I experienced the  sheer excitement of opening my box from 
reprodepot tonight. YAY! So many colours and shapes to play with. I have 3 pillows and moose project decals in mind already. 
I've worked really hard and finally finished my stitching of a moose and a tree. These pieces will be turned into pillows. For now, I am sharing images of what you get when I pull off hours of stitching. 

Enjoy the images and feel free to throw any feed back my way! I'd love to hear from you.

MOOSE PROJECT - Sneak peaks

I've been hard at work in my teeny studio today. The sun was shining and I thought, "what a great opportunity to take pictures of what I am working on. Here is a glimpse of some vintage fabrics I have been working with. 

Yesterday was filled with a grandiose breakfast and thrift store shopping with Heidi from home baked. I found this beautiful horse standing there alone in the electronics department. Heidi and I discussed whe
ther or not I really needed such a thing. But it was just so fun, I couldn't leave it behind. Now it keeps me company while I stitch away at my pillows.

Deciding to stop working in the apparel wholesale distribution industry is a easy step. No longer can I face my reflection everyday knowing I am participating in something that is unethical. Sweat shops and cheap labour are not a good fit with my self esteem, pride or business ethic. Seeing as our society  chooses on a daily basis to contribute to this industry I have no choice but to stop feeding the beast, or at least choosing not to make it a career choice.

Moose project is a dream, one I've chosen to make a reality. My heritage is one of a long line of women who have made hand crafted creations. They put love and affection in all things made for family and friends. Craft rooms have been essential parts of homes. 

My mother used to wood work and paint, finishing with jewellery. She would drag me along as a child to craft fairs held in church basements  and arena's. 

I am taking my memories and turning them into my own business.  I want to live a life I take pride in and make things for people who will love them.  Introducing MOOSE PROJECT. Keep a close eye. New creations will be offered fresh from my studio located in Montreal, Quebec.
