Fall Doings

School is starting tomorrow, so all the older people in my house will be gone.  I will find out if my two little people will happily play and let mom work in peace.  I am hoping that I will get to be creative at least during nap time everyday.

In the next couple of weeks I am planning on sewing dresses for the Michigan Renaissance Festival.  My family makes this a fall outing every year.  It is more fun if you are dressed up.  We don't do authentic outfits, but we are inspired by the times in our costuming.  
 My daughter and some friends last year at the Ren Fest. 

My daughter and I cut up a stack of old unwearable jeans last night.  We want to make journal covers, cuffs, and purses out of the denim.  When I get any of these projects completed I will post pictures.  Now I am off for the last minute school shopping that needs to be completed.
