Elora Vintage

I've started my own little online boutique on Etsy -- Elora Vintage. It's been on my mind for a while now, and although I kept the idea mostly to myself, I've been quietly collecting and picking up small treasures here and there.

Yo Yo

This antique yo yo quilt was for sale on ethanollie, and needless to say, it sold quite quickly. Isn't it amazing? Each little individual scrunched up round is just so perfect..

I found a simple tutorial online on how to make my own yo yo quilt. It doesn't look too difficult as there's no need for batting or a backing of any sort. Thus, I have new craft project! And one thats good for a gal on a dime -- it's perfect way to use up all my scrap materials, or better yet, my old kiddy clothes my mother has been storing in her basement.

What's going on

Has it really been three months since my last post? My goodness, and my apologies.

Truth of the matter is, that I think I've failed my plans to open a yarn shop, and I haven't wanted to openly admit it yet. I still would love to open a shop, but I'm doubtful that it's going to happen this year. I will keep my business plan always on my desktop, in case the perfect opportunity arises at the right time - but for now, I think it's best to admit that I've fallen short of my goal for opening this past May. The same goes for my plans for opening in September or October.

Again, my apologies if I've gotten your hopes up and let you down. Hamilton really, really needs a yarn/craft/diy space in it's core. Toronto creative spaces like The Workroom or Lettuce Knit inspire me so much. My dream lives on in such spaces as these.

One day friends, one day.
