The last hurrah of summer has begun! Even if the calendar didn’t give away the truth, the local fair starts in one week and that has always been a sign that summer is almost over. Of course, that just means one must enjoy every last drop of sun and warmth! Something I most definitely plan on doing! And with that said, construction on my house is coming to an end and I couldn’t be happier. I am looking forward to enjoying the last bright days sipping iced tea on my front porch. Gives me chills just thinking about it. 🙂
My kitchen has been quite a busy little spot as I have just finished canning dill pickles and salsa! Yum!! All I have left to do is can tomatoes in a few weeks and my pantry will be stuffed to the gills. If any of you haven’y tried canning yet, I highly recommend it as it gives such a sense of accomplishment. Just make sure not to do it all in one day….it can be a little too overwhelming.
I have also finished recording a three part sewing series that will start this week! It was very fun to create and I plan to make more as time goes on. If you have any ideas or skills that you would like to see, please let me know in the comments. I am also in the beginning stages of developing online sewing lessons focusing on vintage and historical sewing. More details to come in the future!
In my historical sewing world, I have had fun for the past two weeks getting back into Regency sewing. While nothing replaces the passion I have for sewing vintage, it was such a thrill to delve back into a style I haven’t done much with in a few years. Here are few pictures of my latest creations:
Many of these are now available for custom order on my Etsy shop! 🙂
I do, however, want to take this opportunity to let you know that there will be one new change coming to my blog starting today. I have decided to go down from posting three times a week to two times a week. This is by no means a sign that I am going to stop blogging or that I am going to become inconsistent with my blogging, it is simply a way to create better, more content rich posts for you. I am eager to begin offering more historical/vintage sewing videos and tutorials and since these take more time, having a slightly smaller posting schedule will allow me the extra time I need. So, instead of Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, I will be posting Monday and Friday. I hope you understand and are just excited as I am for the new sewing posts to come!
