Accomplishments of the Week - July 8, 2018

Accomplishments of the Week - July 8, 2018

Accomplishment #1

I moved house. On July 1st. In Montreal. In the middle of a heatwave. July 1st is the traditional moving day in Quebec which means that a ridiculous number of people are all trying to move house at the same time.

So far in my 10 years in Montreal I'd managed to avoid taking part in this tradition, but not this move. I've never before had to book a moving company four months in advance or move in at the same time as someone else is still moving out. At one point I think there were about 18 people in the apartment - absolute madness. But we survived, and although there's still quite a lot of unpacking to do, I'm quite enjoying exploring our new neighbourhood.

And I'm looking forward to having my loom in a nice sunny corner with all my houseplants!

Accomplishment #2

I finished my Pizzicato Pinstripe socks and Debbie and I did the photoshoot for the pattern today. The pattern is written and ready to go, so we just need to do the last layout edits and proofread and it will be ready to publish! And I have enough yarn left paired with some other leftovers to make my son a pair of socks, so he's very happy.

Mending, sewing, crafting

Lately a lot of my crafting inspiration has come from my son, who is growing and needs things, and from my goal to live more gently on this earth and think twice before buying and using things.

My values of living frugally and buying ethically-produced clothing that is not damaging to the environment sometimes feel completely at odds with each other. For me, this is where mending, crafting, and buying second-hand come in. Can I mend something to extend its useful life? Can I knit or sew more of our everyday wardrobe basics? Is it something I can trade or buy second-hand rather than purchasing new?

It's been quite a while since either Elizabeth or I have had a moment to record our weekly accomplishments here on the blog. I think it's a fun way to share a bit more about ourselves and our projects so I've decided to revisit it this month. I'm not sure we'll try to make it a weekly thing again though, maybe we should change it to "Accomplishments of the Month" instead?
