SummerWrapUp

Wow. So many things happening and opening and being awesome during this slow finish to the summertime …. First, a warm welcome to Patch Halifax! Patch is a much needed fabric shop and workshop spot. This beautiful space, owned by the lovely Christina Pasquet, opened its doors this August on Robie St. and now I can purchase all my fabric for book cloth locally, (finally) learn how to sew with a sewing machine and maybe even try my hand with a pattern or two (Momma will be so proud!). Even more exciting, Mule Mother Books is teaming up with Patch to host a fabric book making workshop Sept. 14th from 1-4pm. The cost is $35 and all you’ll need is some sweet fabric and some patience. Here’s a peek at what we’ll be making:

A week or two after the fabric workshop, Mule Mother will be down at the Forum in Halifax for the Etsy Made in Canada Marketplace. I’m thinking it’s going to be pretty great and I’ll have a lot of back to school-y kinda stuff, so definitely get your arse down there if your around!

Lastly, I just finished this lovely little custom recipe book. It’s a bachlorette gift from a group of buds who contributed all their favourite recipes. This is my favourite stuff to make for people.

(This last one is the book being formatted and my cluttered desk…)

And it’s Monday and maybe we can all use a good kick in the pants, so I’ll leave you with a track from Tribe Called Red who we went to see for free at Aldreney Landing last night! Felt so good to shake my hips… guhh I need to dance more…
