Remember these? A great blogger Bella Dia found these at a thrift shop, scanned them and is sharing them for printing and lacing! I've put together 2 kits with yarn and a needle for 2 little girls - hope they like them! Now I'd like to find some little boy figures for lacing for my little guy!

Taa daa! Here is my setup at Laura's House (home of the 10th annual Littlest!). We always have so much fun at this sale. I see folks that I don't see in town all year long, just at Littlest! I'm realizing that I've got a few regulars too that come to see what I've got each year which is nice. Here you can see my bundles of baby change blankets in the left fore ground, men's and women's t-shirts in the fabric "box" at centre and my rack of shoulder bags, quilty bags, market bags and aprons! The drawer from Finn's dresser is on end to show off the baby quilty pants and give my setup some "height" - setups are a learning experience and luckily I've got some friends that are pros and full of good tips! It was a great day - despite the minus 30C temperatures, we still had a big turn out!

Taa daa! I had so much fun making this fabric house for a certain little girl in Guelph! I can't take the credit for the design, I found it on a Mom's blog called UK lass in the US. The hardest part was to make a decision about the fabrics to choose - next time I want to do an orange shag rug with terry cloth and psychadelic wall paper or something! There is no limit to what to make - garage, barn, firehall, grocery store, pet store...!

My last four buckets before Christmas for Knit Now, the local yarn store. My first batch is practically gone and I've run out of canvas to make more. These are really nice, sturdy buckets, originally made this summer for the Greenhouse store. The more I make them the more I like them! The straps unbutton to wrap around and make a nice little packet, once you figure out how to fold them.
