A Foggy Fall Weekend

So, apparently I have been too busy living my life to write about it….gosh, but I miss blogging! It has been unusually foggy yesterday and today…but I am not bothered. Mat won the use of a demo car, a Kia Borrego, for the week, so we are off on a roadtrip to the Paris and Woodstock, ON area and I am going to hide a Domokun letterbox!

I have been really busy just organizing different aspects of my life and trying to work on things here and there. I did manage to get a load of pottery out of the kiln…here are some pics of finished yarn bowls:

There are plenty more pottery photos on my Flickr. I made a ton of buttons, most of which sold at the amazing Woodstock Fleece Festival, and this little acorn pot.

I have also started a new vintage Etsy shop – Hullabaloos Vintage. It’s been lots of fun so far – a place for me to share the kitschy, cutesy stuff I collect – because mama’s running out of nooks and crannies to hide things!!

Also, if you are a Muststashyo podcast listener, fear not! There will be a Movember episode – Mat and I are putting it together this weekend. We just havent had time, both working in the technical and financial sectors – the end of the year is crunch time. This means lots of overtime, and just general job stress. Weewaw…

My latest project is one I am working on hopefully to be finished for this holiday season …we shall see. I have had little time to get to the pottery studio, or maybe it’s a motivation problem. Not sure, maybe because summer is over. I need to boost my vitamin intake and find a sugar daddy to send me on a tropical vacation.

Anyhow, here they are…my little Bird in the Hand project:

Also, one other thing I wanted to share! How cool are these socks?

They are the Rainbow Shell socks and you can buy them here on Ravelry or from The Black Lamb in person or via email. 100% go to this sweet little boy, Ben, who has cerebral palsy and is saving up for a second stem cell treatment in Mexico. His aunt, Pat, designed the pattern. She is a local, unknown on the internet, ingenious knitter and designer who creates incredible socks. These are actually a lot easier than they look!

Also, I have a whole new yarn line called Foot Fetish – merino/cashmere/nylon sock yarn!! Check em out here: http://www.studioloo.com/yarnpages/footfetish.html

Ok, out into the fog I go!
