Yesterday my great friend and I spent the day at our favourite places in Prince Edward County. We ate our lunch on a picnic table at a deserted Sandbanks Provincial Park watching the gulls dive bomb West Lake,
saw some outstanding photography, ate our last Kawartha dairy cone of the summer and finished off with the best cappucino for miles.
Below are some new things to come out of the studio. The first mittens of the season–they are made from recycled 100% wool sweaters and lined with recycled woollen scarves. As well, the first zippered tote. I’ve been wanting to make one for a while–and I think this is perfect. I’ve stacked up some fuschia and bright blue leather for the next ones! Meanwhile this tote and several pairs of mittens are available at Bookhou–and I will be there tomorrow hooking on my giant rug from 2:00-5:00.
Hi Christine: Just wanted to stop in again and say that my darling little French fabric pouch has arrived. I do love it and imagine myself walking through the streets of Paris with it.
Also looking forward to my trivet kit arriving by mail since Toronto is too far from Texas to attend a workshop. Again, my imagination will come into play as a distant workshop participant.
Very much appreciate your responsiveness to my requests for the kits and the little pouches.
thank you so much Amanda! it is wonderful to hear from you.
I will be making the kits this week and will let you know when yours are on their way.
ps I will send instructions from the workshop and will post photos on the blog.
The mitts look lovely – will you have these at a local show?
Also, I just wanted to let you know that I love my red purse – it is in full use now and the perfect size for what I carry. Of course the feel of the leather is the thing but really the inside organization really suits me – just enough of a pocket etc.
Thanks again, and hope you do well in TO
So glad to know that the red purse is fitting your needs.
Yes, the mittens will be available at a local show in November. They are so cozy.
Think it’s time for another coffee at Miss Lily’s–maybe after Thanksgiving??
love to catch up again – hope you have a good Thanksgiving – the weather is so lovely right now.
