Well hello there faithful readers. I know it has been a while, but here in Ottawa we have been doing a bit of hibernating as temperatures have dipped below -30 more often than I think I am equipped to deal with!
I wasn’t able to get much crafting done in the first part of the month as I spent an entire week sick in bed, too sick to go to my craft room…that is SICK! Not that the time was entirely wasted. I did teach myself how to crochet a granny square and have since made quite a few as well as starting a blanket project. I realized it was time to start using up some of my vast yarn stash so I took out all my worsted weight yarns in greens, blues as well as tan and grey and decided to start a blanket made to look like a simple topographical map of an island. I have made it out to sea, but ran out of navy yarn, so I need to buy some more yarn.
It have another baby blanket on the needles in a aqua and white basket weave at the moment as well, so anyone I know who gets pregnant in the next year is in for a treat 🙂
I did finally kick the cold to to curb a week ago which was a very good thing. Besides the obvious lack of coughing, I got an email from the Trend Arlington Community Association to let me know that Feb 2nd, they were having a garage sale/craft market at the Community Centre. I happy applied for and got a table, so now I had something to get making jewelry for!
I am still pretty hooked on my Rainbow Jump Rings, so I made a few really neat bracelets with those.
I also made a number of really pretty earrings in cut glass and glass pearl.
I didn’t bring my full set up from the Christmas Show, just my Eiffel Tower for Necklaces, my earring case and a tray for bracelets.
At first the turn out was great! Sadly it started to snow pretty heavily and it slowed down, but I still had a great show and made lots of sales! I can’t wait to do another one!
I also have a number of new items now to put up on my Etsy site, which will be my plan for this weekend.
Till Next Time!
