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 more: Participate 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
Baby dresses for summer (as Christmas gifts)
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
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.
