Anticipation

This weekend Mr. S. is going to do a renovation marathon and fix up the basement. This involves a lot of work. The "before" picture is non-existent; it's just too horrific (think 100 year old brick foundation walls with garish green paint peeling off...lovely....). The end result will be a craft space of my very own. I love him very much....

While he is slaving away, the babe and I will head down to the grandparents' in Niagara-on-the-Lake for a long-ish visit to keep away from paint fumes and such (a low VOC waterproofing paint is an oxymoron, but we did the best we could).

In-between all this I have another craft fair on Saturday - yay! It's the St. Albans Boys' and Girls' Club Annual Street Jam. Which is why my hands have been busy making more of these:


Fabric ready for beanbags! Making these is fun, simply to watch people wonder what they are as they weigh them in hand. The simple tactile pleasure always provokes a smile.

The only thing I regret is missing the TTC Knit-a-Long. What fun! I hope Toronto is overrun with knitters celebrating World Wide Knit in Public Day! Maybe I'll bring my needles to the fair :-)

Hooray for you!! Your own craft space!! It makes all the difference in the world, I'll tell you. You can leave out pleasing piles of colour and pattern and just drink it in...

...and your beanbag fabrics are really fun!!
