editor’s pick: lindsay stead quilts

Lindsay Stead creates incredible heirloom-quality quilts and toss cushions in her Toronto studio.

From Lindsay: “In this era of making objects as quickly as possible, I take great pride in using traditional techniques to make my quilts. Each quilt is entirely hand quilted, which although being a very time consuming process, creates a very personal connection for me to my work.” I’d like to hang one of these graphic quilts on a wall.

Check out Lindsay’s beautiful work at Toronto’s One of a Kind Show until December 7, or on her website.

Proper care means seasoning it, which will bring out a natural nonstick coating. Here, I’ll tell you exactly how to do that.

do you love cheese as much as me?

I’m pretty much obsessed with cheese, and in turn, this cheese board. It stores your cheese knives, acts as a wood cutting board on one side AND a marble board to serve the cheese on the other. Love it! A must-have for the upcoming holiday season. And another excuse to host a party and serve cheese…bonus!

The four season mantle

As the nights get colder, we tend to spend more time in our living room enjoying the fire.  While of course the fire is beautiful to watch, I love seeing our holiday mantle sparkle above.  I opted for a simple fresh cedar mantle this year with candles and simple gold accents, including nutcrackers I spray painted. Christmas mantle season is definitely my favourite ‘mantle’ season of the year.
