Good Intentions

I had the best of intentions today - I wanted to get out some of my fall decorations and start putting them out.  I didn't exactly get that far, but I guess it's good that I am starting to think of it - I might actually get it done by the time it is really fall!  Instead I spent the day finishing up some alterations and doing some work around the house. 

I took in a wedding gown at the zipper, added pockets to three skirts, hemmed a dress and shortened the front on two of those popular sweaters that drape in the front.  I changed thread on my serger four times, used the rolled hem plate and the blindhem foot.  I used my seam ripper a lot, but only a couple times for something I stitched.  I only had to shut Scamper out of my room once, so I could pin a hem for a dress (good thing my customer likes kittens - he was really being a pest!).  And I even took a few minutes to clean up all the thread when I was done before I shut the door - pretty nice!

Now I am relaxing in front of the tv now with hubby and catching up on my blog reading before bed.  I've missed this so much over the summer.  It will be nice to spend quiet evenings at home for a change instead of running like a crazy person.  Well, except for Wednesday nights.  I'm teaching a beginners class for the next 11 weeks.  I have 7 students and I think we are going to have a fabulous time!  I like everyone already, this will be a very boisterous group, I think.  Should be interesting.....

Hopefully tomorrow I can do some quilting - I brought home a new shop- sample to make yesterday.  Black, red and white - can't wait to play with the fabric!
