Perhaps A Little Project...

 I'm enjoying just relaxing and spending time with Handsome and Tag. Just in
case I decide I'd like to work on something new, I've pulled two projects out of
my "To Do" Basket. (Yes. I do have a small basket I keep priority projects in.)
  One of the projects is a wool flag pincushion kit I purchased while in Wisconsin.
I could do all the handwork while sitting in my favorite chair. When that part is
finished, I'd just sashay into the studio to finish seaming it up on my new sewing
machine. It's not like I'd be working on a whole quilt.,,just a small pincushion.
Of course, a sweet, little autumn acorn pincushion would be appropriate.
Fall is right around the corner, and this would be just the perfect wee welcome.
I've been eyeing this wool tweed fabric project up for some time, too.
Tag went swimming yesterday afternoon. Then he spent the rest of the day
on his towel-covered bed, watching his pool. I caught his handsome profile 
when he wasn't looking. Right after I took this, I got the "disapproving Corgi"
look. Oh, well. You'd think the boy would be used to the camera by now.

Enjoy your Saturday. I have serious "nothing" on my list for today.

Planning A Restful Weekend...

My "Grace" necklace.
Remember that "creative imperative" I'm always telling you about?
Well, I think it's gone on a little break...and taken my sewing mojo along with it.

I'm sure it hasn't gone far - or for too long - but my attention span in the studio is 
like that of a four year old. I'm more content right now to dust and rearrange than 
actually sit down and make something. That doesn't happen to me very often.
"Grace" and sand dollar charms, with my "lucky" sixpence.
I'm looking forward to enjoying the holiday and taking a little time off.
I'll be posting over the weekend, but I'm going to concentrate on Handsome, 
Tag and homekeeping rather than playing in the studio. Maybe we'll head to
the beach or take a little day trip. I'm sure a cookout will be in order for Monday.
I have a knitting project to work on, and perhaps a little handwork, but I won't
be sitting at the sewing machine until next week. I'll grab my camera, like a
good blogger, and I'll be sure to take lots of pictures to share with you.
Labor Day is the last official holiday of summer. If you're anywhere north of
Jacksonville, soon the leaves will turn and there will be a little nip in the air. 
We always had a big party this weekend, followed by Labor Day Monday, when
 we cleaned up the yard, put away our lawn furniture and prepared for fall and the 
inevitable winter that followed. This weekend was always our farewell to summer.
So, have a great weekend, enjoy your time off...and please be safe. 
Happy Labor Day Weekend!
