I've got something close to home to talk about today. Summer is a difficult time for most of Canada. We are fortunate enough to have so many different types of climates in our country, but the summer takes a toll on the more barren and desert-like areas. Right now there are hundreds of forest fires … Continue reading Help Fund-raise to Fight the Fires in British Columbia
Hey everyone. It's been a while (again). I feel like I owe a bit of an explanation to my horrendous lack of online activity lately. There really shouldn't be an excuse, but I needed a break. The last post I made anywhere was on May 18th, which was just over 3 weeks ago. I didn't … Continue reading Miss me? Here’s a quick little update on my life.
Hey everyone. It's been a while. Just about 5 months to be exact. I know I've lost a lot of you over the past few months, and for that I want to apologize. I have received every message, seen every comment asking for the next square, and I have been following along with your progress … Continue reading The Long Awaited Final Square in the Marvel Graphghan Blanket
Hello again, and happy December! Wow, we've made it almost to the end of 2016. I usually lose track of time this time of year. I've had a running "to-do" list since about the beginning of November with "Finish Marvel Squares" on there, and all of a sudden, woah it's December. Thankfully, I have them … Continue reading Marvel Square #8 – Scarlet Witch
Forgive me! I'm a little disorganized sometimes when it comes to following a schedule. There are only 3 squares left (2 after this one) and they will certainly be completed in time for you lovely people to complete your blankets by Christmas. I can't wait to see pictures of the finished product! One of the … Continue reading Another Marvel Square for you Patient People!
You might as well go to your local yarn store and buy a ton of yarn right now, because I can guarantee you will not be able to stop making these. For the longest time, crocheting triangles seemed impossible. I couldn't figure out how to make such a sharp point. It's honestly a little embarrassing … Continue reading Granny Square Triangle Scarf – Free Pattern!
For me, the beginning of the year starts in September. As a student and a dance teacher, everything starts again this month. After having July and August off from working and homework, September can be a bit of a stressful adjustment. Next week I will have my "last" first day of the year of university … Continue reading Hello, September
Funny story. I've been doing some serious reorganizing of my work space the past month. I needed to find a way to separate work from rest, so I decided it was time I make myself more of a "working area" within my home. Upon deciding this, many of my projects had to be packed away … Continue reading Marvel Graphghan Square #6 – Hawkeye
I'm back with everyone's favourite female assassin, Black Widow! This is a super easy grid and will be a nice break from all of the crazy colour changes we have been doing with graphghan squares in the past. Only two colours are involved in this one (can you guess?) and there should be very few … Continue reading Marvel Graphghan Square #5 – Black Widow
I have a love-hate relationship with custom orders. They are a fantastic opportunity to try out new patterns and learn new techniques. They are a pain from a business standpoint as they usually take longer to complete due to the learning component of a new pattern. This makes my profit margin quite low if I … Continue reading Perfect Puff Stitch Hexagons – Free Pattern!
