I work at a university and today marked the return of some of my students. Tomorrow, we leave to go on retreat with the student leaders overnight (let me tell you how excited I am to go sleep in the woods with the mosquitoes and 50 of my students). By Thursday or Friday, pretty much everyone will be back. So, I think I'm fully gearing up for fall. So to fully celebrate the coming fall, I made these this weekend with some yarn from the stash. They are made with Rowan Plaid and it was super great to work with - these were a combination of patterns and were done in about 4 hours. I have enough of the yarn left to make a hat, which I will do eventually. I also worked on my Anything But Basic Black Sweater. I didn't get too far but at least made a little progress.
No sewing this weekend.... for some reason the sewing machine wasn't inspiring. I really need to get cracking on the red dress I'm making. I'm also planning on making some pretty big alterations to the Olive It Dress because well, I don't love it. Hopefully later this week I'll get motivated.
Now, it's time for a small dinner and a little nap on the couch..... then packing for retreat!
