I hit up the Joann's Columbus Day sale today and got a 99 cent Simplicity jacket pattern that I'm pretty excited about--3628. I like how shaped it is. Since I'll have a 3 day weekend next weekend, I'll have some time to work on it then.
Yesterday I cleaned out the living room and den closets, put together shelving, and purged. So there wasn't a lot of time for crafting and sewing.
Here was my 5 minute crafting project. I found the fruit and pinecone picks during the purge and just shoved them into a grapevine wreath--I didn't have to glue them in. I wired up the wreath and put it on the front door.
I think I might play with the orientation of some picks. Right now it looks like a 5 minute effort, ha!
I found some flannel scraps. I just love these apples. I made the scrap into a mini-pillowcase for this tiny Ikea pillow I use for my neck:
And I finally put pockets in the Tweety bird bathrobe I made last year, using some scraps for the pockets.
There was a frost warning last night, but my flowers didn't look too too bad this morning, just a little shriveled:
Princeton Farmer's Market flowers this week:
Possibly my last rose of the year:
And hooray for cupcakes from LaBon, which I picked up on the way to JoAnn's.
Oh! and at Johanna Lu's urging I watched Eleven Minutes, the documentary about Jay McCarroll's first runway show after Project Runway. Highly recommend!
