About Me

Aurora, Ontario, Canada
I am a lover of all things created, history, travel, art and literature. I spend my time with family and friends, working hard and creating things, pretty much in that order. My passion is to make beautiful things to wear, mostly accessories, jewelry, belts, clutches, hair adornments, brooches etc. I create mostly using fabric , fibres, metals, jewels, pins, chain, clips, buttons and more. I have a shop on Etsy.com which I sometimes have a little trouble maintaining depending on the time of year and how busy I am.

Add Another Book to the Collection

I increased my library on Saturday by buying another book. Not that I need more books, our house runneth over.
Its a very useful book and I'm sure I will be making a few things from it. It's called "One Yard Wonders: 101 Sewing Projects" by Rebecca Yaker and Patricia Hoskins.
The book is spiral bound so it's easy to lay flat while you are working on something but the best thing about this book is that it comes with a big envelope of patterns and right now on Amazon it sells for less than $15.00.
There are so many ideas in this book and if you have a great imagination and skill you can embellish on these ideas by taking something fairly simple and adding your own twist. There are patterns for clothing, baby stuff, household items, bags and much more.
Take a look inside on Amazon!



  1. Oooo! Looks like I may have a new book to try out with my new sewing machine!

  2. My friends idea is published in one of those books. Not sure if it is that one that you have or if there are different books.
    It is a kids wrap top pattern printed on one yard of fabric. She is pretty talented.
