Weird Crafts is one of our absolute favourite features, but we don’t get a lot of opportunities to use it because neither Daniel nor myself are overly crafty. (Our wives are, though. Note to our wives: be more Canuck-oriented with your craftiness.) That means this feature depends on us going out in search of interesting Canuck crafts on the Internet, or, even better, people sending us cool stuff they made.
We prefer to be sent the crafts, since it involves fewer forays into the bewildering twin River Styxes that are Etsy and Pinterest, with souls reaching out to us from the deep, imploring us to check out their human hair doilies and placenta prints and whatnot. Crafts such as those, while weird, are A) too weird for our tastes, and B) not Canuck-related and therefore, thankfully, not applicable.
(Hmm. I guess if someone did a Canuck-related placenta print, we’d blog about it. Please don’t do that.)
Anyway, here’s a much less disgusting craft: it’s a Canuck-themed quilt, sent to us from Val of Maple Leaf Quilters. It looks downright cozy. Also, it totally says “Wizardous Sedinerie” on it. Not “Sedinery”, which is the usual spelling, but “Sedinerie”, the PITB-specific original alternate spelling. Check it out:
But there’s more. This quilt has been donated, along with 16 other quilts, to the Canuck Place Children’s Hospice. As you know, we love that place.
According to Val, who runs Maple Leaf Quilters with her sister, Joan:
“This is the second year that MLQ has made quilts for Canuck Place Children’s Hospice in anticipation of the Canucks’ run to the Cup. Last year, we delivered 17 quilts and were anticipating another long run this year so we could make just as many. The run may have been short, but we’ve still managed to get 17 more quilts for the kids. Your inspiration to me comes from the term ‘Wizardous Sedinerie’ and I thought I’d share a photo of the finished quilt.”
Remind me to cross “inspire a quilt pattern” off the bucket list!
That rules. Thanks Val and Joan — we’re sure the kids will love this quilt as much as we do.Tags: canuck place, etsy is terrifying, quilting, Sedins, send us blog ideas so we don't have to think, Weird Crafts, Wizardous Sedinerie
