AND A FEW MORE…

Ahhhhhh my head is thumping! Roofers were here  yesterday – that’s right. Our 8 year old roof needed to be redone TWO YEARS AGO. So much for 35 year lifespan! Ours had 6! Actually, we tried to be green when we built the house – put in radiant floor heating and ICF foundation so that we would reduce energy bills and put organic shingles on our roof so that eventually in landfill they would break down quickly – never clicked that when a shingle decomposes in a landfill that means it can ALSO DECOMPOSE ON YOUR ROOF! So after a 2 year battle with the company that made the shingles and joining a class action suit we finally have the porch roofs redone. So a lot of thumping of bundles of shingles and banging of nailers went on yesterday… So today all is quiet again and I am enjoying my coffee and looking at the photos of the rugshow.

Here are a few more pix from the show…HPIM4534

  3. wow, I really like the one that gives the ‘woodcut’ look with the beavers, canoe, etc. And there was another rug at the show that was ‘over the top’ full of symbols of Canadiana. I wish I had taken my camera. Only problem is, I don’t think you can FILL the rug with all those symbols and stick to wide cut…and I am sticking to it 🙂 Here’s wishing you a peaceful day.

    • Hi Liz – that one reminds me of a Scherrenschnitt – we saw amazing ones in switzerland that were just black on white and white on black and towered like this one – I figured you would love all the canadiana symbols!!!! so that was my canadiana challenge piece haha…

  5. So many thanks for sharing these pictures with us. They will treat us whether we were at the show or not. I was really taken by the Morisseau(sp) piece and see it as a propulsion into a group workshop…with differing themes in his style…………. There were so many exceptional faces-human and animal-in the work showing at the Annual….. A marvellous show! Thank you and congratulations to all the organizers and volunteers!
