Thanks for your support - Jane.

I am getting a lot of support from friends and family. I give thanks for that.
This time it was a generous gift of ends of spools from Jane Stafford.
Imagine my happiness to discover this Aladdin's Cave of threads available on my doorstep - a half an hour's drive north, on the island.
Jane wants to empty the spools / I want a selection of coloured threads for my next knotted piece of art.
A marriage made in heaven.  How clever of Jane to propose it.
Thanks again Jane.

The Institute for Canadian Citizenship has given me some ideas for colour combinations.
I don't want to get into trouble for illustrating this blog entry with their logos... do go here to learn about all their good works.

My works recently are about thoughts and connectivity, particularly across cultures
I certainly won't be using their (probably copyrighted) colour choices, but the concept of using colours for suggesting diversity is clearly sound.
Whilst searching about on the Institute's website I learnt about the LaFontaine-Baldwin Lectures ( since 2000) and am now listening to them (online).  What a gift too.
