Spotlight: The Crafting Fiend Stitch Art

I’m so lucky! Really lucky that Nicky didn’t turn me in to the Mounties 2 years ago when I started stalking* her on FB. She just accepted that we were going to be friends. Phew!! And now she’s relented and agreed to write a guest post on my blog. So, heeeeee-eeee-eeere’s Nicky! I must say, […]

Feature: Fairy Bra Mother

Canada Rocks! Right? Right! And this July 1, we’re celebrating our 149th birthday. (We’re still looking pretty good for our advanced age.) What better way to show off our remarkable country and the impressive talent we have than to showcase a few of our sewing designers, teachers and suppliers in a Canada Day 2016 Blog […]

Do It Yourself Inspiration

Here we go again! I had the best of intentions to write up a nice little pictorial on how to pimp out your ironing board and post it so I could join the DIY Crush link party this week. I got all the pictures I could possibly need. I have all the instructions in my […]

Try Something New for May

Is it nearly the end of May already? Where does the time go?? If it weren’t for the smell of lilacs and fresh green grass, I’d swear it were still February. And you don’t want me to start swearing. Anyway, the Try Something New Every Month (TSNEM) theme for May was hand sewing. It’s a […]

Crushing

Holy Cannoli! Because I didn’t have enough good stuff on my plate, I had to volunteer to host* this week’s DIY craft party of total awesomeness. It’s week #34 and we need to top all the yumminess we dished up during week #33. If you missed it, you can take a trip back in time to […]

Earth Day Denim Upcycle — Part I

It’s earth week! This is the second day of an earth-friendly blog hop. (See the other hop stops at the end of this post.) And we’re paying homage to Mother Earth while we renew our individual efforts to save our home. Mars is not a suitable habitat for humans yet so forget that as an […]

Flash Finish — The Winners Are…

I’ll get straight to the point because I know what you want to know. Who won?? EDIT: The winner of the Rowan 3/4 Tote Kit from Craftsy is Heatherly824802. Luckyyyy! Nah! First, I’ll tell you the answer to the trivia question: The brand that used the advertising slogan, “Only in Canada, you say? Pity!” is Red Rose Tea […]

We’re unpacking our luggage and finding some great souvenirs from the trip, but it’s just too much to keep for ourselves.

Tripping on Craftsy: A Week in the Bag

Day 6 It’s been a few decades since I left Alberta, but here I am — waking up hungover in Janelle’s stock room. The past few days have been a crazy ride all over Canada with some of the sweetest, most talented sewists and bloggers up here in the Great White North. I’ve dragged you […]

The Great Canadian Craftsy Bag Tour

Welcome to the beautiful city of Montreal. Bienvenue à Montréal, la plus belle ville du monde, in my opinion. (I didn’t need a translator to write that, in case you were wondering.) We’re kicking off a whirlwind road trip across our great country, and if you hang with us all the way to the end, there […]
