Right now, I’m making baskets

Making baskets. Thanks Oscar!

I’ve been making baskets for an upcoming craft show in Vancouver called Artful Sundays. You can see Oscar above helping me. He loves hanging out in the craft room with me whenever I head up there to sew.

An assortment of baskets

I’ve been sewing a few a day for the last few weeks and they are adding up. Most of them are made from old ties and scarves people have given me with gusto! There are also a few shirts thrown in for good measure. I’ve had A LOT of fabrics donated lately, enough to sew at least 4,000 baskets. If I stick with my current plan, I should have nearly 30 for the show on Sunday.

This will be my first craft show, so wish me luck! If it goes well, I just may do another. But for now, the show on August 7th is it.

My buddy, Tami Thirlwell, will be selling her watercolour paintings there as well. And we’ll be there, rain or shine under tents. Here are the details just in case you’d like to come out and see us:

Britannia Community Centre
1661 Napier St, Vancouver, BC V5L 3X1

It would be great to see you there!
