Flax Harvest

I had a fun few hours helping to harvest my CSA farm’s field of flax.  I love getting my fingers in the soil.  Hand harvesting makes you connect with the soil like nothing else.  It’s inspiring to see a community of like-minded people come together for a common goal.  Harvest flax, make fibre, make clothes.  The spinning display was a marvel.  I need to add spinning to my life for sure.

Day in Life

Took a rather impromptu vacation day today.  Started off with a little archaeology.  Ended it with some knitting time with my knitting pals.  Perfect! 


This I’m knitting with local wool.  Maritime Wool.

Louisbourg Day Five

My last day was great.  I found a few more clues to the inscription.  We were able to spend the afternoon doing some rescue archeaology on the shoreline.  A burial has become exposed due to coastal erosion.  

A nice way to spend an afternoon.  Listening to the crashing waves and coastal birds.
