a new painting and cordage. I am working on stuff for the show at the Maple Ridge Art Gallery, Mar-Apr 2015.

This is the first time I have made cordage and I love it. I picked the plants from my garden and made long ropes, not sure what I will use them in but they have a lovely look. I found out how to do this on http://www.jonsbushcraft.com . It is easy to do. I also made raffia cordage.
