Summer’s End

Today is the first of school for the kids and I’m ready to embrace routine and schedules and even some “me time” 😉  This summer has been a mixed bag of sorts with many wonderful moments celebrating family and togetherness and on the other end of the spectrum holding the hand of a dear one who is hurting more than words can begin to describe.  And so, life goes on and these sunny days with cool breezes will be replaced with crisp ones as the leaves begin to turn into all of their vibrant autumn hues.  The rain will be here once again as summer makes way for the arrival of fall.

It’s great to be back, I’ve really missed this space!

Let’s see… craftwise I’ve got nothing much to report (no surprise there, lol!)

I signed up for the Summer Sweater Knitalong hosted by Shannon of luvinthemommyhood.  I get no points for this one.  I’ve done a teensy bit of knitting on the sweater I picked for this KAL.  Fail!!

Twigs Willows 1

My knitting mojo will kick in when the weather gets cooler, I’m hoping.

I’ve got some sewing on the go too.  My son, Prithvi, drew me a doodle of a mason jar a few weeks ago knowing how I love all things vintage. (I’m coveting this aqua set even though I don’t need any more!)

Doodle Inspiration

I thought his drawing would look nice embroidered on fabric.  So, I traced it on to some linen and embroidered it with simple stitches. A few bits of pretty fabric on the sides, insulating layers underneath and I’ve got a pot holder on the go!

I think I’ll make a mate sans stitchery to go with this one.

My computer time has been pretty sketchy these past couple months with so many summer related goings on and other stuff.  I’m not a big fan of reading emails and getting through my blog queue on my phone (maybe I need new glasses, heh!) and so I haven’t been online very much. I’m so behind on blog reading and commenting and I have not been on Ravelry in weeks! Time to rectify that.

Happy September all 🙂

    You did not fail on the KAL, you just had other priorities. Life, it happens. I have your friend in my prayers.

    Hi Preeti, sometimes getting back to our routines gives us balance in our lives. Lovely potholder ! Looking forward to seeing you again on Monday.

    I’d be skipping and hopping every day to school too if the roads were painted brightly like that! You are an absolute angel for being a rock to your friend in need. I know she appreciates what you are doing for her.
