Windows Onto Saltspring

I had such a great time on Saltspring Island that I will do several posts about it. I was delighted that the gallery/shop 'Knotty Threads'was open when I arrived, since I've missed out on seeing inside of it in the past, having to content myself with peering through the windows. This time, I could do that from inside out! I bought several interesting yarns there and saw gorgeous nuno scarves and lovely, detailed textile art by Kirsten Chursinoff. You can see some of her work here: http://www.chursinoff.com/kirsten/index.html This window in the cafe where I ate my lunch looked like a painting on the wall:

And one other interestingly shaped window:

As well as some stained glass where I stayed. I love the blurred shapes and colours of the buildings and street when I zoom in on them.

And of course I went to 'Stitches' - always a highlight of any trip to Saltspring - with their colourful displays of fibre art and fountains of supplies.

There was alot to see and it was the perfect time of year with all the fall colours - and I think those came out in my shawl, as well.
