When the sun shines and you get the thumbs up that the cottage road is fit for driving (and parking), there is only one thing to do.
The Porcupine Mall Spring Craft and Vendor Show is just one week away!
With Easter (chocolate) on the mind and a growing stash of pastel and spring-coloured yarn ends piling up, this mini basket crochet project was meant to be. Also, it is equal parts simple and adorable!
Having a little deja vu waking up to ice. Almost a year ago to the day in southern Ontario, we had the big ice storm that left us without power for a day. The freezing rain we’ve had in the Timmins area in the past day doesn’t quite live up to last year’s experience, but it’s still making getting around a little harder. And it’s so pretty! Once I can walk around a little better (right now it’s a one step forward and slip back two steps kind of day), the camera will be working a little harder.
After switching to safer and natural options to wash laundry, drying in an equally environmentally-friendly (and chemical-free) way was a cinch. Since the changeover started in the summer, laundry could be hung outside on the line. Canadian winters, however, aren’t that conducive to hanging the wash outside.
As it turns out, making a wool dryer ball is so simple! You’re going to want to make one in all the colours for you and all your friends.
