Show and Tell Time.

This year I wanted to give my humble front porch a Moroccan feel. I did a little research about Moroccan gardens and learned of some of the elements I would need. Water, tile, THAT blue, lush greenery, perhaps some cane or wicker, those fabulous lanterns, bright colours and a feeling of privacy to reflect private inner courtyards.

Here's a peek at my attempt so far.

What's up with this great big space here ???????????????

I have been itchy, anxious and scattered lately. I felt the need to drum. I drummed. I felt the need for a BIGGER drum. I bought one! Just "won" this little beauty on eBay. I'm told the sound is "wonderful". The price was excellent. This djembe is 20" tall; my first djembe, which I still love is a little 14" drum.

Knit knit knit and more knitting and may I present "Clapotis the First". I have lusted after this scarf-shawl for a few years and finally took the workshop and have completed my own. There will be more to come. This fibre is 100% sugarcane and produced the most silky, soft and drapey fabric ever.In my lovely corkscrew hazel tree....this first week of June and the garden is so many beautiful shades of green.

I love the magic of this project, this design. The piece can stretch out to be a light summer shawl and then it folds in on itself to make a narrow, warm and light scarf.

Ahhh coffee and my Morocco travel book.
