Landscaping and decorating also happened this month, and I was far more successful with those projects. I bought a Sullivan sewing table and had a great time assembling it. My serger now has a home- the table has 4 drawers, and can be folded up for a smaller surface. It is very sturdy. I'm enjoying having my drafting table, sewing machine table (another purchase) and serger all close to one another. I am still looking for the correct chairs, and a good rug protector so I can roll around.
Below is a photo just for Coco, of the blog cocosloft. She advised me that cinnamon would drive away ants, and she was right. They don't like nutmeg either.
Speaking of cinnamon, here is a fall skirt I made this month. The knit is a sweater knit with wonderful horseshoe graphics and splotches of cinnamon color throughout.
Though Nick does not wear shoes, he has had to transition from a softer environment to the hard, rocky ground of Tucson. He has done pretty well, having redness for a few days, and some small ouchiness last week. I rode him today and he was fine. His feet are hard as iron right now, and the hoof looks strong. I bought some Easyboots (Trail version) and tried them last week. These are slip on boots which look a bit like sneakers with velcro. People use them on rocky terrain and for long distances. He loved them. No kidding, he was like a kid with new school shoes.
We had a visitor on the front porch, and he/she has since moved into the drainpipe.
I'll talk with you soon, as I am now going to organize fabrics and patterns for the fabric stash contest on PR. The more stash I sew, the more I can buy :-)
