*Mad for Mocha - a blend of coffee and chocolate. Tastes like your fave barista made it!

*Cheeky Chai - like a warm cup of exotic tea but without burning your tongue!

*Sparkling Grapefruit - Refreshing and tasty but without the sour of real grapefruit

Holiday Flavours!

285 - Please Send Good Vibes  

My dad goes into surgery tomorrow. He calls today to find out the time. I am so worried. It's routine surgery but when you're 60 and your heart's not as healthy as it used to be, nothing is routine.

So please, keep Papa in your thoughts tomorrow and I will let you know when it's all over. Thanks!

284 - Last Run of Jayne Cobb Hats EVER!  

So I've been making Jayne Cobb Cunning hats for over a year now.

I needed to re-stock my yarn supply this week but I couldn't find the orange anywhere, I went to 3 different places. I went online, turns out it's discontinued and couldn't find it ANYWHERE!

As luck would have it Michaels had 9 balls of it left so  I bought it all. So when this is gone, there will be no more hats to be had.

So, get one before they're gone forever. Tell your friends, you can all look cunning!


So very sad, I've loved making these.

283 - Redd's Outrageously Delicious Sammich  

I have a favourite sammich. I'm eating one right now while I'm writing this. It is by far the best sammich I have ever eaten and I wanted to share it with all of you!

Picture 011

You too can make your very own Redd's Outrageously Delicious Sammich with just five ingredients:

*foccacia bread

*hummus (I use spicy for the extra kick)

*deli chicken (I use Schneiders Fat Free chicken breast)

*provolone cheese (though havarti has worked in the past with great success)

*alfalfa sprouts (you could probably use your sprout of choice)

I started typing out directions but seriously, it's a sammich. Use common sense and put it together. Now eat it and say NOM NOM NOM!

You're welcome!

281 - Sick  

So I've had the flu since Friday. Thankfully not the stomach flu, just the kind that leaves you with a fever and the feeling of having been hit by a Mack truck. Lucky for me, Pauly is home so I've been able to rest. I've been soooo tired. So in conclusion, flu=fail.

280 - Not Your Grandma's Washcloths!  

They are only $4 each and soon will be offered 3/$10!

Want to have a cotton washcloth but are tired of boring square cloths in drab colours?
Hate the smell that sponges get when they get old?
Then this solves your problem!

These cloths are about 7" (17.5cm) around and are fun and colourful!

Made of 100% cotton and is washable & dryable. Just toss it in the wash when it starts looking grungy and problem solved!

Great for your kitchen, bathroom or gift!

Lovingly made by the Dame in her smoke-free, pet friendly home in Ottawa, Canada.

278 - My First Sock!  

So I'm making a pair of socks for my dad for his 60th birthday.

Here is my first sock ever!

Ever wanted to make a sock but were intimated by most patterns? I used a super awesome tutorial by Silver's Sock Class.

277 - I Think I'm Addicted.  

I think I may have a fibre addiction. I just got in from a mini shopping spree.

First, we went to Wabi Sabi. I <3 that store like whoa!

I got 6m of wine red, 6m of blue and 12m of black. I also got a couple grab bags of little bits to try my hand at making felted beads for necklaces for the jewelry section of the Emporium.

Picture 007

Since I'm also on a sock kick, despite never having finished a sock, I bought a ball of Tofutsies. It's a  50% superwash wool, 25% soy silk, 22.5% cotton and 2.5% Chitin. What's chitin you may be asking yourself? Chitin is fibre made from shrimp and crab shells. I couldn't make that up.

Picture 009

Then the yarn bug was in my system. We then went to Zellers and I might have gotten carried away...

Picture 002

In my defense, I have plans for all of this. I have some big and not so big ideas for the Emporium and needed some stuff to get it rolling. August will be busy as I want to have my shop ready for the holiday season. Yikes.

Anyways, that's my day. I really, really love yarn and roving and yes, even crustacean wool.
