Hello everybody!!! What a weekend, what a week! Wawa was rocked to it’s core on July 22 and 23rd, as it celebrated it’s first annual WAWAPALOOZA! Music Festival!!! Featured were such talented acts as The Bustling Hedgerows, Jean-Yves Morin, The Sure Things, Hawksley Workman, Helix, and more!!! Of course, the highlight for me was Hawksley, who is not only a brilliant performer, but also a super-nice guy. He wished me a happy birthday, and I’ll never forget that million-dollar smile! But I digress….
Here are some snaps of my booth and some jewelry that I made for Wawapalooza, and for my Etsy shop. More pics can be seen at http://www.flickr.com/photos/cheewawamomma/.
On another note, I’m super behind on just about everything, but I will be working like mad to catch up. For example, I must type up that Sheepy pattern and post it right here, as promised! And orders! Must fill orders! Ah, but I’m having fun, and I’ll get it all done as soon as I can.
Next show is the Winnie The Pooh Fest in White River, August 19, 20, and 21st, 2011. Following that, is the Fall Fair, and Artisan Tour in Wawa in September, then the Byhand in November. Will post dates when I know them. Hope you all are enjoying your summer!
Well, I didn’t even look to see when the last time I updated my blog was…it was too long! Just wanted to post a few pics of SOME of the projects I’ve been working on.
Free pattern to come for Sheepy!
I’ve also been working on some funky, hippie jewelry designs for the Wawapalooza music festival! Go here (http://edcwawa.ca/wawapalooza/) for more info. I’ll be a vendor at the street fair, and everyone else who is awesome is going to be there too!
Canada Post is on strike, so I can’t send anything by mail at the moment. BOO!!! Hopefully next week they’ll be working again, so I can continue working.
Will post the pattern as soon as I can. I want to test it again. :)
Wow! Lots of stuff happening for cheewawamomma designs, and it’s all good!
First off, I’d like to thank everyone for their kind words, and oodles of orders for the Bender inspired toque! Or tuque? I’m Canadian, I should know this! Anyhow, the orders are going to keep me super busy, and I’m so grateful! I’d also like to thank the folks that posted, and reposted, my little toque on all the “geek” sites and blogs. It made the hat even more popular! Finally, I’d like to thank Matt T. for snapping such a great photo of the toque.
The pattern will be released soon for sale in my Etsy shoppe. I wasn’t going to sell the pattern, but I didn’t realize how popular it was going to be! So, I changed my mind, as is my perogative! LOL!
Also, Wawapalooza is coming up in July, and it is a music festival chock full of all kinds of talented Canadian artists from all genres! I’m so excited! In addition to the great music, there will be children’s activities, and a HUGE indie crafts fair! Guess where I’ll be?
I’m also on Facebook! Search for Cheewawamomma Designs, and then go there, and click like! I post there a bit more regularly. I’m also on Twitter now, but I still haven’t mastered the art of the “tweet”!
So, I will post as often as I can, but until next time, I’ll be crocheting Bender Inspired Toques!
Catch ya later, chumps and chumpettes! ;)
