I'm back from the market and it was fun.
Kind of a plain way to start a post but I'm at a bit of a loss for words for some reason tonight. I think it's because all I can think about is the lasagna rolls I made for dinner. There's plenty leftover for my lunch tomorrow and I want to eat it now.
Ok back to the market. FOCUS. Bloomin' Earth took place in Kitchener, Ontario -- which is, as I mentioned in the last post is about an hour west of Toronto. That is of course depending on what time you leave during the day :)
Mark came with me which I always think is cute. He just hangs out with me at my table and he even helped make a sale... I think I'll keep him. Now, this was a real market. There were LOADS of veggies and fruits in one corner, while the street and a little piazza type area were closed off to more than 60 crafty vendors. My table was beside a lovely woman originally from El Salvador who makes jewelry; on the other side were crafters who made girls' skirts, dresses, reusable zip locks snack pack bags and burp cloths that say "Spit Happens." So cute.
It was nice getting out of the house and chatting with other people who sew. The women I met do this for their living while they stay at home with their kids which I just think is amazing.
I do have some things leftover (mmm leftover lasagna rolls), so I took a boat-load of photos this week and uploaded them up into my shop. Feel free to have a look-see.
On another subject: What are you up to this weekend? I'm not afraid to tell you that it's my birthday on Saturday. I don't make as much of a big deal about it as I used to. I think it's because I'm starting to forget how old I am. For example, a few weeks ago someone asked me how old I was and I started with "Twenty..." and my husband looked at me like I was crazy. No I'm not in my twenties. Oooop. I'll be 33 in case you're wondering. My grandmother was kind enough to remind me with a little "33" sticker on the back of her card. Thanks Ma.
So this weekend I'll be having a couple dinners with friends and family. One thing I did request for my birthday dinner is to have a pizza party. So there will be a whole lot of homemade pizzas consumed this weekend. This is my heaven.
Take care and have a great weekend. Have a slice or two for me.

Yes... I've disappeared for quite sometime. I'm not going to tell you I've been busy. But I have been sewing in that time away. I don't have any proof though because I didn't make time to take pictures... but I will.
Tomorrow I'm heading to Kitchener, Ontario (a little over an hour West of Toronto) for the Bloomin' Earth market. I have several totes and zip pouches ready to go in bags by the door. So if you're in the area be sure to stop by. But if not, check back here for photos to come next week.
Happy Weekend y'all! Go on an adventure somewhere.

Usually the junk mail goes right into the bin, but this one just happened to be the perfect size for a zip pouch template :)
I'm sewing up a storm (kind of -- I should be sewing up more of a storm but my motivation is seriously lacking hence the infrequent posts around here) for Bloomin' Earth which is taking place in Kitchener, Ontario on April 24. Be sure to stop by (Waterloo peeps, I'm talking to you) if you're in the area!
(So is your bathtub embarrassing or what?)
