I hopped in the car, ensured there was enough gas in case I got lost and could not find a station, turned on the GPS and was off to find St. Jacob's Market. I spoke about that in a previous post so I won't bore you with my adventure there again. It was fun though just looking and getting out and trying to get back to the car before it started to rain again. I ended up getting lost on my drive home but I did stumble upon a Chapters. I love looking at Chapters and could all day there.
But Sunday I spent the day trying to make a new style of slippers and they turned out great! Thanks to a movie marathon and a great deal of rain, I did not give up until I had it! I will be posting pictures soon to www.2muchyarn.etsy.com later , so please take a look a little later!
So that's my weekend, how was your?
Keep on Hook'n

I went on an adventure around town last night. Boy was it exciting! I don't think I have ever been so lost in my life! I was looking for this yarn store that my parents brought me to. It was the best yarn store I have been to in a while.
I was in Yarn heaven. Carefully I selected the yarn I wanted when I was there but it was time for me to head back and pick up some more yarn. My parents are out of town at some Fire Chief conferences, So I am all alone in the city and have had to muddle my way around finding things! I needed new colours and types of yarn and my best friend, http://www.thehookery.etsy.com/ (check her shop out) was in need of some too! She knows I am always up for an excuse to the yarn store.
I map quested the directions and put them in to my GPS and got there with out a hitch! But getting home was a whole other story! I figure plug HOME into the GPS would get me there and I was right but I did not want to sit in traffic So I started driving and figured the GPS would change routes! BOY was I wrong. Problem with with this area is that it is under constant constructions. Between all the stimulus road construction and all the new developments I was driving on roads that did not exist in my GPS! But I found a street I recognized and drove until I kinda knew where I was.
Needless to say I got home okay with lots of yarn, 2Much in fact. (Okay I had too) So I have some great projects to get to this weekend.

I found Concord through a Buy 'N replace that I am in and I just love her soap! So soapy and fabulous smelling! Fast shipping and she is great working with! Check out her shop. My favorite is the vanilla sugar but a good one for the man of the house is the Pine one. http://www.concordsoap.etsy.com/

We got some great food, meat, fruits and veggies for great prices. They have all kinds of things there. You name you can find it. There are great homemade butters, I love the maple butter. If you are in the Kitchener/Waterloo area I would suggest that you make a visit to St. Jacobs.
Its great for the bargin hunter. I got two leather belts for 10$. They are beautiful belts and you could never buy a belt in a store for that!
We hit a few clothes store up. I am slowing shrinking away so it was time for some new tops. But I think the most fun of the day was driving to a little town called Millbank, Ontario. What a beautiful little town. Susan was on a hunt to find a new table , counter height. We found this store http://www.millbankfamilyfurniture.ca/ and it had some gorgeous pieces. Not just tables but beds and hutches and anything else you can dream up in wood. They were very nice in the store and took time to help my parents find what they want.
It was a riot, the only down fall there was no creating time ..LOL... I love to craft but these adventures are worth it. Memories right? There will always be time to crochet. We are back on the table finding mission again. I will keep y'all posted!
Keep on Hook'n!

I Love this key chain holder. In fact I have two on my own key chain! They are perfect for cell phones or in a run out to the ice cream store at 10pm, it will hold your Licence and cash! What more can you ask for!
I made this coasters for my Aunt Linda. But loved them so much that I thought I would post them on Etsy! They are perfect for a back yard party or even for your living room!
The drive was nice and short. Nothing like fridays trip which was way to long! Hope all you Canadians enjoyed your long weekend.
I will check in and post some pics of new things this week!

I will be posting some great photos soon. Well, when I get to taking some of all my stuff. I think that's the one things I hate doing because its the most time consuming but with any on line store you need to have photos. Plus i do love sharing what I create!
