30.7.10

yesterday was a day of being able to tick things off my list - that is always a good feeling - I think I make lists because of the action of ticking things off. This weekend is a long weekend for us Canadians - I will try to finish another calendar that I am so excited about it. I can't wait to show you some peeks. It feels weird making calendars during the summer, but I need to be ready for the fall. I thought I would end the week with another giveaway. A lovely triangle print shoulder tote made out of a light coloured linen with a twill lining and a pocket on the inside. it's been pretty busy in the studio and this weekend I will try to eat bbq corn off the cob, take a long walk with my lovelies, eat fresh strawberries, and do lots of water colour painting. thank you for visiting and leaving a comment - I enjoy reading each of them. Have an amazing weekend!
*sorry forgot to mention - you have until 10 pm sunday august 1st to leave a comment. the winner will be announced on monday morning.

  8. Hello,
    This is my very first visit and I just fell in love with your work. I have looked at your "bookhou at home shop" and it is empty. Where can I buy some of your items ?
    Thank you :)

  12. I like the sound of your weekend. I arrived here via Resurrection Fern, via PurlBee, via Yarnstorm - and I'm very pleased I jumped from each of those stepping stones to the next, lots of beautiful things to look at and feel inspired by at each place.
    This weekend I'm hoping to go strawberry picking and make jam - and I have a long overdue hairdresser appointment which coincides with some knitting I must finish - it's a great way to fill the time while the colour works on my ever-increasing white hairs. (Though my guilty secret is that I like to look at the pictures in Hello whilst I'm there too).

  13. Thanks for reminding me to have some corn on the cob this long weekend. If I cook a steak beside it, it might warm up my husband enough to let me sign up for your letterpress workshop this fall. :)

    You know what, nevermind him. I'll sign up anyway.
