July End of the Month Wrap-up

It's hard to believe that it's the end of July already...August and Fall are just right around the corner! So it's time to do another monthly recap. The month of July is always good to me sewing-wise. I don't know if it's because the days are longer so I have more energy or because there is a holiday at the beginning of the month, or what? But my productivity is always a little better around this time of the year.

This month I completed four garments and started two others. I purchased some fabric during the latter days of June that arrived in July but it wasn't an exorbitant amount for me! *LOL* So I'm okay on that front.

However, to me July was about finishing the Gelato collection and adding some much needed color to my work wardrobe - a goal I successfully completed. And this year it was about fall too! You can tell there is a recession going on because retailers seem to be pushing Autumn earlier this year...or is that just me?

Anyway, I'm looking forward to fall/autumn sewing...I've got a plan and 9 days off from work in September so I'm ready.

A parting shot...The Little Prince is now 4.5 months old!



As always....more later!
