The thing about glitter is if you get it on you, be prepared to have it on you forever. Glitter is the herpes of craft supplies.

Playing with Memories

Took a run out to Mahone Bay yesterday with some family for a girls Sunday drive. Dropped into Old Maders Warf Emporium while we were there and fell in love with the collection of antique toys. 

My favourite was this circa 1940's Spears Picture Stitching game. 

Filled with gorgeous vintage pictures for kids to further embellish with stitching! 

How sweet is that? Wanted it for my ever growing sewing memorabilia collection...  

Maybe on my next trip out.

Tied Shoelaces

Third Street is doing its part to combat the untied shoelace epidemic that has long plagued childhood. Stitched laces, embroidered with a uniform straight stitch   and a relatively steady hand, are guaranteed to remain tied throughout the most vigorous play times. And these shoes won't get stuck in the mud causing you to have to walk home in a socked foot, much to your Mom's dismay. 

Now, if only we could stitch laces to our actual children's tootsies.

To Sew or Not to Sew

Sewing makes me happy. It makes me feel good the way a cup of tea and a good book do. It is satisfying to the soul. So why don't i do it more often? Why do we so often let the things that make us feel complete become forgotten or set aside. Same could be said about my writing and this gravely neglected blog. But that message would merely be redundant in this format. I am sorry for that. For the multiple sorries. Sorry. 

Yup. That about sums it up. 

Maybe next time I'll have some pictures of something awesome I've sewn.
