Wrapping up summer


I can't believe it's the end of August already. Like most people, I've been busy wrapping up the end of summer and preparing for the changes of the season ahead. My summer isn't quite over yet though. Peter and I are jetting off to Bali in a few days for a vacation/post-bar trip. Yahoo! Soon after we get back we're moving to a new apartment. And you thought my blogging over the past two weeks has been sparse! So it's been little crafting over here - just packing and preparing. I finally forced myself to pack my fabric (four boxes worth) so I can stop kidding myself that I have time to sew. I'm looking forward to opening up those boxes in a few weeks in a new place in a new room dedicated to sewing alone.

The tea towels and coasters above are a little gift I whipped up in some few spare moments.

The tea towel and coasters are beautiful. Have a wonderful vacation, and good luck with your move. See you on the other side when you settle into your new sewing room!

Stephanie- have a great trip! i always found a new apartment a great new adventure! although, a ton of work... good luck.And a whole room dedicating for sewing trumps the back deck on a beautiful day!

Wow, Bali sounds amazing - have a great time! You are going to love having a sewing room, it's so inspiring to just walk in there and shut the door :-)

OOOHHHH I LOVE the coasters and tea towels. I was just lamenting that I have boring tea towels and these beauties arrived on my door step. I'll be taking the coasters to work cause they'll be great for my tea and hot chocolate in the morning:) Thank you so much:):)
