I know Fall officially started on September 22 but as far as I’m concerned it started yesterday. Because yesterday it was finally cool enough to wear my favorite sweater and today I wore my pumpkin colored scarf that was my very first knitting project. And then I found this:
Pumpkins for sale! A golden opportunity to revisit one’s youth and indulge one’s creativity. I’m feeling very tempted to carve one this year. Hmmm…. will I have time? Usually I buy the pumpkin but then never carve it and just rots on the front porch. No porch or yard this year but I could set it on the worktable so it can be seen thru the window??? Does this mean I have to buy Halloween candy too?? I must think more on this. Do I want silly, mean, goofy, evil???
I finished one of the projects on my Mission Possible list. A very Fall themed shopping bag.
And last week I made (and wore when it was still warm enough) a skirt out of the organic cotton and bamboo voile I got in San Francisco last summer.I’m very happy with the way it turned out. I’d like to think I’m on a very productive roll but I have to be honest- It’s because the clothes for the next opera were shipped from the rental house later than anticipated so I had a lot of free time last week. I also started the jacket that hopefully will go with the skirt but now that the costumes are here who knows when I will get back to it.
I am going to miss SAFF this year but well, my budget won’t. Instead I’m spending the weekend turning the closets around. Emptying everything out and switching the summer things for the winter ones. It’s about time…I need to find my sweaters.
