Seasons Change...

Fall is hands down my favorite time of the year! With the cooler weather and the crisp air in the morning, it always puts me in the mood to start creating even more. Can you imagine all the projects running through my head?! This could be a problem! ;)

With running kids everywhere from carpool, baseball, guitar lesson and now softball, it seems like I am spending half my day in the car...waiting. Knitting is the only way I keep my sanity waiting for kids to do their thing. This is the latest project on my needles, this fantastic round baby blanket. I love knitting baby blankets and having them in my stash for when I need a quick baby present. Lately it seems like everyone is popping out babies so I am adding to my stash with this beauty!

Nothing worse than having to run to the store to try and pick out a present for your kids friend.  Problem solved...I have a different stash, kid presents! This is my latest kid present. This darling notebook cover holds a composition notebook and like 8 pens or pencils. You can never have enough pens, am I right?! A great gift for anyone if you ask me! This project was so fun. 
Learn how to make pleats (that actually keep their shape!) 

Many of our students are advancing and moving on up to the next level. This is so exciting!! We love seeing them catch the sewing bug. On Level Two they will be learning to sew more clothes, which if you ask me is a must! This sweatshirt if made out of French Terry cloth. You will never want to take it off!I would wear it every day if the weather would cooperate! :) Sewing with knits can be tricky, but we have some tricks that will make it so fun!

 So with the Holidays just around the corner, better start thinking of all those projects you will be wanting to make. Make a list and start creating! 

Happy Sewing Friends!
