Busy, busy fall is upon us! School and soccer and snacks and lovely crisp air and open studios and sun that will still burn you and back to church and messy messy house and trying to fit it all in.
Yesterday was crazy in a I-was-so-busy-I-didn't-get-anything-done kind of way. So today I said that we were going to go out into the world and do something productive that made us feel like the creative fun gals we used to be still are. So we went to open studios in the city. It was a beautiful day for it and I wish I took more pictures. I got a great new mug for school which I tell you all about later. I also got a sweet necklace made out of a vintage thimble.
Cute right? The teeny scissors really open and they make the thimble ding like a bell. I love it. It was hand made by Twitch and Whiskers, you should check out her blog and she's got tons more cute things over on her Etsy shop.
Now as promised some pictures of the finished pillow I posted about earlier...
I'm quite pleased with the way it turned out and so may be making more pillow covers in the near future. This is a vintage needle point pattern and I used up the last of my linen stash. The back is an envelope closure, easy peasy. It took about an hour with many interruptions from little ones.
The verse is the Lord's Prayer and I love the alternating colors of the lines, so pretty.
I'll leave you with last week's bento snacks, Monday's didn't photograph well, I wanted to send apples and honey for Rosh Hashanah but couldn't think of anything cuter to do with the apple. And Friday's snack was actually saved for Monday because my guy was sick. Oh well, that means I'm ahead for this week right?
