Hello and Welcome to my Blog!
I'm Wendy and I live in Ontario, Canada. In this little blog I like to share a bit of what I make in the way of knitting, sewing and refinishing. I also enjoy the outdoors and share my backyard gardening and some camping trips to northern Ontario. Today I'll just share a few little bits in the way of photos from previous posts to show what you will find here. I hope you enjoy your visit!
A Little Bit of Knitting ...
Knitting has become my latest creative enjoyment. I taught myself how to knit about four years ago, and have challenged myself with new techniques with every project I start. It's been a long haul, but I'm now at a place where I feel much more confident in the patterns I try.

A Little Bit of Sewing ...
I enjoy sewing immensely, however, I've gotten away from it a bit while I've been learning how to knit. I plan on getting back into sewing again this year, and have some new projects lined up.

A Little Bit of Crafting ...
I used to love making crafts with my own kids and with their friends. Although my kids are older now, every so often I think of a craft that we really enjoyed and share it with you here.

A Little Bit of Thrifting ...
I love old things and often share some of my little treasures here. I hope to one day set up a proper sewing room when one of my kids leaves the nest, and decorate it from my store of goodies ;)

A Little Bit of Refinishing ...
This is something new for me. It all started with a set of kitchen chairs which I refinished for my daughter. Since then I was hooked, and have refinished a few other projects.

A Little Bit of Gardening ...
I inherited many plants from my mother's garden when she passed away, and it inspired me a great deal to do more with my gardening. With lots of encouragement from fellow bloggers, the enjoyment of it all has definitely taken hold.
A Little Bit of Camping ...
I camp every year with my family in provincial parks in northern Ontario, and just love taking photos on these trips.
I hope you enjoyed your visit!
