Favorite Things This Week

Fall is here!  Fall is here!  Seriously, I’m so giddy about fall.  September has been an amazing month.  Time with family and friends, but mostly full of laughter.  More memories to come as we enjoy the fall weather and festivities.

Girl’s Weekend

A couple of weekends ago my friends and I snuck off to Madison, Indiana for the weekend.  We stopped at wineries and shopped.  More importantly we had time together.  At a bar on Friday night we met two adorable Kentucky girls complete with accents.  They noted they were 22 and thought we were 27.  Can they just follow us around for a while?  Too sweet, just like their tea.  They are towards the back of this picture.

We roamed around a new city and learned a few things along the way.  Canaan, Indiana hosted their Fall Festival while we where there.  They host a special Pony Express run of the mail.  You guys, I love the mail so when I overheard someone talking about a special postcard, I knew I needed more information.  At the post office we got all the details.  The Pony Express will be in Madison by 1ish if we wanted to see the ride.  Done!

We anxiously waited to see a man on a horse deliver these postcards.  It was much later than we were told, but I had beer, so things were good.  I shared the thrilling event on InstaStories.  People in town were not nearly excited as I was.  “It’s just a guy on a horse.”  Well those party poopers did not deter me.  So glad we got to see it.

Then we noticed the building we had been waiting by.  It looks like a castle.  It’s an old Knights of Pythia lodge.  Interesting. Now it’s just apartments.  Imagine all the social events that happened there?

This was the view from our hotel room.  We stayed in the second night and enjoyed some of the wine we had purchased.  We laughed more, ate cookies, and wore sheet masks to make our skin look glorious.  I won’t share those pictures, but they still make me giggle.

Having a getaway was refreshing.  P had a boy’s weekend and loved the time with Rob.  If you haven’t one in a while, make the time with your friends.

Sewing & Quilting

Blogger’s Quilt Festival is currently happening.  Pop over and see the amazing work in this collection.

Since people know I sew, they ask if I can hem their pants.  My typical answer is, “Yes, but terribly.”  Pay someone else to do it.  I bookmarked this article for future reference if I want to tackle hemming my own pants.  Oh, I hope I can stop laughing at that thought.

Speaking of sewing clothes, Rachel talks about her garment sewing baggage here.  She is braver than I am.  Sewing clothes for myself is a to do, but it’s scary.  What if I fail?  With quilting failures can usually be ripped out or covered up in some way.

 

That’s it for now.  I have a few things I’m working on for next week to share.  New posts and possibly a video.
