How is it that I find myself in Autumn already? Life has been so busy lately that each day, week, month just seems to have blended into the next. I almost feel like I wasn’t even a part of January, or February either for that matter. Talk about Ground Hog day!
Even though we are still experiencing hot days here in the West I find myself yearning to pick up the needles and hook. In fact, over the weekend I frogged the cardigan I started for myself last winter. Some would be shocked that I unravelled it with only the lower hem to go but I just wasn’t feeling it any more. The efforts of my unravelling are sitting here waiting patiently for me to decide on a new project…a shawl perhaps or some knee high socks?
With the approach of the cooler months I’ve been thinking more and more about comfort food. As much as I adore the salads we live on over the summer months I am much more a hearty meal kind of girl. In anticipation of all the winter cooking I plan on doing I’ve made a few purchases in the book department, now to find the time to actually sit down and read them…does any body else read a cookbook from cover to cover?
All my creating of late has centred around sewing frocks. Since my December launch I’ve sent off over a dozen frocks into the world and made a dozen more…it’s been exhilarating and frightening all at the same time, not to mention busy. Plans are underway for a few different style frocks and a giveaway of my original Suzie dress. I also hope to find the time to add a few handmade pieces to mine and the kids wardrobes.
What's been happening in your world lately?
