Winter Woolies - Layer it on!

New goodies for sale!!!
These are all made from upcycled wool sweaters.
It's getting a little cold here in NS and the time has come to break out the woolies. I'm one of those people that is Always cold and wearing in a million layers.
A girl can't have too many fun mittens and this year it's also going to be arm warmers.

If you can't wear wool next to your skin, just throw a pair over your
l/s tee or thin knit sweater.
There is no such thing as too many layers!!!

As always, you can find these beauties at
Love Me Boutique on Birmingham st
or you can send me an e-mail to place an order.

Handmade Nation

Thanks to Chara At Love Me Boutique, I spent a most enjoyable evening at the Atlantic Film Festival
I'm not really much for the theatre but I had to go check this out.
Handmade Nation

"It brings the indie craft scene to the big screen. Long-time crafter and first-time filmmmaker, Faythe Levine, sets out to document the DIY movement sweeping the nation.

She Travels across the USA, interviewing dozens of artists, crafters and designers who are embracing the marriage of historical techniques with punk sensibilities and the DIY ethos. Together, they form a growing community that is spreading an appreciation of handicraft and inspiring a whole new generation to do it themselves."

Hey, That's Me!!!!!!! I've been inspired.
For anyone who is doubting themselves about their choice to do it themselves, build a
small business and make a living doing it; you have to see this documentary.
You'll definately be inspired.
Check out this site for more information.

The Tide Came In.

Have you ever really watched the tide come in? It's kinda neat. You can actually see it rolling in.
I took a little (we had no plans)road trip last week and ended up in South Maitland just at the right time to watch the magic.

It was only a matter of minutes and the sand disappeared.
I can't believe I've never done this before.
You can even go Tidal Bore rafting. That'll be another post.
If you haven't been to the Bay Of Fundy to check this out, you don't know what you're missing.

This picture doesn't do it any justice; the colors are much more vibrant and happy.

You have to check out Lindsay's site and then hit Love Me to pick up your own signed copy. They don't carry prints of everything, but there are some other really cool street scenes to choose from.
Here's a little bitty of some other things she's done.

I've been slacking!!!!

I know I've been slacking in the bloggidy department.
We finally had a stretch of nice weather, my fiance Big Mac came home from the Wild West and I've got a really Big project (and of course a bunch of little ones) on the go.
Not much time for sewing or blogging with all this sun. (yes I'm in Nova Scotia and Yes, it is raining today)

I'll try to be a better host and post more often. I've got some fun pics to share this week.
I hope you are all having as great a summer as I am.
check back soon. Jen
