I do have a plan though...loosely based upon what I've already seen of the new fall trends. I'm planned another wardrobe...and as an aside I would definitely say that this year my sewing has been all about wardrobe sewing. I put together the Lavender and Gray Wardrobe in the beginning of the year, the 10 Yard Adventure Wardrobe for spring/early summer wearing and now my fall plan which doesn't have a snazzy name as yet. There is also a cool dress adventure planned too, which should get my sewing through the end of the year.
Now I've got a plan that I'm pretty pysched about so how does that tie into the new fall trends? Well I will add a few of the "new" colors though this year I'm actually feeling like they are recycled. And, I'm concentrating on classics this fall so if I find one or two trendy items I like I may or may not make them...because I'm returning to classic elegance this fall. Oh that's a great name, maybe I should call my fall wardrobe that...
So like I said that's what's on my horizon...right now its still summer around these parts even if the magazines and retail internet sites say otherwise! And I have a few garments to sew for my "summer" vacay, as well as finish up the McCalls 6506 dress. My grandchildren are with me this weekend so I don't know how much actual sewing I'm going to do...
However, I wanted to take this moment to say as a few of my fellow sewing bloggers have previously said, Ladies don't skip your yearly mammogram. I try not to share a lot of personal details on my blog but after a week and a half of hell because a doctor found a "lump" during an exam and a rush mammogram and follow-up testing, I want to encourage you to make sure that you have them done yearly. Part of the reason I felt so bad was because I skipped my exam last year for all of the regular dumb reasons, too busy at work...they never came back showing anything...I could do without that torture...I would know if something was wrong...etc. Luckily, it was nothing but what if it had been and I hadn't caught it earlier because I skipped my mammogram especially since I'm blessed to have health insurance.
So please don't skip yours! And if you don't have health insurance in the U.S., check out Planned Parenthood because they have sources that give free mammograms, and during October, Breast Awareness Month in the U.S., many hospitals and clinics also give free mammograms. Okay public service announcement over...I'm off to play with grandchildren and watch the Olympics...
Updated to add this info from Kaye and L.:
As of 1 Aug, The Affordable Care Act now requires that insurers waive all copays for all preventative screenings and measures.
Thanks Ladies for that information!!!
Speaking of the Olympics... A huge shout out to Gabby Douglas for her amazing gymnastics feat of winning not one but two gold Olympic medals and for going down in the record books...the girl did the dayum thing!
...as always more later!
