Coming Attractions

Holy moly, the summer has come and gone! We've moved into another apartment here in Boulder, and I have to say, between prepping, actually moving then setting up home, I have been quite busy! I'm excited for the fall, however,  and I have been dreaming up lots of creations and adventures for the coming months.

Speaking of fall, Collette just gave a sneak peak at their Fall 2011 patterns! I'm kind of a huge dork- I've been anxiously waiting to see what they'd come up. As a result of this anticipated excitement, I've also decided to take part in Collette's "Fall Palette Challenge." After a summer filled with simple sundresses, the prospect of sewing some cozy separates has made this challenge all the more appealing.

The lovely Casey of "Elegant Musings" is also hosting a sew-along, sewing a circle skirt. It's funny considering how many full skirts I own, but I've never sewn a circle skirt. For this fact alone, I will be taking part in this challenge as well. I'm trying to figure a fabric of choice, which is currently between a light-weight polka dot fabric or a medium-weight wool houndstooth.

My Etsy shop is going to be going through some updates in the next couple of months, too. I have been brainstorming what I want the shop to be since I opened it, and it has always been my intention to incorporate some other items besides cards. It's going to be a gradual process, but I'll have more to speak of soon!

And there you have it, folks. I've made goals and I've put them down on the world wide web for everyone to see. Hope to see and hear what you're planing, too!
