Latest Me-Made

Here are just a couple of stuff I made over the summer to get ready for the colder months.

1) I love how this sweater turned out, and it was an easy knit to boot. Pattern can be found here.
Worsted Boxy sweater

 2) My sister-in-law bought this DMC Top This hat kit for me to knit for the little one. This was another easy project with such a cute result:)

3) My husband rarely requests anything, but one thing he did want me to make for him are boxers coz these are items he buys a lot of. I thought I'd give this pattern from Diana Rupp's Sew Everything Workshop book a go, and it worked out great. I didn't bother matching the fabric pattern as this was just a test, but next time for sure:)

The Foxy Boxers

In case you're curious, this is me when I knit.  The husband jokes I'm Peg Bundy except I knit and eat chips instead of bonbons when watching my TV shows/listening to podcasts. "Oh, Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaal!"

It is coming....

 I can tell summer is ending, because there has been rain some days and the heat waves are getting shorter and shorter...meh. I have been feeling under the weather, so that's meh, too.

Anyhoo, still trying to wear my summer outfits. Hey, as long as there's no snow, right?

old top I sewed, Old Navy skirt, Alejandrina's sandals
And of course, another appearance by the photo bomber. I purposely told her to not get into the shot, and what does she do?

Are you just as sad as I am that summer is ending?

Smorgasbord (Picture-Heavy)

It's been a busy summer so far, enjoying the heat and gallivanting around town. Last week, we had a chance to go away for a couple of days and. It's the usual trip the kiddos love: Great Wolf Lodge, going to see Niagara Falls (which is super close to GWL), and shopping, of course! Well, the shopping is probably more for me...ahem....

Here are some pics:)

Enjoying the warm summer night....

It was super hot that day we decided to see the falls, so walking around was a bit of an ordeal for the kids and the hubby, but they still enjoyed it...I think....

He was not impressed.

We were in and out of gift shops to cool down.

Then back at at GWL.
Eating while enjoying the view of the Great Wolf Lodge water park....
At the arcade:
Doing the Wooly Mammoth ride...weeeee!!!

Walking around at night (Honestly, though, I just took them out to get some stuff at the Pok├ęstop outside the lodge...hehe)
The obligatory chair shot on the last day....

We also went to the the Outlet Collection for some shopping.

The haul:
And I got my clogs (see previous post)! Weeeeeeeee!

Let me know what you guys have been up to!

Like a broken record

This dress has been worn so many times since I sewed in, it gets worn as soon as it's washed. Yup....

This weekend, the Krinos Taste Of Danforth  (the annual Greek food festival in Toronto) occurred. I decided to take the kids for the first time. Here are some pics taken:)
on the subway
 It was a beautiful hot day...perfect for a street festival. We went super early to miss the crowd, but by the time we left, it was cray cray!

Souvlakis everywhere!

Enjoying loukoumades:D

How was your weekend, guys?
