Temporary Unsettling

After a whirlwind move out of our apartment in Montreal, we’re temporarily in Newfoundland, on Canada’s east coast, for the summer. The glamours of working in a local restaurant (town pop. 400) may be written about at a later date, but for now I think I’ll leave it to a few photos to provide a proper introduction and ambiance to Woody Point, Nfld.

I’m hopeful that I will manage to get some craft time here, especially when the community is more or less fibre crazy – this really could be a crafter’s dream vacation spot. Knitting, crocheting, stained glass, rug hooking, pottery and ceramics, spinning, and sewing are all activities done within a five minute walk of the house we’re staying at. When I pluck up the courage to photography the studios and workplaces of these lovely ladies, I will post them here for the necessary ogling.

As for Woody Point itself, here is just a little sampling from a walk I took the first day I got in (which happened to be Canada Day):

    This town looks so lovely! We are honeymooning in Canada in three weeks. 🙂

    Goregous! I always think of Nova Scotia as a fiber artist’s paradise (even though I’ve never been). So glad to know that Newfoundland is such a place, too. Enjoy!
