All in a week

Happily, the amazing snowfall that surprised us right out of warm, lovely weather a week ago finally melted off over the weekend.  That storm knocked out our power along with over 50,000 other residents last Wednesday and assaulted nearly every deciduous tree in the city.  Seriously.  You would not believe the number of branches that were split from trees due to the weight of all that snow.  Some trees were literally broken to pieces and will have to be cut down.  So sad.  A week later, our weather has swung back up into the low 20s and if it wasn't for all the damage to the trees, I would think last week's heavy snow fall and freezing temps were a bad dream!
 
Fall has returned and I'm happy to mark it with pulling out a few autumn coloured fabrics to work with.

The difference a day can make

Yesterday, we left the city for a beautiful afternoon of hiking in the woods.

The month that was

August flew past and the funny thing is, I look around and I don't feel as if I accomplished much.  Maybe that's because other than the canning I've been doing, all the sewing last month was for gift giving.  I do love making and giving handmade gifts, but am ready to get back to work on the many other projects that need completing (ahem, such as that crazy, long as my arm, list of patterns that I should be writing...;o). Before I settle in to finishing prototypes and such, how about a quick pictorial review of August's sewing?
 

Looking back over the past month via pictures, I realize I did keep busy and I had a lot of fun. :o)

Here's the round-up...

Bucket hats from Oliver + SSwirling Star Blocks; Sugar & Spice ruffle skirts from Pink Fig Designs;  Hair Accessories (headband and crochet flower hair elastic); Velvet and sequin drawstring pouch;  Ruffle skirts close-up; Nautical label on soon to be revealed gift (and one of the patterns I need to get written up... ;o)
