Fall Fun List Success

  • An autumn festival (already scheduled, just need to ask off) with my grandparents
  • Join in on our family Ladies Shopping Day; I have only been able to join on show-and-tell the last few times. We’ve tried to have 1-2 shopping days with the ladies in Mom’s extended family where we shop at antique stores and consignment shops with a break for lunch and an end of day after snack and show-and-tell showcasing our finds at the end. So much fun.
  • Spend lots of time with my niece and take lots of good photos. Since I’ve gotten a new phone, I’ve gotten some photos and videos, mostly videos. It’s more fun just to talk to her and watch her though.
  • Maybe a autumn hiking trip. No.
  • Buy all my planning stuff for next year. I bought some, not the fun stuff though and that after fall
  • Read tons moreParticipate in Classics Club dare and read 5 more from list. I did read a ton more, just not much from the Classics Club although I did start War and Peace.
  • Work on blog development a bit (Genesis, IP, spam, disclosure). No.
  • Make serious dent in my sewing stash. I haven’t sewn at all.
    • Finish second smocked baby dress ASAP
    • Two more business skirts
    • Fall dresses and skirts

    • Tons of baby bows and such
  • Make a serious dent in my knitting stash. No, but I’ve done a little at using up some odd balls and leftovers by making one bonnet for my niece as well as two more in different sizes and starting a fourth plus a bit for Christmas.
    • Knit at least one sweater and sweater dress for me
    • Baby sweaters, rompers, sweater dresses. I finished my niece’s shrug and just started her sweater dress, after Christmas
    • Socks for me
    • Baby socks
  • Dress up as Audrey Hepburn from How to Steal a Million for Halloween. Maybe next year.
  • Start working on regency outfit. No, I could have at least make some mock-ups, I have plenty of scraps/muslin for some of that, but I lacked the motivation.
