The Boy is leaving for another work trip tomorrow, so I’m going to have some additional free time this week (hopefully, without incident this time). Because some people *cough* Michael *cough* think that its too early to decorate for my favorite holiday, I’ve started preparing our apartment for Fall. So far I’ve made a black and white, striped wreath for Halloween (you may have seen it if you follow me on Twitter). To make it a little less Beetlejuice, I added some yellow, felt flowers and a coordinating ribbon for hanging. I’m still trying to decide on other embellishments though.
While he’s gone this week, I can pretty much do whatever I want to the apartment and it gets to stay “as is” upon his return (right? ha!). Here are a few of the projects I want to start this week and continue throughout the Fall.
How cute is the idea of fabric covered photo mats?!
A picture mason jar
A two handed potholder…perfect for removing turkeys, hams, pies and casseroles from the oven. I could’ve gone further with that, but I’m sure that y’all get the idea!
But what I really want to make is…
I just need to concur my fear of making a top without my mom around! She settles my nerves, y’all. If I mess up, she knows how to fix it…or make it something I never would have thought of. The power of being a mom I guess.
Let me know what you’re sewing up/cooking up/crafting up this Fall!
