Lakeside yarn crawl!!


Hello Everyone,

The Lakeside Yarn Crawl is officially underway,  and I am thrilled to be a
part of it,  just to let you know how this fantastic yarn crawl works...just
click on the link below to get the whole story...

The June 30th post has the info.
There are also a couple of posts about what you will get when you go to some
of the shops!!

Plus, I have the passports here, and ready for you to pick up..just pop
on in,  get your Passport and free bag of lovely Maple Black, Maple Cream or
Maple Blueberry tea, pack up the car and head out on a summer adventure!
Personally, I cannot imagine anything more fun...summer days, new yarn
shops, lots of great yarn,  and at the end, when you hand in your completed
Passport? wow, a chance to win an incredible basket filled with enough
treasures to make any fibre artist swoon, lol!!

So, check  it out, get your Passport, take lots of photos to share and hit
the road!!
See you soon....

Canada Day celebration!!


What a great time we had, the weather didn't start out very well and we got a slow start, but the sunshine poked through, the awning went up and then out came all our incredible buntings!

I know there were well over a hundred of them, crocheted and knitted, decorated with flowers, in so many colours! It was amazing to see them unfold...took Jessie and I a few hours to crochet them all together...but the end result was terrific as you can see!


We hung buntings inside, we hung buntings outside, we hung them across the front door, and then we all settled in on our lawn chairs to knit, crochet, hook, and spin and felt! People stopped by and checked out what we were doing..the street was closed and that enabled people to just walk everywhere, enjoy a hot dog, watch the pie eating contest, try out the wet was just a terrific day all around!


I thank you all for coming out and spending your day with us, and for making all those "bunts"  (who knew that was what they are called? lol!)....and a belated Happy 147th Birthday Canada!!!

Happy Knitting,
