From Summer to Fall

Wow. Labor Day is upon us. For our family it means a start of a new school year - my baby girl is starting Kindergarten (how did that happen!?!) on Tuesday. It also signals that fall is on the way, football season (yay) and also time to get ready for the pre-holiday show rush.

We went from 90-some degrees earlier in the week to a crisp 65 today. What a change. I love summer time and the warm weather, but I simply LOVE the fall. During the summer I have a hard time getting motivated to cook - who wants to turn on an oven when you already feel like you are baking in the air? Leaves us in a bit of a crunch as I hate to eat anything that comes from a box, and detest fast food! (Okay, so pizza doesn't count as fast food, just for the record.) The cool weather has ushered in a cooking frenzy in our house. Friday night we had lasagna for dinner. Last night we had chicken and dumplings for dinner, followed by hot, fresh apple crisp for dessert. Yum! I find myself getting excited whenever I drive past the apple orchards on the way home - I can see the ripening fruit covering the trees, just waiting to be picked! Can't wait.

The Mom N Mia Quilts sewing studio has been going full steam - really, I haven't had much of a break this year at all, other than a few stolen weekends for family trips. No complaints.
This past week, I made over 100 reversible car seat strap cover sets - about 2/3 of those are for wholesale orders, but there was a rush on them in my Etsy shop as well.

Lots of wholesale orders to fill - proud to say that I am now supplying over 15 lovely boutiques across the U.S., as well as shops in Australia, Malaysia, Ireland, Switzerland, Canada and Brazil.
