The sound of my snoring dog

It’s not a sound I hear very often during the day, the sound of a snoring dog. That’s not to say my dogs don’t snore. They do. A lot. It’s more that it is never quiet enough around here to hear them with two kids running around, and some kind of background noise (music, singing,...

A New Kind of Sewing

Way back in August while sitting in a friend’s backyard (most likely enjoying a beverage or two) and watching our 4 kids run, jump and play, I decided to join an instagram paper piecing swap. I love swaps. I had only done one before, but I love the idea of them and trying new things...

Family Photos

For the forth year in a row, we had our family photos done at Centennial Park here in Thunder Bay. We’ve always done them at the end of September, and this year was no different (well, only slightly as it *was* October 2nd). I really love doing these photos at the same time and the...

2016 Goals Update

Way back in January, I laid out some goals for the year. Within a few months, most were tossed out the door as that’s just what happens. After the craziness of the summer, I’m revisiting and reevaluating the goals to see what I can salvage for the rest of the year! 2016 Goals 1) Complete...

New Pattern – Finding my Sew-Jo!

I really like trying out new patterns. I don’t get a lot of time for it, but I enjoy it when I get the chance. Right now I have a stack of over a dozen new bag patterns to try plus a plethora of clothing ones to sew up. I’ve promised myself more time to...

My New Favourite Thing

Is it a blanket or scarf? This! This right here is my new favourite thing (at the moment). Is it a scarf? Is it a blanket? It’s BOTH! And okay, I get that I may be a few years behind the amazing trend of blanket scarves, but I’m caught up now and I’m loving it!...

FanExpo 2016… and all the fun!

Well, I am back from my trip home and FanExpo! Truthfully, I’ve been home for about two weeks now but it has taken me longer than expected to get back into the swing of life at home. Henry started school while I was away, so coming home meant jumping in to a whole new routine...

Shopping for Fabric on the East Coast

Sometimes I think it’s a compulsion.  If I’m in a new city, I need to find some local fabric stores. The first thing most people do (I assume) when they arrive in a new city, or plan a trip, is look up local attractions,  maybe some parks, but most definitely, they research local, active things...

February Wrap-Up (midway through March)

Well, it’s not exactly the beginning of the month, but I’m finally getting around to my February Wrap-Up post. AND, I promise I am working on posting more often. I have this weird need for all posts to be perfect, well-thought out/planned and something ‘worth’ writing about. Truth is, a lot of stuff I do...

I’m still here… just tired

I’m not entirely sure where the month of February has gone. I get it, it’s not over yet, but we’re very close to the end. This month has been a blur. A foggy, sleepy blur and I’m trying to muddle my way out before it drags March down with it too. Jayne has spent the...
