Skinny loom scarf

Here's another project from the bag of yarn Beth gave me. It only had two balls of this thick bamboo yarn, so I made a skinny scarf on my mini loom.
I like the colour combo. It's slim but still lovely!

Crafting for theatre

This past weekend my friend asked me to help make some paper flowers for a show that he's directing.
He wants a bunch of wisteria flowers hanging from the ceiling. I used a tutorial from the blog Land of Not (the link isn't working anymore). Here's a few that I made, it's going to look so lovely and dreamy.
I also used this post, which used just simple crepe paper, twisted every inch or so. It gives it a nice drapey feel.

Easter Treats

Here's what I gave to the kiddies this year. I saved some of the robin's eggs for myself :)
This was in addition to their easter egg hunt. A lot of sugar was consumed!
And here's what I made for the easter potluck: roasted asparagus and mushrooms with rosemary. Dee-lish! Hope everyone had a nice long easter weekend!

Easter Long Weekend

It's Easter! That means an extra long weekend! And treats!
These chocolate bunnies are restless...and nervous...and they should be!

A blurry picture to reflect my blurry morning. But great combination for a morning snack, huh??

Girlie baby things

Part two of this post - baby things for a baby girl! Here's my starting yarn again:
First a hat, which I free-styled in hdc:
Then some bow booties using this pattern, but without the bow:
And finally a heart using this pattern:
Pink set, all done!

"Same Boat"

Last weekend I was on Granville Island, on a boat. Not a real boat, sadly. But very soon, I WILL be on a boat - and in a short film called "Same Boat." It was written by my friend David C. Jones, and it's being produced by a new-ish film company in Vancouver, Ode. It's going to be a short film, only about 12 minutes long, but it should be fun! Me and my friend Cathy are playing musical lesbians!

Here's the link to our indiegogo campaign, if you feel so inclined to contribute. And here's a quick screen shot of the fun we had filming the promo video:
