Lazy Summer Days...What?

I did not have many lazy summer days. It would have been lovely, yet it wasn't written in the stars I suppose. Lots of trips, lots of decisions to make, and many projects to tackle (few involved sewing). As I sit here now, I ponder where did my summer go? Did anyone see it? I think it rushed by without visiting me. How about any of you? Were you granted a lazy summer or were you so rudely skipped? I need to face the cold-hearted's gone and it won't be back until next year, right? I'm still a little out of sorts, but the Fall will bring me out of it, I'm positive! Considering it's my favorite time of year! Yes...I'm an Autumn girl at heart. The cool, crisp mornings and beautiful ever-changing colors get me every single time. I love the new beginnings of school days, the excitement in the air...the kids wondering whose class they will be in, new faces, pumpkins casting their orange glow, picking out fun costumes to create, preparing for the Holiday season and visits from family. It makes me giddy inside just writing it all down! Sorry if I'm losing you here, I don't mean to shove it in your face, but I seriously can't help myself...please forgive me if you don't feel the same way. I know it can be hectic too...full of uncertainty, but I like to focus on the newness of it all...

On another note, with the "J" crew all back in school this year, I found a little free time. Yes, my dear ladies I had some crafty business to attend to. I found this Alexander Henry Sew Now, Sew Wow fabric over the summer, and it was love at first sight! I had to have it. Finally decided today was the day to create something with it. I whipped up this cute little sewing machine cover in about an hour...very normally would only take maybe 30 min. but I was up & down, up & know how it is, always have a zillion things going at once. I used this little tutorial on What can I get myself into now?
