All’s Quiet…

I’ve been MIA for quite some time! Fall is always a busy time for me and this year even moreso than ever. I’ve got baskets full of yarn just waiting to be transformed into something sweet, and not nearly enough hours in a day… Here’s a few snaps of orders I’ve filled lately, while trying to create some stock for an upcoming market.

The most wonderful time of the year…

Hello friends! I know I’ve been quiet for a long while … Now that craft market season is officially in full swing my hands have been very busy whipping up plenty of Smash Knits gear just waiting to to be worn!

Come visit me this upcoming Sunday, November 17th, at the Crescentwood Community Centre. I’ll be sharing a table with Creative Authority, who has lots of lovely lil’ baby and mama items for you to fawn over.

The venue is located at 1170 Corydon Avenue and the event runs from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.  Admission is free. Christmas is only 40 days away! Here’s a sneak peek at what will be in store…

Sewing? What’s that?

I haven’t been doing much of it lately … unless we count the 30 second baby blanket I whipped up the other day. Nope, my time has been strictly all knitting, all the time. A lil’ crochet, too. I know I’ve mentioned it a few times, but the 1st annual Winnipeg Etsy Street Team Handmade & Vintage Sale is a mere 14 days away! Wahoo! So I’ve been gearing up for that, along with some photo-shooting on the side for my shop … here’s a glimpse :)

Certainly looking forward to the New Year when I can get back into sewing more seriously … and for that matter, my New Year’s resolution is to sew more selfishly! Yes, I am aware I attempted that for this year but … all I can do is keep trying :)

Sneak Peek!

After a busy long weekend enjoying the weather, family, and a whole lotta canning (more on that later!), I’ve got some photos to share. As a result of a great evening photo shoot with friends, the shop is loaded up with goodies for fall! Here are a few snippets … love them! :)

And we’re off … to a slow start.

The Minoru Jacket Sew-a-Long that I’ve mentioned a few times starts TODAY over at Sewaholic.I have been chomping at the bit for this to start ever since I received my pattern in the mail back in late November. Buuuuuut, I left it to the last minute to select my fabric, and as a result didn’t make it to the store this weekend and am as such currently sans fabric to cut out tonight. Continue reading
