I am so excited to be part of a Canadian Artisan Feature over at Little Wool Maus! Stop by her lovely blog to read more about natural family living, motherhood, delicious recipes and amazing sewing projects. She just gave birth to her second baby, so exciting! She also wrote about her Sewfunky Sling when she had her first baby, such beautiful pictures!
This is the time of year where I get organized for upcoming shows, just 5 weeks until Stitch ‘n’ Kitsch! Hard to image we are that close to Spring, I’m so excited! I’m picking out so many new fabrics for bonnets and sweet dresses! There is also a bunch of new sling prints available for 2012 with more to come. Just waiting to hear back from another show I applied to.
We also have lots of excitement in our own backyard, now that the foundation has been mended we can start some serious gardening. Last summer our whole garden was chaos and concrete, with many hours of digging, jackhammering, wheelbarrowing to make it ready to move forward. Now with a dry basement our gardening ideas are no longer on hold. Herbs, lettuce, kale, tomatos, peas and radishes, so excited! I hope my irises and strawberries survived being in pots all winter!
Yesterday we finally restocked all the Baltic Amber Necklaces, lots to choose from – and more are arriving next week, matching necklaces for Mama and baby bracelets/anklets too! They go fast, so if you have a teething baby send me an email!
Well I’m off to sew, trying to get the jump on Spring, it will be here before you know it!

Well i hope this really means I can put away all the mittens, hats, scarves and snowsuits of six people for good.. what spring does mean is that I get to follow my 4 year old around the block 27 times a day on her tricycle, who’s to argue, it’s been a long winter!
I have been working very hard lately making slings for all those spring babies 🙂 This weekend is the Stitch ‘n’ Kitsch show in Waterloo and I will have three mermaids and three Waldorf dolls, bags, spring dresses & bonnets and of course slings 😉 This also means I will not be sleeping all week as I have been swamped with work lately. So if you see me there, I will be the girl with the big bags under her eyes drinking a peppermint mocha.
Here are some newer slings available on the website.. I had to use my sad old mannequin for lack of my own baby for modelling..haha You can see all of the new stuff here :

aww look at me at stitch n’ kitsch! I had so much fun that day, but i was soooooooo tired, beleive me! I did not sleep all friday night for fear of having to bring naked dollies and mermaids..haha
BUt it was an amazing day, I met so many creative artists and made trades for great crafty stuff. I got to hang out with my lovely friend Emily who makes the best pottery and got a big hug from her mom who I haven’t seen in years and I love her so much.
I met an wonderful super nice midwife who is such a talented artist and got to talk lots of cool birthy stuff with her. She makes beautiful stained glass necklaces with silk and pretty paper, I was so lucky to trade her one for my daughter Raven. http://www.flickr.com/photos/abigailcorbin
I also traded for acorn dolls and crochet cupcakes from emily that i went to highschool with and a super cool patchwork knitting bag with wooden handles made by Kathy, she is the best! Thanks to everyone who came out and it was so nice to see so many people interested in baby wearing. And thank you for letting me be a guest at your show, it was an honour to be with so many crafty people!
