Taa Daa! This was so fun. The weather couldn't have been better, I had great neighbours (DH of Lareware!), lots of love from the community and lots of orders for skirts! I couldn't be more pleased. I'm also pretty excited about my change tent in the back right corner. It was made from retired bedspreads from the Ontario School for the Deaf (the label reads OSD GIRLS, currently known as Sir James Whitney School for the Deaf). Big thank you to my Aunt Susie, a long time employee, who saved these lovely woven spreads with pine trees. They make a great change tent - it was actually nice and warm in there when the weather cooled off! My neighbour DH and I used it to change into jeans when it cooled off! It will also make a fun play tent in our back yard when hung from the clothes line. Click on the photo to take yourself to a few more photos on my flickr site.

I have made and sold 23 skirts this spring! Thank you lovely ladies of Whitehorse! These skirts are also going to be taking up residence and/or traveling this summer to such exotic locales as Montreal, Paris, Nanaimo BC, Vancouver (this green one) and more (I'm sure!). If you are in Whitehorse this Thursday and the next, you will have a chance to see, try on and purchase or put in an order for your own georgianna a-line skirt. I will have a market stall at the Fireweed Community Market, shipyards park, from 3pm til 8pm, June 28th and July 5th only! After all, a gal can't sew all summer - there's holidaying to be done too! Come by and say hello, and wear your skirt if you already have one - I will be!
