Here at georgianna craft inc. we like to keep our employee happy. One of the perks on the job is allowing our employee to make something for herself after a hectic week of production for the company. Her latest reward, whipped up today, is shown here, a star skirt, which she hopes to wear to the Littlest on December 7th. The fabric is a canvas from IKEA a few years ago and she is very pleased with the results. Even if she grew up knowing not to wear white after Labour Day weekend...!

This weekend, Sunday to be precise, is the Cranberry Fair craft show here in Whitehorse. I really enjoy this fair and was really mad at myself when I botched my application last year. When I attended as a vendor in 2011 it was so much fun - I especially enjoyed being on the other side of the table as it can be very busy when you are a buyer instead of a seller! I really enjoy hearing who people are planning on giving their purchases to. There are lots of good stories and destinations too. Being a craft vendor in Whitehorse is a thrill as often your wares will end up across the country and sometimes across the globe. As a vendor I also love to catch up with friends I see in the crowd that I don't normally see day to day. The Tote No. 5, shown above, is made from some 1978 home dec fabric from my mother in law's fabric stash. It's really beautiful in person, with birds, bugs and cherry blossoms, or maybe pussy willows... I'm looking forward to Sunday and hope that my sewn goods will find new homes this Christmas. See you there!
These quilty pants could be my new all time favourites. Available in sizes from 6 months to 2 years.

I'm really looking forward to making a few more of these lovely wool bags in the near future. They are (or will be!) made with some wool plaids I've collected from Pendleton Woolen Mill in Portland, Oregon - just off the Springwater Corridor bicycle trail! They have a long strap and a handle strap that also gathers the bag shut. A wool bag has been on my to do list for a while - and soon it will be crossed off! Hooray!

Another fresh batch of quilty pants has been delivered to our local toy shop. I've had the fabric for 2 months and it was torture not having the time to make them up sooner. I was about a month behind in getting these to the shop but it's been a busy spring! I'm telling myself they wouldn't have sold as they are a warm pant and we've actually had a warm summer! This is probably not true though, as many folks buy them now for the Fall. I'm wondering when I'll get tired of making 5-sets-of-8 pants (80 legs!) but so far so good! Wait 'til you see the Fall/Winter batch - it's a biggie!
