Handmade Nation - part 1



Holy moly what a last couple of days!

The festivities began Wednesday morning when Rob, Kim and I picked up Faythe from the airport. We gave her a brief tour down Main Street, picked up an iced americano and headed over to Davie Street for a sushi lunch.




Leanne and Mandy from Yarn Bombing! Their book comes out in the Fall, but in the meantime, you have to check out their website!

Afterwards, we headed over to Kim's house for a BBQ dinner before everybody arrived for the welcome party.



I have never seen so much food at a pot luck event! The big hits of the night were the lemon bars from Heather at dahlhaus and Jeannette's goat cheese stuffed dates!

We ordered vegan chocolate ganache cupcakes.. because.. what a better way to say welcome, then with cupcakes by Coco Cake Cupcake.





Bright and early Thursday morning, we drove Faythe over to City TV for her Breakfast Television segment. Check out the plate of pastries waiting for us in the green room!

Breakfast Television asked us for some crafty props, so I brought along one of my apple cozies which Faythe kept - cute!



Delish pink lemonade.

Then over to Cafe Barney on Granville Street for a quick brunch of eggs benedict (all 4 of us ordered the same thing!), we headed over to Barefoot Contessa on Main Street for a quick book signing.
