Finally, some new work!

I've been making these collaged pouches. I really enjoy free motion stitching!

Andy had a haircut

Isn't his lion tail cute?

(Ray cut his hair -- it's a zillion degrees here, so we're all a bit hot)

Yard Sale finds

Well, I've not been making much art, but I have found some interesting things at yard sales!
What do you think of this hole punch? I pretend that it is an electricity switch and every time I turn it on, Mr B shivers in convulsions. heeheehee. It takes so little to amuse us...

First you set the gauge to the width of the paper (it is 6" -- see the 6 in the little window?)

Then you slide the paper in and press

2 perfectly spaced holes punched every time!

Yes, so little to amuse me.... Hey, it was only 50 cents! Now I need to find some kind of project that uses lots of 2 hole punched cardstock......

Well, I'm back from the cool north (thanks, D&D!)

I don't complain about the heat very often but the heat here is almost unbearable (I'm a heat lover -- I'm almost always cold). I'm puttering around -- organizing, but not really feeling much like being creative. I'm having a yard sale on Saturday. Lots of junk to sell. Sorry, junque to sell..... so I'm doing a lot of sorting.

How hot is it? -- well, today will be 37c -- that's 97f!!! and with the humidity taken into account, it will be over 47c -- that's 117f! YIKES. And I have no AC. I do have fans though.

Off now to the cool basement -- to organize my Christmas ornaments, then to organize the studio. Mostly because I need the large work table for my yard sale :)

Finally, summer!

I made some thank you cards. They are a bit simple -- but very effective, I think :) The photo is a bit blown out due to the brilliant sunshine that we've been having lately!

Happy Canada Day!

If it's Canada Day, I'm on the island! (That would be Centre Island in Toronto).

The Dominion Day Regatta is held here annually and we go every year to watch Lauren row. Tomorrow she rows in London. Hey! I've turned into a hockey mom! Go Lauren!
