Remember that little sales table I introduced a few days ago?  I’ll show pictures of what’s on that table here every Friday until I’ve sold off everything that I need to remove from my inventory lists.

Foggy Island Candles: a gorgeous product with scents to trigger great Newfoundland memories.  The Stormy Nights candle is my favorite right now, and I have one burning while I’m at work quite often- smells like the cookstove, matches, and bread in nan’s kitchen.

I love these little felted art pieces.  Just pop them in a frame and enjoy the natural fibre beauty of a wonderful designer craftsperson, Catherine McCausland.












Black Friday Cyber Monday is a big deal with shoppers these days, even here in little old Newfoundland.  You can read up on what BFCM is here if you’re wondering where this marketing terminology came from.

My friends over at have come up with an alternative to Black Friday, aiming at supporting independent businesses and artisans, Indie Friday.  And I’m jumping on board that bandwagon.


…so on Indie Friday, I’ll be offering up a sale on my Norton’s Cove Cards, Mini-Prints, framed Mini-Prints, and Bookmarks.  Just use the code IndieFriday at the checkout to save 40% on your purchase.  This sale applies both online and in-store.


Surfacing 10: Waterhaul
70 6×6″ hooked mats | Janet Davis 2015 | $6,900 + HST
Available for purchase at the Craft Council Gallery until June 13th, 2015
My father mentioned a ‘waterhaul’ to me while creating this piece.
It was a term common amongst the generations of those who used cod traps.  If your trap was empty, it would be said that you had a “waterhaul”, meaning that there were no codfish in it!
See my twitterfeed between February and May of this year to see the day by day workings of this installation.  Each square took at least 5 hours of hooking.   Thanks to all my tweeps and peeps who kept me feeling pumped about this project while I spent all those hours and late evenings sitting and hooking!
