Anyhow, I'm happy with it. The first one is always a learning curve right? Fabric is from Ikea. Linking up with The Needle and Thread Network today.

I pinned a card similar to these the other day, and decided to make them myself. So cute, the one on the left is for a friend of my daughter's. My girls go to a Francophone school, so her little friend is French. All stamps, die cuts, embossing folder and stamps are from Stampin Up!

I was in PEI last week and had a chance to visit a beautiful shop in Charlottetown called Emmett and Ellie's. The whole store is full of locally made products, and I found this awesome wood tray there (I think I need and intervention when it comes to buying wood trays and furniture, but I mean look at it, how could I leave it there?). I plan on filling it with greeting cards but for now have the list takers there that I made this week as well.
Grocery list takers & coupon organizerThe fair is on April 28th at the St. Mary's Boat club in Halifax (9-3). Hope to see some of you local readers there!

I bought some lovely cream Eco Wool at LK yarns last week and made this cowl with it. I used the Gap Tastic Cowl pattern found on Ravelry, but just made it 8 inches instead of 15 inches wide. I'm pretty short, so thought the extra big cowl might look a little funny on me. Just in time for a new scarf, today was a snow day and the temperature has been really cold!!

Robin's Egg Blue
Last night I returned to sewing some infinity scarves. These are the newest colors I have. I love the eggplant one, and the tangerine is screaming summer-which I am definitely ready to see the sun again. Today, it is peeking out for the first time in what feels like weeks! Linking up to Show and Tell Tuesday with Randi at i have to say.

So, it's hard to photograph this, but I was asked to make a black messenger bag that would fit a musical instrument, laptop, and other smaller items. It measures about 25 inches wide, so rather large! I used the same black fabric for the inside as well, put a zippered pocket on the inside, a zippered pocket on the flap, as well as 2 pockets in the lining. The back of the bag has one large pocket, and the strap is adjustable. I learned lots of new things on this bag, as well as figuring out a pattern since I couldn't find any the size I needed. Anyhow, hope this works out for the person who wants it!!
