My parents have been in Wales for almost a week, so we went out and tended to the garden a bit last night. I brought home a bag of potatoes, beans, onions, and peas fresh from the garden - which I am roasting right now.  We stopped by my favourite park and wandered the trails, and kind of got lost...

This morning we woke up early, and headed out to the trails again, this time to a place just on the outskirts of town.  We walked for over an hour, just enjoying the forest.  It's one of my most favourite things to do.  I got eaten alive by mosquitoes and horse flies, but it was worth it!

My local fabric store was having it's seasonal clearance sale, so I stocked up on a few things this afternoon, including a drool-worthy chocolate brown stretch satin that is begging to be made into a slip.

When I got home, I worked on a couple orders including this teeny-tiny bodice for a little flower girl.  It's made of organic cotton jersey, overlaid with antique-white stretch lace.  I smocked the back with elastic to make it extra stretchy.  I understand the little one will be wearing it with a tutu skirt.  I think it turned out pretty darn cute...

Well, potatoes are done.  Time to eat and unwind!


  1. Awww what a sweet little corset! The lucky flower girl will certainly look a princess. :-)

  2. that's such a cute corset. I love the idea of having a garden to grow fruits and vegetables I used to have a really big lemon tree.

  3. What a great vegetable haul! We've tried to grow some veg this year without much success...I blame the terrible weather, it's just been so wet. Our herbs have done ok (except for coriander which seems to have disappeared!) but nothing else. Oh well there's always next year!!
