This summer flew by! I’ve been kind of slow on the crafting, but with fall in the air, I’m back at it! Here are a couple of arm warmers I made using rose-coloured yarn, some old buttons and a rosebud applique.

We are in the midst of a warmer than usual winter! Why not go out there and enjoy it! Skating is a great way to get some exercise, enjoy the great outdoors and have some fun!
The Natrel Ice Rink at Harbourfront Centre, Toronto is a great place to skate for free! You can skate the day away to music (satellite radio all week) and live DJ sets (on the weekend).
To make my skates look a little stylish and fun, I created pom poms out of black yarn and tied them onto the last loop of lace. A little throw back. For directions on how to make a pom pom, check this video out: make a pom pom

This is my old friend Miguel, I call him my “home slice”
Miguel, together with his gorgeous wife Sara announced they were expecting a baby …
A few months later I took some holiday time in Cuba. I brought with my one ball of tangerine-coloured yarn and a crochet needle. And got to work on a baby blanket.
I completed the blanket and received many compliments from
beach goers to passengers on the plane. What I loved most about this blanket was that I brought it back and it smelled like the ocean and the sun and beach.
A few months later i’m happy to report my blanket found a home, nestled around Miguel and Sara’s newborn.
