Counting down the final days of summer now. It's a race at my house to see if I'll get my quilt top pieced before the kids go back to school. I hope your projects are coming along nicely!

Happy Wednesday everyone! I have luckily (no small thing with kids underfoot constantly) been able to sew recently. I'm nearly done a scrappy quilt, and I need to make some shorts for both my kids. Sparkle stretch denim of course! What are you working on?

WIP Wednesday #300 @TN&TN

Did you see what number this is? 300. 300 weeks is a LOT of weeks. 

That converts to ~2,100 days. Or 69 months. Or 5.75 years. I can't access the old link up central site from that far back but a very low estimate would be ~3,000 different projects linked up.

Think about how much creativity, beauty, frustration, successes, and how many completed projects we have shared with each other. Yay you guys! Yay us!

To celebrate a bit I freshened up the look of the blog a bit. Feedback and suggestions are always welcome (you can email me here) but I hope you like it.

It's hot...and sticky...but creating is awesome. I know a few folks who do outdoor crafting in the summer. Specifically tie-dyeing! I've done indigo dying outside in summer as well (only once but it was so much fun!)

How about you? Any fun outdoor based crafting?

Happy birthday Canada! I'm quite sure there was a party or fireworks pretty much everywhere in Canada this weekend. All over the internet I saw many fibre projects celebrating the maple leaf or red and white.

I'm a quilter, so I tend to keep my eye on quilting events. Were any of you able to attend Quilt Canada in Toronto last week? I heard the quilts were *amazing*

And I'm a bit late to the party for this one but last month the Embroiderer's Association of Canada had their big seminar/party in Newfoundland! 

What about you weavers and spinners? Do you folks have a big ol' party anywhere? What other fibre art forms have national associations? Knitters? Tatters? Doll-makers?

Happy middle of June every one! Do you make handmade presents for the teachers/aides/helpers/leaders in your kids' lives? Or if you're a teacher/aide/leader, do you make gifts for your students?

It's nearly holiday time (sorry Atlantic Canada!) for most of us Canadians. Living in Victoria, we take our Victoria Day seriously with a huge parade on Monday. I usually make a deal with my kids: I'll take them and sit through three hours of marching bands and they will let me sew in the afternoon. Sounds fair to me!

Hello friends!

If you're reading this then you're probably okay at your house and your stash is fine. But there are many of our fellow artists, creators, and crafters who have been evacuated from their houses in Qu├ębec and Ontario. Please take a moment to think of them as they deal with much bigger problems than "does this colour match closely enough?"

But if you're making today or this week will you share it with us? Let us see what you're working on! The link-up is open from noon Tuesday (Pacific time) until noon Thursday (Pacific time).

Hooray hooray, it's the first of May! (or near enough). Is it safe to say spring is officially here? Only if all the snow has melted in Calgary.

I got my quilt done in time for the call for entries; now I have to sit tight and wait for the hopefully good news of acceptance. But a funny thing happened...I want to make another quilt in response to my first one. Best get busy sewing!

Happy sewing time everyone! What are YOU working on now? 

I'm on a self imposed deadline this week, trying to finish something for a call for submission. Have you ever submitted something for a show or publication? Scary isn't it? But exhilarating too.
