I realize that when I say “I love fall.”, it’s like saying,
“Pizza is yummy.” or,
“The Beatles are cool.” or,
“Oxygen is good.”.
I mean; who doesn’t like Fall? Fall means flannel p.j.s, apple butter on your toast, soup on the stove, sweaters back in the drawer, James Taylor on the MP3 player, and field trips to the Pumpkin Patch.
He didn’t even look up from his super, he just said, “It wasn’t a real cow Mom.”
I know that…
<Insert awkward transition here>
I have a dream…
A dream that someday I will get out of the shower and not hear screaming.
Alright. Here is were I warn you that the rest of this post is sewing/fabric related. So if your not interested please feel free to jump ship. I promise I won’t be offended; in fact I won’t even know that you did.
If you have ever wanted to try your hand at quilting, it doesn’t get much easier than a Wonky Log Cabin. I found a free tutorial online that had great instructions for making one.
I also got to go to the Pacific International Quilt Festival with my Mom last Saturday. What a great day that was! First, I got to just hang out with my Mom, which is always a fun treat, and we got our fill of quilts, fabric, buttons, and patterns.
My big splurge… a half a yard of Heather Ross’ “Far, Far, Away” linen. They don’t sell any Heather Ross locally so I was really excited to find some. I have a hard time using fabric I really love because I tuck it away to use for something special… but nothing ever seems special enough.
I’m hoping to do another sewing post soon. I’ve been working on some projects for myself and I thought I would share what I’ve been up to the last month in a half.
Wow. That was a long post. Thanks for stickin’ with me!
