Heh, just realized I jumped into the future last week as it actually said 10/9 in the title before I changed it
Anticipating… A great time in New Jersey/New York due to all the wonderful ideas!! Thank goodness for blogs too because I just found out that I am going to NY on the first Yarn Crawl of the City! I hope to visit a few while I am there but neither my mom or my aunt are knitters so I don’t want to bore them. Between Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market, Housing works thrift stores (various locations), Purl Soho, and Mood that is a pretty busy schedule for only 1.5 days of shopping in NY. The rest will be quality time with the extended family.
Oh and I still need some help with can’t miss NJ/NY food choices too.
If you know of any good places to eat near any of the locations I stated above please do tell. If you have an eatery suggestion that is not near any of these locations but is so good I need to make the journey, please share that too as the schedule is still pretty flexible.
Loving… My new Cathrineholm pot…soon to be POTS!! I got my first one and the quality of this pot is fantastic!! So the fact that it looks gorgeous is just icing on the cake. These are not show piece pots though so I will be scoping some recipes that call for dutch ovens so I can giggle to myself now that I actually have one.
Savoring… the new Fall-ish weather. I love it when it is chilly but not bitterly cold and that time is now. I am dreaming of stews, crusty bread, and knitting. LOVE the fall.
Knitting… The Heathered Hoodie Vest. I know I said that before but now I have proof!! The yarn is so yummy. I am loving this knit.
Sewing… some quicky projects such as my new reversible sewing machine cover. I used some Orla Kiely tea towels I found at GW Consignment for $1.99, some fusible fleece, and some leftover ribbon I had from a gift. Process: I fused fleece to orange side, trimmed everything up, sewed the sides with ribbon in seam, turned inside out, sewed bottoms together. A few hours later and I had a quick cover for my machine that lives in the cabinet.

I plan on making another fully enclosed cover for my portable machine and serger.
I am also feeling another Weekender Bag. I have this great upholstery weight fabric from JoAnn’s that is just screaming to be a Weekender. Better get out my oyster shucking gloves to fend off all the pin pricks.
Dreaming… about work and my co-workers which is a sign that I am really stressed out. Hope this vacation gets me back into restful sleep.
Planning… some wallpaper DIY projects. I got some wallpaper samples from Hygge and West. One will be to decorate the inside of my sewing cabinet.
Here is what it SHOULD look like…kinda.
Also I got this great bird print sample that fits perfectly on a future jewelry box project.
Alright so it is time to get packing I will talk to you all soon!! Have a great weekend
