We're Back At It...

How has everyone been? Got all the spring planting done? {Or the autumn clean up if you live below the equator =) } Vancouver is starting to show signs of summer approaching ~ lots of flowers & shrubs in full bloom, fresh veggies are beginning to appear at the local markets... Personally, I'm super excited for the fresh berries... strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, cranberries... Yu-ummm!!

The past few weeks has seen us busy putting together an application to our first-ever juried show ~ Make It! Vancouver Holiday Market. The market is moving to the PNE from The Croatian Cultural Centre and we find out this Monday who the vendors will be. Fingers & toes are crossed... Here are some of the fruits of our labours~

The 'Octagons & Squares' hasn't had a lot of attention recently due to the other preparations going on... now we can go back to hookin' on it... gotta make sure it's ready to travel to Alberta with us next month...
The yarn for our next afghan project is waiting patiently in a corner of The Studio for its turn at the I-9 hook and it's been tagged by a lady to keep those Northern chills off when she's curled up with the family to watch movies...
