Gathering at the Edge

I got home yesterday afternoon from The Gathering at the Edge in Colwood, to celebrate the Surface Design Canada exhibition Edge of the Forest arriving in the Victoria area of British Columbia.
It was a wonderful event, beautifully organized, and particularly great for getting to know my textile art colleagues.

Here I am in front of a blurry picture of my piece, titled "Cedar Forest".

The beautiful grounds at Royal Roads University.
