Wow. I can't believe I'm blogging. I've missed this part of my life the past few days. After a wonderfully full weekend of time with visiting family (and soon-to-be family--see below), I went in to work Tuesday to find out my new full-time position had been finalized, and that I should start working full-time. Tuesday. After full days this week, I've been enjoying the not so hot and less humid evenings outside with the pup. It feels almost like fall!
I do, however, have a few works in progress that I hope to get back to this weekend. I've made a prototype for the boutonnières for my brother's autumn-themed wedding in October. His fiance was down for her bridal shower, and she seemed happy with it. We saw the idea in Martha Stewart Weddings last fall. I'll add the flowers just before the wedding. She's come up with a lot of other fall touches that I can't wait to see.
And I'm working on an inspiration board to go over my sewing table. I left the other board I made in the guest bedroom because it matched the rest of the room so well. For this board, I'm using some of my favorite-right-now fabrics. Well, I've liked the green one (from Joann) for some time, but I love these two new ones--one is Heather Bailey, bought on sale from reprodepot, and the other was a gift from another Jacksonville blogger--thanks Tiffany!
Well, I have high hopes for fall, as do many other bloggers it seems. I'm getting organized and making plans. Our students return next week, so I'm feeling the back to school excitement, too.
