I’ve picked a few new mags to get me through to the spring. America’s Test Kitchen Special Collector’s Edition: Best-ever Side Dishes is even out until June so I have lots of time to cook!
Check out my sewing project for February. Remember, aside from my cooking challenge I want to make AT LEAST 1 made by me garment a month.
Check out my first Made-by-me garment of 2018! The Hudson Pant by True Bias.

Yesterday John and I drove to Guelph to Greenwood Quiltery to get a few bits of fabric. Of course we then had to have lunch at With the Grain. Our detour stop was to go to the Triangle Sewing Centre down the road because I need to get my sewing machine serviced. They are also […]
It was an early morning today! Up at 5 to meet at the Needle Emporium. I was helping with Julie’s booth at the Downtown Knit Collective’s Knitter’s Frolic at the Japanese Cultural Centre. If you haven’t been before it is well worth the trip. This year Julie featured the new Mrs. Crosby yarn. It comes […]
I can’t believe the Gift Fair is over! It was a wonderful event and drum roll please…we raised £12,000 for Parkinson’s UK and Herts Young Homelessness. Amazing, right! It was a crazy few days from set up Thursday night… To set up on Friday morning… While I was running around organising and talking to vendors […]
