I bought myself an iPad this week. It is kind of funny. I am about as low-tech as can be: no cable TV, still use a tracfone, etc, but I do love my Apple products. I saved up my hard earned sewing money from custom quilt orders and future book projects (eee, it's true!), and treated myself to a fun new gadget. One of my favorite new apps is Instagram. It is a quick and easy way to take pictures, if you are not familiar with it. I am slightly obsessed with it, in case you can't tell.
We had a good first week of school here. Weston is enjoying it, and I'm enjoying a quieter house and a schedule. I've gotten to spend more one-on-one time with the younger two. Though it is warm in the day, the autumn chill is creeping in during the night. It is getting me excited for some handsewing on the couch. Less time at the machine, more spent under quilts and afghans. I think the first thing I need to make is a sleeve for my iPad, maybe some English paper piecing? I haven't made any hexagons or diamonds in awhile. I'd like to make a heating pad cover too, that plaid has got to go. I also need to start a list of Christmas gifts that need to be made. Time to get planning!
How about you? Does your sewing and crafting change when fall comes rolling in?
