happy international women's day

happy international women's day. i am thankful for the rights i enjoy as a woman in canada and for all the women who continually fight for those rights for women and girls all over the world. and not to make light of it, but i am also really glad i have the choice to wear pants if i want.

warming up

spring is on the way. it's a beautiful sunny day - the perfect opportunity to practice a bit with the camera. the rainy, overcast days have been a great chance to get re-aquainted with my grandmother's sewing machine and there's quite a little stockpile of pouches and bags gathering here in my studio. i'm gettting warmed up to re-launching my etsy shop.

happy making

i almost kissed the postie when she delivered this yesterday. a few weeks ago i was checking out lotta jansdotter's site and saw on her new ledger that she has a contest to see what people will make with her fat quarter pack from her echo fabric collection. the cotton is great quality, the designs and colours gorgeous. what to make for the contest? how can i possibly cut into this fabric? my sketchbook is full of so many ideas...

packaging is lovely too - 'happy making' indeed.
