Good grief, where does the time go? Timelines are kind of skewed the last few weeks for me, just trying to get my back in proper working order, which has meant lots of appointments and driving time each week. But, the good news is, I’m about 90% better, and after this most recent episode, I have got to make myself a solemn promise to do my exercises, strengthen and stretch, and take good care of this age old herniated disc injury.
JR and I were talking the other day, and I was trying to explain how having a back injury can just about suck the life out of me. I try not to let it get me down, but it really does diminish what I feel like and can do. Top that with 90 degree days, and my sewing room being un-air conditioned…blah, blah, blah. You know what I’m saying. Enough of that. Life is good.
Usually when I’ve been in a sewing slump, I need to jumpstart by just straightening my sewing room, organizing my stash and reviewing projects.
|yes, this is my mess.|

Could you die over some of the new Vogue patterns? Audrey has already made a jaw-dropping version of Vogue 1316. Some of my other favorites?
I get the email updates from Burda and was blown away by this new batch of patterns:
|The French Retro Collection|
|have I already started my Fall shopping?|
I love the idea of the updated military look that continues, contrasted by everything ladylike and feminine and curvy, including dresses and suits.
Lately I started reading a new fashion blog...Wardrobe Oxygen…I love when women accept their bodies the way they are and show us how to love fashion no matter what our size or shape. Alison has a great sense of style, and she is refreshing and realistic, too. So check out Wardrobe Oxygen for a bit of wardrobe inspiration.
So many looks, so little time! But until then, there are still five more weeks of summer….
But, what have you got your eye on for Fall?
