East Bay Yarn Crawl

Last Saturday, Molly and I joined an East Bay yarn crawl, and visited four shops in one day! While it was far more laid back than a visit to Stitches West, it was still quite a journey, and I took many photographs along the way. Most of them look like this:

This post should probably actually be called, "Photographs of Molly in craft shops."

Puppy Hat

My manager is going on maternity leave starting next week, and a while ago I had promised to make her a puppy hat for the baby boy she will be meeting soon.

Right now, her only baby is her own dog, Scruffy; I tried to match his white colouring and very dark eyes, but I am no dog expert.

Easy Paper Garland

A very long time ago, I posted this short bit about sewing on paper, but yesterday I made a paper garland for our long weekend BBQ celebrations, and took a bunch of photos along the way.

I made this one out of red and white papers and stuck a bright blue square in the middle, to celebrate both Canada Day and Independence Day!

This is a super easy project, though it does require some time, depending on how large you want to make it. You can use any paper, really, even printer paper, but decorative scrapbook paper or cardstock is more durable.

Difficulty level: Easy
Time commitment: 1-2 hours


  • Paper (I used 6 sheets of 12"x12" cardstock)
  • Ruler
  • Scissors or paper punch
  • Matching thread
