It is entirely appropriate that I begin this post with the Time Fly. This charming creature was sent to me by dear friend, Shelley Noble, and is the first piece of personal mail that I have received at my new Canadian address! Time Flies are featured in her fabulous, hand made, stop motion, animation movie, Halfland. They control the speed of time, and let me tell you, around here it has been moving way to quickly! I am late with this week’s weekword post! The Time Fly arrived in the nick of time!

Last week our word was Summer, posted by the lovely Emma at the Gift Shed.

Hurry and get yourself a copy of the Spring/Summer issue of SewStylish Magazine before they are all gone! I thoroughly enjoyed creating a map (of sorts) for the article, Sewing without a Map. (click to see the full illo) I found this article extremely helpful, especially for following vintage patterns or for those times when you might want to deconstruct a favorite but worn out dress and remake it anew. The magazine is packed with lots of other fun sewing projects and tips too!

I hope you’ve been enjoying summer so far. I spent the first part of the season packing, packing, packing and moving.

We’ve all had some adjusting to do.

I will be spending the rest of the summer relaxing/recuperating, exploring and setting up the new nest.

I’ve been tapped to post the next weekword! Let’s see what you can do with the word water. If you’d like to join,¬† just leave a comment here and I will list your entry on my post this Friday!


  1. What’s with everyone moving to Canada?! Kirst over at The Leopard Anchor moved out there in May :)

    Thanks for taking part my lovely, and I’m in for this week! x

    1. Yay! I am glad you are in! I was just reading over at the Leopard Anchor and it looks like Kirst is in Ontario too! Small world!

  2. Oh, poor puss. Hope he’s emerged by now! I’m in for this week.

    1. Oh yes, he has emerged and assumed his rightful place as Emperor :)
      Glad you’re in!
