Hello! Long time, no hear; I know. For me, craftwise, 2016 was somewhat of a writeoff. I made the decision back in May that I would not be participating in craft shows last year. I needed to tend to some family and personal matters and just didn’t have the steam to prepare for shows for… Continue reading Updating With Home Projects
Last summer I experimented with making my own sunhat pattern. I was quite pleased with how the hat turned out! Because I was so pleased, I immediately began picking out fabrics to make another one. Because, it’s just fun to make things when you are pleased with your own design. 😀 I poked around in… Continue reading Watermelon Silk Sunhat, Beaded Crocheted Flower Blanket, and Lime Green Bag
I went through my photos today to curate collections of some of my favourite creations so far of the things I’ve made in the past six years. I am in the midst of applying for a couple of juried craft shows for the fall, so here is a post where jurors can see the variety of techniques,… Continue reading My Favourite Creations So Far!
I am very excited to announce that, after years of friends encouraging me to do so, I have finally opened a shop on the Etsy marketplace!! Wow, setting it up has been a HUUUUUUGGGGGGEEEEEEE learning curve for me, and I’m nowhere near done learning yet. But I have the basic setup done, and I have… Continue reading I Have An Online Shop Finally!!!!!!
I know it’s been awhile since my last post, but I am still crafting away here in between all my other life duties! I’ve slowed down on the mass-production mode I had been in; and I’ve enjoyed making unique pillowcases, sunhats, mittens, and granny squares for two different blankets. The following photos are of the… Continue reading Pillowcases! Sunhats! Mittens! Granny Squares!

(You’ll find other pre-blogging days past creations of mine here, here, and here.) Crocheted hats: Knit scarves: Tissue holders made from silk: Card, dishcloths, bottle holders, and sewing machine cover (this is… Continue reading More Past Creations!
I created some pillowcases out of my collected upcycled vintage floral sheet and thrifted gingham and striped fabrics! I made two for our home, and two for a wedding gift. I made each one out of three different fabrics, I embroidered some of the edges, I used French seams on the sides, and I used… Continue reading New Pillowcases and Past Creations
I took a break from “mass production” of products during the past couple of months. Instead, I worked on various personal projects, such as a ukelele bag and a yellow patchwork comforter cover. The first resulted from a request from my husband who teaches guitar for a living. He asked if I could make a… Continue reading Ukelele Bag and Yellow Patchwork Comforter Cover
I just finished a three-day weekend of my first big (translation: pricier-booth-rental-but-thousands-of-visitors-coming-through) craft show! I was a vendor at the Dalplex Christmas Craft Market. It was a lot of fun having a booth space (8 ft. by 10 ft.) in which to spread out my products. I had a general layout idea in my head,… Continue reading Dalplex Christmas Craft Market – My First Big Craft Show!
Why yes, this is my second post in one day. This is because I suddenly remembered that I had a few other photos of things I’ve made in past years from vintage cotton floral sheets (or just solid-coloured sheets that I liked). Here you go!
