I slept late today. It was nearly 10:30 when I finally dragged myself out of bed. It felt pretty wonderful!
After a hot shower and “breakfast” at the time when most people eat lunch, I took the boys out for a nice four mile walk. It was sort of perfect weather for a walk. The sun came and went as we walked, there was a lovely smell of fall leaves in the air, and the temperature at 54 was perfect for walking.
When we got home from our walk I checked my phone and saw that a group of pickleball players were putting together some open play and were looking for players. So I changed clothes, grabbed my paddle and an apple and hit the road. I played for almost two hours and had an absolute blast.
I had intended to get more done around the house to prepare for company next weekend. I didn’t get done as much as I had wanted but I managed to change and launder the sheets in my guest room and get the room all cleaned and ready to go. I also cleaned out my utility room, folded a bunch of clean laundry and cleaned off the dining table and kitchen counter. So I did get some stuff done.
It’s supposed to rain all day tomorrow so I’ll have plenty of opportunity to do house work.
After dinner I hit my sewing room again and finished up another bucket bag that I had cut out and prepped a few weeks ago. When these are all cut and fused it doesn’t take very long to get them all sewn together and finished.
I just love that denim with the gorgeous batik lining. I used some interfacing on this lining so the bag is a little more substantial than the one I finished last night.
And the obligatory photo of my tag… just because I love the details!
Since I got this done so quickly I decided to prep the next bag I had planned to make. So I pressed the fabrics, cut them to size, cut the interfacing and got it adhered to the fabric.
This will be all ready to sew together at some point in the day tomorrow
Look at how cute that fabric is!
I’m all ready for the time change tonight, but that doesn’t mean I like it. I really do HATE the time change I the fall. In the dead of winter her in Portland it’s dark at 4:00 in the afternoon. I always tell myself that If I an just hang on until Dec 21, I can make it the rest of the winter as we get a little more light as the days go by.
Only four months until we get that extra hour of evening light back!
