I didn't take my usual June vacation because airline tickets were off the chart. I was able to schedule time off during fall break early in October so I still have something great to look forward too. October will be here before I know it.
Lately I've been dreaming about Fall sewing plans, this is so not like me! I'm the one that usually has problems switching sewing seasons - always feeling there's so much more I'd love to make for the current season. Not this year folks! I've already got plans people; not to mention patterns and fabrics. Matter of fact, I can already see myself wearing those first six garments - in my minds eye that is. I really don't think they'll take much time to whip up either - but that's just my mind talking ya'll. Jackets, tops and dresses - those six pieces are going to be f-a-b-u-l-o-u-s!
Today at our opening session (over 2,500 teachers present) these were the prominent colors that jumped out at me.
How pretty! So primary! So attainable in knit fabrics; and three of these colors are already living in my stash.
Otherwise I have managed to start a nice top - paying homage to my blogger friend Merche and a beautiful Patrones silk top she made back in June. I started it last weekend and would have finished but for a humbling mistake. I sewed the necktie on backwards that resulted in it tying on the right instead of the left. I tried to make myself live with it, but had to grit my teeth to remove all my teeny tiny hand stitches to take it off and do it again.

p.s. I'm not absolutely loving Bloglovin. It's o.k. but takes f-o-r-e-v-e-r to pull up on my phone even with 4G. I'm glad that I also transferred over to Feedly. Just saying...
