The past week whizzed by in that special way early fall weather brings. We've had a few warm days that make us think summer is going to linger, interspersed with cooler days (that have me wearing polar fleece and putting flannel sheets on my bed! ;o). Each day seems to bring different weather! There's no denying that we're into a new season - leaves are turning and there's frost in the forecast.
|A bit of hand sewing is the finishing touch to this small project.|
This week also brought with it a special celebration in our household - another milestone for 2015 (the first, our 25th wedding anniversary last month, and now having our youngest turn 21. How did that happen so fast?!? ;o). I love that even though both sons are grown, they always look forward to me baking a favourite cake to mark their birthday. The birthday boy requested a Ginger - Carrot cake that also includes plenty of raisins and pecans, with a mix of orange juice and maple syrup drizzled over it. It's delicious, but always brings a session of teasing because his older brother hates raisins (talk about opposite tastes! LOL... ;o).
My sewing this week has been a little bit like our weather - a mixed bag of projects, that included some block making, some garment cutting out, a quick prototype for shoe covers (that will allow wearing shoes indoors on the finished floors of a job we're trying to finish) and finally a bit of hand sewing on a small, sweet project. It seemed busy, but no major finishes to report. ;o) I did try to take some WIP photos earlier this week, but didn't have much success. Lucky for me, today was one of the nicer days, so I can share decent photos of my most recent finish for tomorrow. Hope your week has been a good one!
