Another Monday, Another Week

Thanks for all the travel bag love! I really appreciate you all stopping by and taking the time to leave such nice comments.

Cinderella program

We had a nice weekend visiting my parents in Milwaukee, from a successful shopping spree for a few mix and match outfits for my mom to seeing the Cinderella ballet. I wanted to take a picture of the ballerinas’ costumes, but photography wasn’t allowed in the theater. Trust me, they lit up the  stage, making it beautiful.

We have to pick up candy for the trick-or-treaters, and carve our pumpkins. I might even wear a costume this year! I am hoping to have time to work on a fall table runner and another wonky star block, in red this time to go along with the green one I made recently. Hope you all have a happy week!

  • Ah Cinderella! I love the Cinderella ballet.
    The leaves will give way to dreariness here soon too.

  • Pretty new blog header!! I, too, loved your bags in your last post. I read the post on my phone, and I forgot to come back and comment. Your Fall pics are so pretty!

  • How fun! I would love to go see the Cinderella ballet. I need to see if they have anything like that around my town. I like the new blog header. Reminds me that I need to do some changing to mine soon.
    Have a good week in your meetings. 🙂

  • Oh terri, i adore the Cinderella ballet! 🙂 Glad you had such a wonderful weekend. I am also already looking forward to weekend. Have fun preparing for Halloween! Wishing you a lovely week and love to you!

  • What a gorgeous mix of colors in the leaves on your tree and lawn. We have two trees in the front yard that seem to turn yellow overnight and lose their leaves like crazy all at once. But — they are all a definite yellow. You have a nice mix of colors 🙂

  • The ballet sounds like a great treat! We have one tree that is brilliant red (a dogwood I think). The rest are still green or all dreary yellow.
    Have fun with your new projects:)

  • The fall leaves are beautiful! I always feel the same way about Mondays!

    It sounds like you had a wonderful time with your mom! The only ballet I’ve been to is the Nutcracker, I’m sure that Cinderella was beautiful!

    Take care, and happy sewing!
