In honour of having Saturdays off Alex and I headed to the St. Lawrence Market and got some meat, cheese, and fresh produce - yum! I've got both yellow and green zucchini waiting for me and I'm thinking I'll make some more spiced zucchini bread. We're also planning on heading to St. Jacobs to check out the market, antiques, and maybe I'll find some Mennonite quilts too! We'll also be going to the Shaw Festival (probably the first weekend in October) to check out some plays and to hopefully see some beautiful fall colours in Niagara-On-the-Lake. Now doesn't NOT working on Saturdays sound awesome?! Yes, I think it does! Today I spent the day watching old episodes of Ancestors in the Attic and hand piecing a new project (which I will be sharing very soon)!

I thought I'd post this picture because there are never any pictures of me from crafty events (since I'm always taking pictures). This is Katherine, Melody, and I at the friendship bracelet party that Karyn hosted at The Workroom in honour of Lizzy's visit to Toronto (I blogged about it here). Doesn't Karyn take lovely photographs? She has a super-spiffy camera but trust me - that girl is all kinds of talented! I kinda want to be Karyn when I grow up...does that sound weird?
I also wanted to let y'all know that I added a few destash bundles to my Etsy Shop in an effort to raise money to have my sewing machine fixed and tuned up and to put away to help pay the bills in case my job interview doesn't pan out. I still have a few more to add - including some Flea Market Fancy and Mendocino - but here are a few that I added last week:
I'll add the rest of the fabric over the next couple of days to a week! If you purchase something and mention in your "note to seller" that you found the destash through my blog I'll throw a couple of extra fabric-type goodies into your package!
