Loading My Warping Reel”.

Here I am now with my Loom that needs to be “dressed”. I need to string the yarn though from front to back onto my bedder.

Holding the yarn in my one hand making sure the ” X ” in the yarn does not get off my fingers. As they have to be strung exactly in this order as they are .

Now I have to feed the yarn from the front onto the bedder one by one.

Here You see all is strung though the headdles and now tied on to the front bar.
Nice and tight and ready to start my next weaving project.

Forget-Me-Not

Somehow a bird must have drooped this seed in my garden…

One of my favorite flower in the spring. It has a special meaning to me.. in so many ways. My childhood back home in Switzerland and memories of happiness growing up so free and loved. With bunnies in the garden and us playing with the Guinea pigs in the fields that where our pets. How could you not love to grow up with this kind of happiness.

Some may never ever experience this kind of joy. I am so grateful to have had this kind of joy.

My Mom ( Mutt) and Dad (Vat) always loved us no matter what even now my mom is the most amazing lady I know.

Unconditional Love for her kids.. even if we give her up and downs. Kids kind of do that to their parents… we all know that.

But mom, in my case loves all of me… Dad in heaven is always looking out. I know He doesn’t judge me for my up and downs.

“No one can take this happiness ever away!”

Because no matter what, bonds don’t break … ever.

“loved Once in Heaven are always with us …we never forget them and they are always in our hearts.

UNCONDITIONAL LOVE FOREVER

Child Sweater

Love how this sweater turned out. I am blessed to have had this order from a grandma to knit this sweater for her grandson.

It always is special to see that at times people do reach out fro handmade items. I n my case it is handknit with my love for the passion of joy and happiness in my knitting this special gift for her grandson.

A pattern I had from a Magazine called Penguin from many years ago…

Loading My Warping Reel

The last project of my loom has come off… New one to begin. With that said I had to figure out how to do use my warping reel. First time ever.

Sure it was kind off unsure of what to do next. But it actually was not to complicated to figuring it out. “Yes I Can” Just followed the instructions as in many other things … Someone tells me to read the manuals… or go to YouTub. So I did and look it up. Seemed to work out not to bad.

Love The Sound Of Birds

There is something so beautiful to wake up in the morning with the sound of birds singing. I love to have the window open and hear them sing to me.. well so it seems at least to me..

I love to take there pictures too. So we have Yellow Finch now feeding on the tree in our backyard lately.

First Weaving Projects

Yehh finally all finished my first project done on my Leclerc table loom.

I think I bought this Loom form my colleague about a year ago. I put all my effort in to it then to learn how to weave. But then I got stuck on how to take my project “A Scarf” off the loom.

In some of the pictures I am just showing you how some of my stuff was set up at the end of this project. I am honestly not sure why I was scared to remove this…

So I have just simply worked on this particular scarf to get myself familiar on how to weave. I love how this turned out…
