Well, there was no blogging last week. I had high blogging hopes, but they just didn’t pan out. With the exception of sitting in front of the computer to pay bills one day, I haven’t been on this computer since almost this time last week. Today I have a good part of the day to do whatever it is that I want, and I want to blog. I’ve got some catching up to do…
Last week, it was much like every other week, but here are a few of the things that stood out.
My blogiversary! I signed up for a WordPress blog seven years ago on the 12th of November, 2009. It started as a travel journal for the traveling that I didn’t do near enough, so from there it became what it is today. Here’s my first ever post if you are interested in reading about that time we went with my guy on his ‘business trip’ to Florida.
The super moon was last week and we remembered that we had a telescope. I bought the telescope several years back; it was a Black Friday special. And like many of my Black Friday specials, it was pretty useless. For the first couple of weeks it was cool, but after that it became a permanent dust collector in the corner of my bedroom. Well, the guys in the house pulled it out to see the super moon on Monday while I was at the gym. I got home and had a look through it myself, and it was pretty awesome through the telescope. My guy took a few pictures with his iPhone and they came out way better than what I would have taken. So here is one he sent me to post. Now that it is on the computer, I can tell it’s a little blurry, sorry.
I did a little fabric shopping last week, and I also found some fabric that is now on my To Buy, ASAP list. (I know I can’t be the only one with that list.) This is a repost pic from Instagram, which I where I came across the most beautiful fabric of the moment. The material is from Spoon Flower, a site from which I am dying to buy some fabric, and it was already a repost from the user @stalecupcakes. I always love a nice bit of sewing inspiration.
Lastly from last week, I enjoyed a Pontoon boat ride in the state park to see some of the changing leaves as viewed from the water. My guy and I went a couple of weeks earlier to take pics, but we only walked around that day, but getting to go out on the water was really neat. (I do love this time of the year!) It was also 80 degrees the day of the boat ride, not much like fall at all. I have another post in the works with pics from those outings that should be up soon. Hopefully before the leaves all fall off of the trees anyway.
That about sums up last week in my life. Now, it’s time to edit some pictures. My guys are watching football and then headed out to assemble a trampoline. I don’t reckon they need me for any of that, so that just means more free time for me and my blog. I should be back soon enough…

Happy blogiversary! That spoonflower fabric is awesome. I’ve got some fabric arriving from them this week from their b1g1f fat quarter sale.

Thank you! It is awesome fabric, isn’t it. I can’t wait to get my hands on some. Ooh, you will be having a happy mail delivery day soon. What are you making with yours?
I’m making tea towels with the fat quarters. A quick and easy Christmas gift. They did a blog post about making tea towels a long time ago. Their linen cotton canvas is perfect for this.
Not to be a fabric enabler but did you get Spoonflowers Black Friday email? They have 10% off.
That sounds like a nice and easy project. I just looked and, yes, I did get the email. 🙂 I may end up with more fabric sooner than I thought.
Let me know if you buy the fabric. I’ve had a circle skirt on my Spoonflower wish list for a while. I’m debating about buying it. It would be a simple sew, just cut it out and cut a hole for my waist and add elastic and hem. But it’s not wintery and I don’t know what I would wear with it. I’ll have to think on it some more. They rarely have sales too. Decisions, decisions. LOL
Well, I didn’t end up buying anything from SpoonFlower. I am regretting it now. I did buy a few new patterns that I wanted from Sew Serendipity, so I am happy about that. I will have to make my Spoonflower splurge another day. I got that email about a $500 giveaway so I entered. Hopeful… 😉
I didn’t buy anything either. I love Sew Serendipity patterns. I think I found your blog googleing a review for one of her patterns. The Corinne Caftan dress is in my to sew pile. I have the same fabric as the black boarder print cover dress. If you want to sew any Sew Serendipity patterns together email me. Can you see my email via your blog?
Yes, your email shows up in my comment folder. Sewing a pattern together sounds fun. 🙂 I will get in touch. It probably won’t be until the beginning of the year when I get started on any new Serendipity patterns. I have a few other projects half finished that I’d like to get to before the end of this year. Let’s see how that goes…
