I don't know about you guys, but I'm feeling it. I'm ready for summer to be kaput & fall to come in like a warm pumpkin pie!

I know I should be enjoying the last little bit of warmth but I'm kinda over it. I want maple leaves and crisp mornings. I've already been indulging in iced chai and the occasional oatmeal cookie.

  • I've started a notebook. Each night I write the things I'm thankful for. I'm pretty sick of negativity, here's to positivity! So far I just am all about the little things, like gray nail polish, grapefruit jelly belly beans, movie dates with Porkchop and adding squished pennies to my collection.
  • The Porkchop leaves for school on Sunday. I won't be going back to Eureka with him...so we will be long distance Porkchopians. I'm not looking forward to it. But I know it will be for the best, he can focus on school and graduate in December, I can focus on some deadlines I have coming up and sew. Plus we'll have a lot of weekends together!
  • Something about fall/cooler temps brings out the urge to hand sew, embroider, knit, crochet, etc. I'm knitting a cowl...I'm pretty much the worst knitter...I forget where I'm at in a pattern and rarely finish projects I start. This fall I have three goals: a cowl, a pair of socks and a hat. I'm hoping I can actually do it!
  • I'm kinda obsessed with Liz's upstairs patio thing-y that she has. Why am I so into Roswell? It's like candy. I know I shouldn't eat it...yet I can't stop. I'm can't stop watching it!!!!! The blind date episode especially killed me.

I'm taking an internet break for the next few weeks. I'm determined to get caught up on swaps, orders, bee blocks...everything. I've already made a huge dent in them which is exciting...I only have 4 more big things to do then its on to the littles...woo! I should note that most of this stuff is with friends...that I owe stuff from MONTHS ago too. Yeah. I'm a jerk..and have very understanding pals.

I did get a few days to open my new shop! msmcporkchopquits!

I'll be slowly adding things through out the week and then phasing out my etsy shop. If you see anything you like but would prefer a different color, just send me a message, I love custom orders but I do have a turn around of about a week & a half :) although by the end of August I'll only have a 2-3 day turn around on things :)

Have a great Wednesday pals!
