The Olympic Coat (and some videos)

I got this coat awhile back, but haven't worn it in quite some time as it's one of those things that for some reason ended up in a corner of the closet. I really should start cleaning out my stuff, yo!

This is the Hudson Bay Official Canadian Olympic Team Coat for Sochi 2014.
just with my basic winter uniform of a long shirt, leggings and boots

How can you go wrong with a hooded coat?

This outfit was what I wore to the little one's Christmas Concert in school yesterday. I made her the dress below. She basically asked me, "Where's my green outfit?" the day before the concert. I bought the fabric, washed and dried it, then sewed it using a pattern I've done before to make it go quick. The things you do for your loved ones, I tellz yah....

The kids in her class were supposed to be like Christmas tress, so we added some ornaments.

And the aftermath...we were all so hungry for dinner!

What have you been up to lately?

PS In case you have some time and you want to see some crafting stuff, I posted two YouTube vids...hehe

Have a great day, you guys!


  1. Beautiful photos and outfits, Emma! You look lovely! :)

  2. I felt like those Olympics weren't just a year ago but it's almost two years I guess. Sochi was not ready for the olympics. I heard of a few stories where people go to their hotel room and there'd be an occupant in there already, a stray dog.

  3. i love your space and knit stash. i just have a small basket and crate to stash my yarn and even with that my husband is always asking what i'm going to do with them. like i need to knit them all now and clear it! lol i also love the dress you stewed. it's so perfect :)

  4. That'a fab coat! Good thing you found it. Someone is a really cute little Christmas tree :)

  5. It's always cool to find those lovely forgotten items in the closet; the green dress is beautiful.

  6. Oh wow aren't you such an awesome mum. If I had a child and (let's face it, I'm sure this would happen) they needed something green the next day, I'd completely freak out bahaha. I love the dress you made her, it's gorgeous and it's something she can easily wear again.


  7. Yay, videos! I love 'snooping' around in people's houses and stashes, hehehe. I like that coat by the way, give it a spot somewhere in the front of your closet, girl!

  8. it turned out so well!! you gotta love kids and their last min requests!! and thanks for the tours :)
