NOTABLE MENTIONS (4)...

... oooo it's been a little while since my last post I know.  My alternate Summer work schedule and life changes forced me to put my little blog on the back burner.  My past work week involved back to regular school  pre-planning -  STUDENTS RETURN ON WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 2ND ya'll!

The first 10 days of back to school is sooooo very hectic!  You'd think I'd be use to it by now, but it still makes me a wee bit nervous.

So as you've probably guessed not much new garment sewing going on here at all.  However, I have been doing some existing wardrobe alterations, repairs and in general sprucing up.  I hope to be back to "my slow sewing self" in just a little bit though. But in the meantime these interesting tidbits caught my eye...

    1. I'm happy Project Runway is on the way too Vanessa. Gives me sewing entertainment for weeks and weeks. Yes, summer happenings got the best of me but now I'm revamping my existing wardrobe in preparation of school starting.

  4. I am always stunned when you go back to school the first week of August, even though I know that's how it is in the south. This will be the first year since 1987 when I have not been sending a child off to school every day (college doesn't count), since my youngest starts college August 28th. How did he get to be so old?

    That said, have a good start to school; relax and let your school year schedule gradually envelop you. I know your students will love you and your inspirational work!
