A reality show I may enjoy?

I'm just tuning into Kirstie Alley's Big Life. This could turn into something I will be quickly ashamed of. But we'll see.

So Saturday, I went to Farmer's Market in Dartmouth. Despite running on no sleep, and being up at 5.30 on a Saturday (durr) it was FUN. The people were really nice. It was fairly busy, but not crazy. I sold a bag, and a coffee cozee, and I have to say, it was really exciting and gratifying. I got a lot of really good feedback on my work, which was awesome! I love people telling me I do great work, and my things are just gorgeous (no lie!! That was from CTV's weather lady). And you know me, people telling me I'm great is just about my favorite thing in the world.

Here's the table. Lovely view, I know. If you look on the right hand side, you'll see my card holder, which is just a kid magnet (most of them were under control though. He was only molested once).

(I really should have ironed that table cloth. Ma would be unimpressed). Turns out my sister is a natural salesperson, which means she has to come with me all the time now. That enamel tin was full of gumdrops. Marcia suggested maybe people didn't want to eat them because they weren't individually wrapped. She's probably right, and next time I'll bring werther's or something that people won't be afraid of ohmygodgermsgermsifIeatthatI'llgettheplaggggueee. There was an old guy who ran by twice, all ninja like, and nabbed some. God love him. He kept me from just eating them all myself.

My messy messy sewing room. (The plant isn't dying, it just likes to be dramatic).I seem to be in the middle of many projects. In good news, I won't be cutting anything new out for a while. (Even thought that makes me a little sad, because I have some pretty fabulous ideas, but that's okay. I'll get this done first and then doughnuts!!).

This will soon be something very very awesome with the addition of some 6" zippers. Pattern courtesy of Lia's Space ( with a little of my own tweaking. Wait and see; all I'm saying is I'm excited :D.

And since I keep saying I need to start making my own clothes, I picked this up last week. I will get to it before the summer, cause it will be an oh so awesome skirt. It made me realize that this is the first pattern I've purchased since gr.9 home ec. Weird, yes? Next up: pants. And then: sock monkey Hallowe'en costume. Oh yes, it will be mine.


  1. A natural salesperson eh? Think I should make a career change?
    It's true on all counts - Trudy's stuff is fabulous and a good time was had by all.

  2. Also true: Criss Angel really is a douchebag.
