The best intentions pave the way to … well in my case they lead to panic! I know I’m not the only one who does it (because even my sister does). I’m not alone in my procrastination. They even make a sign to tell you to plan ahead. It didn’t really print so well but gets the idea across. I’m putting away the unfinished 4th of July project (until June of 2017) and I AM planning ahead for fall. Maybe because it reminds me of cooler temps!
I got out fabrics for the whole color palette and just feel cooler touching fabric of the yellow-orange-gold to brown color family. OK, so they really aren’t in the same color family but it all says fall to me. If you are looking for inspiration to begin a project, check out our Etsy store here. I’m going to start with the smaller items first (casserole cover and bread wrap) and work toward dressing up the table.
Don’t you love those pilgrim figures? They are the cutest! I just wanna put on that hat and buckles on my shoes. Guess I’ll settle for the apron. I’m not sure I’m ready for the whole primitive life style thing.
The thermometer isn’t going the direction I recommend yet but I’m feeling “thankful” that it is coming soon and I’ll be better prepared. Besides I heard that this heat wave should be treated like a blizzard. You just bury yourself in the sewing room and don’t come out. While you’re in there, you might want to start on a wool project that won’t make you overheat-like this fall runner. Use those vintage orphan blocks or make a new one on your own.
Last but not least, if you only have a moment between swim lessons and mowing, then check out the free coaster pattern under the brag book tab in our PS Projects. Happy Fall, Ya’ll.
