In July 2018, I closed my home daycare. I never dreamed I’d be in a position to have a nomination for an award for my new endeavour a short time after!

I believe it is the power of positive, like-minded women who have propelled me where I am now.

Since I’ve been out of the traditional business world for over a decade, it was important to me that I align myself with like-minded women. I am thankful to have found a group of Mompreneurs who are definitely my kinda ladies (moms, business owners, and all-around awesome) that meet regularly.

The one amazing thing about this group is that they welcomed me with open arms right from the beginning.

What Is Mompreneur?

Mompreneurs “support, educate, and empower moms in business. We are dedicated to bringing the businesses and talents of moms in business and female entrepreneurs into recognition for our collective community.

Our network encourages and facilitates connecting members to other women and businesses across Canada, providing affordable ways for female entrepreneurs to promote their businesses, advocating for female entrepreneurs and women in business both locally and nationally, and creating an online presence for female entrepreneurs in one centralized location.” source


Mompreneurs has given me wonderful friends and I’ve also been blessed by having been nominated for a Mompreneur Award.

To have my handmade business recognized by my peers warms my heart and brings a bounce to my step. When you work by yourself, it’s easy to get lost in the to do’s and lose sight of your accomplishments. This nomination is an important step in my own appreciation of how far I’ve come in my business.

Will You Vote For Me?

Voting runs from December 9 until December 15, 2019. You can vote once every 24 hours. Thanks if you can – it would mean a lot!!

Thank you for your support for me and my business. I’m excited to keep creating knit and crochet character hats, patterns, and children’s books to tell each character’s story.

Until next time, may the yarn be with you.

Armchair Caddy FREE Knit Pattern

There are so many evenings that I sit on the couch to knit or crochet while unwinding in front of a television show with my husband. I would love to sit closer to him but it is more often than not that the couch and ottoman are covered with my project accessories. Sound familiar? Perhaps one of these days I will make this knit Armchair Caddy from the free pattern provided by Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores.

Leg Warmers are Back!

I loved wearing leg warmers as a kid (yes, in the 80s!). I have been so cold lately that I have been avoiding skirts and stockings. I wonder if I whip up a pair (or two) if I will be more inclined to don dressier clothes and stay warm at the same time. Though I do see the fashion includes them being worn over jeans too. Hmmm…   I did a quick Pinterest search for leg warmers that has some fun and easy patterns to make. Craftsy also did a round-up of knitted leg warmer patterns (I’m not sure if they

How to Make a T-Shirt Quilt: Preparing the Shirts

Today, I am going to show you how I prepare a T-shirt to put into a quilt. First, get your iron and press the shirt to get out any wrinkles. I use parchment paper underneath so that any of the adhesive from the interfacing doesn’t get onto my quilting board. If I was going to do it face up, I would also have a layer of parchment paper on the top so that no sticky residue would go onto my iron either. The interfacing has a shiny and a matte side. The shiny side is where the adhesive is and this will go
