Well winter is finally here.. days of between -25 and -47c this morning with the wind chill... arghhh.. don't think my feet will ever be warm   Had 2 glorious days off and worked thru alot of random things on my list.. was wonderful to feel like I had some time to myself.. no painting or anything up on Etsy but am set up for painting and have pics ready to do the write ups for but  there was things that needed to be done first..shows to send applications for, gallery fees to be paid,  covers sewn for the change table .. I didn't want Chaya to feel that the baby was getting so many new things so I made pj's for her barbies.. they are not the best.. haven't made barbie clothes since my girls were small.. soooo piddly but fun..can see this using up alot of scraps in the
My daughter's best friend's due date is the week before hers.. so here's the baby blanket I just finished for her first baby.. I am just finishing the edging on the one for our new baby so should have pics in a couple of days...

I got the newsletter for the new Our World Our Art, so excited about it.. I stumbled on a link for the One World One Heart at one time.. and had so much fun checking out all the blogs.. and seeing all the beautiful art out there... can hardly wait.. just thinking about what to do for it....Hope I am jump started by blah these days.. you know it's bad when you're dreaming about work and where you're going to move things for inventory on saturday.. lol That nightmare will be over by saturday night though... Yay!!!!
I did get a chance to hit the thrift shop on the weekend though... got some cool things...
I know... Yay!! more stash!! lol just couldn't pass them up...
Anyways.. Hope it's warmer there than here.. should start getting ready for work... Have a loverly day! and thanks for stopping by...


  1. Adore the baby blanket! New grand coming my way on Tuesday !! The pjs are sweet - made me smile this morning thinking about all of those sessions of creating Barbie outfits - so many years ago!! Winter here in Victoria too...

  2. Morning Kath
    Snow is coming, rained here a couple days ago and now it is slippery everywhere.
    Love all the new items. I used to make my own barbie doll clothes when I got old enough to sew on the machine, brings back memories for me too. How fun.
    Sounds like you got lots done....the list is getting smaller?????
    Take care, good to see you posting....Les xo

  3. Oh, the dreaded "list", lol I can relate! The baby blankie is adorable, I'm sure it'll be a treasured heirloom for generations!

  4. Ugh, I hate when your feet get cold in the winter!! So horrible...that icy feet feeling is one of the worst. :)

    It sounds like you were able to get a lot of stuff crossed off of your list, which is awesome!! Those Barbie pajamas are fantastic, by the way, and the baby blanket is simply gorgeous. What a wonderful gift, I'm sure they'll love it!! <3

    So awesome about the thrift store stuff, too. I bet you'll make those finds look fantastic!! <3
