we did a good job on making wonderful memories with our friends last weekend. on the beautiful sunny Sunday we went up the CN Tower in Toronto and enjoyed the view. we went to the harbor festival and came home to barbecue in our backyard. the children made the flower arrangements for their kids table, while we enjoyed our homemade caesar salad and other foods and drinks. it was one of those days that seemed to last forever...

playing with lovely Spring pastel colors. flowers, food, yarn, the outdoors... it was a good week for sure. create 'n date went live, sold practically out and preparations are in full swing. I can't wait to show you more images, meet all the ladies who are joining us, and see them all crafting and laughing together on June 2nd.
for now: happy long weekend if you're celebrating!

while the magnolia is quickly losing her pretty flowers, the crab apple has just started to open up her endless little blossoms. oh the joy of Spring when you are surrounded by mature trees...
in the mean time I put together a yarn package for a dear customer who requested the Miami City crochet kit in more girly colors. I think she made an excellent match combining these tones. I love making up a little color story with yarn, pens for the design and tape to wrap the order.
this weekend I will be busy doing prep work for create 'n date on June 2nd in Amsterdam. are you joining us for a creative and inspiring morning and lunch?
