It's That Time of Year, Already!!!

Cooler weather, leaves changing, children back in school, and football...autumn is almost upon us and I am so ready. I love the change of season, especially this one. There is nothing like a crisp cool Friday night football game. Speaking of football, I have decided to make a homecoming mum for my brother to give to his girlfriend. What an interesting southern tradition of having one football game dedicated to giving your date a huge corsage of ribbons, plastic charms, and cowbells. This is every southern girl's dream...and the bigger the better!!! I can't wait to get started on making this one; I just need a few more things before I can get going. I will post a picture as soon as I am done.

Digging Up the Past

So, I made this for my sweet mommy for mother's day and failed to post it on my blog!!! I was so excited to give it to her I never took pictures to post it. Well, now I have and here it is. It is a great sewing organizer that goes under your machine. It has pockets and a tape measure (I can't tell you how many times I am at my sewing machine and have to get up to get my tape is so annoying). I also made a cute pin cushion that acts as a caddy that will hold your sewing essentials such as scissors, seam rippers, etc. My mom loves to sew too but always says she has no motivation. I thought maybe this would give her a little. She says she loves it and it makes easier access to everything she needs. This also makes a great gift for any seamstress. I will post it on my etsy site for anyone who might be interested.

Back From Boston

Paul Revere's House

The Old City Hall

This was a cool looking building. It looks as if it is going to crumble into the water at any minute.

Well, I have been back from Boston for almost a week now and I am still completely exhausted!!! What a beautiful city that is so rich in history. You would have to spend days upon weeks in order to cover it all. We went by Paul Revere's magnificent house. I absolutely love old homes and this one takes the cake of them all. We were also able to see things such as the building where Ben Franklin was Baptized, Samuel Adams grave, the first school built in the 1600s, and the list goes on and on. This city is for sure a great vacation spot for the history buff. On top of site seeing we caught The Blue Man Group and Jersey Boys. Both were awesome. Although I had lots of fun I am grateful to be back home.
