I also know summer is winding down because my need for routine (school, homework, early bedtimes, showers, pack lunches) is kicking in. My body isn't sleeping in anymore (thank God!) I don't like to sleep in..... go ahead, spit at your screen!
I've been getting up early (5am a few times) to sneak to the basement and sew. Go ahead, spit again!
I had a wonderful summer! Very relaxing and a very enjoyable summer. I discovered a new favorite town, Pentwater, MI. We went there several times while camping in Mears. Spent lots of time with my family, which one will never regret!
Life is picking back up, it seems. Things are getting put on the calendar, indicating that Fall is around the corner and that brings school, sports & our towns annual festival! School supplies have been in stores since July 5th & I scorned them at first. But then like any nerd, I started picking up packs of paper and grazing the aisles of office stores. I love a fresh notebook, even if it is for my kids. New packs of pencils, my oldest enjoys mechanical ones! Squeal!
I didn't do much sewing over the summer. That was planned. I had determined in the Spring, that I wasn't spending my hot summer days downstairs in a cool basement! I was going to enjoy it, and enjoy it I did!
The lil' alice shop is back up and running. I am finding that I want to be down there. I have orders coming in that need to be met with great customer service, so I need to get my game on!
Here are 2 aprons that I have whipped up in the early morning hours this week. They were custom orders, so they are not for sale. But if you find yourself doing some early Christmas shopping (did I just say that....) or you are coming indoors to do some Fall baking, order yourself a mighty cute apron to go with your batch of cookies!
Enjoy the last dog days of Summer before school starts!
