Settling in…

Well, John and I have moved into our new house in Kitchener and we’ve been enjoying settling in, that’s for sure! I’m very lucky to have my dream kitchen for cooking and baking and a lovely new sewing space! Let the fun begin! Of course it feels very grown up to own a home. It’s fun to have a space to make our own though and it’s coming along nicely…

We back onto a woods so I think I will have a lot of inspiration while sewing and cooking in years to come…

Yes, that’s Lady Fia. Her brother and her have enjoyed lots of time with us already…IMG_6387 IMG_6535 IMG_6556

The cookbooks are unpacked too and we’ve been enjoying the open concept layout to cook up some tasty treats…

Our house is a bungalow with a walkout, finished basement which has a perfectly gorgeous sewing space. There was no question I’d set up in front of the fireplace and overlooking the woods…IMG_6635 IMG_6636 IMG_6638

I’m fairly set up now and am looking forward to sewing something over the weekend! Of course I have a sweater I need to be knitting for the Toronto Knitter’s Frolic in a couple of weeks. Check out the show here. I’ll be there working with the Needle Emporium.

Knitter’s Frolic

It was an early morning today! Up at 5 to meet at the Needle Emporium. I was helping with Julie’s booth at the Downtown Knit Collective’s Knitter’s Frolic at the Japanese Cultural Centre. If you haven’t been before it is well worth the trip. This year Julie featured the new Mrs. Crosby yarn. It comes in 5 weights and Julie has it first in the world! The names of the yarn are travel themed so Julie planned a baggage carousel idea with old fashioned trunks and cases. It was a lovely set up!…

The yarn itself is dreamy and I got to touch many samples today. Everyone loved this cute hat that was done it two colours of the fingering weight. Find it on Ravelry, called Anemone or click here.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t stay the whole day because we had already planned to take Lady Fia to see a Dora play at the Randolph Theatre in Toronto. It was well worth it and she loved it! See the before and after pics in the car lol!! She’s way too precious and beautiful…

The Madeline Tosh was flying off the shelves; it sure is tasty! You have to knit with it at some point.

It was also very nice to meet a few blog readers in person! Thank you for saying hi.

I’m so very tired now and my legs are super achy. Time for a quick dinner and off to bed.
