Weekend Fun!

What a great weekend. I was in Kitchener all by myself and had to come up with something to do over the weekend so I would not go stir crazy.

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 later , so please take a look a little later!

So that's my weekend, how was your?

Keep on Hook'n

Kitchener/Cambridge/Waterloo Adventure!

Good Morning Everyone! I just want to thank everyone who has followed me so far!

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, (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.

ETSY Shop!

I have been strolling through Etsy, window shopping lately, just looking for cute and different shops! I stumbled long and found this shop, . I fell in love right away, I need to tell you all about it!
There are a few cards in here I am going to pick up and give out over the next few months and maybe even as holiday jokes! The cards would make people smile by just reading the cover!

New Creations

Hey Guys! Well, living away from away has at least allowed me to create. Its about the only thing that keeps me sane some days! Wait it kept me sane even before I decided to move away to work. I have a ton of cotton here, so I trying to find different projects to get rid of it!

All I want to make are scarfs and hats as the upcoming cold season is coming. Trying to get ready for winter production is hard to do in this heat. But I crank the AC and get at it. I hope this winter will be my break through. I see some shops on Etsy and wish I could generate the sales they do. I keep at it though, I hope one day I can be a selling machine. Well here are some new items at . Hopefully you will find something for you or someone you love!

Long train Ride!

So I am back In Kitchener, Yes I went to Ottawa for the most hot and humid weekend yet this summer. YUCK! But at least I got to crochet on the train, even though I am not really suppose too! But how can one not do the craft/hobby that they love to do! So I have been crocheting slowly but surely to get all the orders done that have come in. I can't wait to ship them all off ! I will be adding items I hope every day! I have been working on winter warmers lately. As that time of year is coming.

But the one great thing today is that BBBB will be happening today instead of yesterday, which I would have missed! So hopefully tonight I will make some more sales which would be awesome! Hope everyone has a great day!

Keep on Hooking!

Sitting at the office!

So we did the shopping today! and No, that perfect table was not found yet. So while I wait for my parents to finish up quotes and specs for fire trucks , I decided to surf around the forums in Etsy and see what great items I could find. I did not search anything , just looked at avatars and the ones that peaked my interest I clicked on! Except for one.

This monster is from She is fabulous. Not only because she is my best friend and taught me how to crochet but she stuff is just fantastic. If you haven't seen her shop you most defiantly want to mark it for the up coming Christmas events. Her stuff is great for kids off all ages!

I found this shop and I loved this shirt. It made me think of my Hubby, Mr. Patrick! Who is currently obsessed with the Office! There are some other fabulous shirts and when I can make up my mind on what I am going to get some. They were just so awesome! I found this shirt at

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.

What A saturday!

So yesterday was a great and amazing little adventure in Kitchener. Susan and I woke up and headed out for a day of shopping! First we hit St. Jacobs Market (Here's the link to check it out)

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 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!

Sleeping In

While I have never been one to really sleep in,( I am happy if I get to 730) I was really kind of looking forward to it today but no. The internal alarm went DING DING DING at 615. I am never sure what to do on a Saturday morning at 630. I used to read but I am currently out of books, then I would try a movie but atlas all the movies are in Ottawa. So, I am really at a cross road.

On the cup 1/2 full of things though, at least I can work on my blog, crochet a bit, find some cute patterns and spend some quality time with Orlando, my dads Bird. He defiantly does not like me up this early and this bird has an attitude, that is for sure. He is chirping loudly right now and I sure he will wake up the rest of the house.

The other things about gettting up early is that I have lots of time to get ready and drinks of tea. Well i guess that is it for now.

Well I am at home. I am going to work more on my blog today but I will also be hook'n up a storm. I wonder what I will make today. I am on a cotton fix and I am loving making cotton projects. Whether it be coasters, keycahin cozies, or even dish cloths. I made my self some vanity saving bowls for my make-up, and maybe they will be a good idea on Etsy! I will have to figure something out. So many things to make, so little time!
