I used my sewing machine.. on fabric!

This weekend I actually used my sewing machine... on fabric! It is mostly used for cards or scrapbook pages, and has only touched fabric a couple of times since I have owned it. With the cruise coming up in 10 days (yeah!!!) I had to get working on the fish extender.

A fish extender is a hanging pocket thingy used to contain little gifts that other cruisers in our cruise group (DIS Boards) will be leaving for us throughout the cruise. I could have bought one, but wanted the girls to be involved so I let them pick out the fabric. I still need to cut the dowel down and add ribbon and some trim, but the sewing is all done!

I love fall. The cool, crisp air, the colors, the smells, Pumpkin Spice Lattes. I am more than ready to decorate the house for fall. Eric disagrees of course, and would rather I wait until October. I never do though! I figure of it is cool enough out to leave the windows open, and be cold in the morning, then it is time to decorate! So, I know what I will be doing this weekend! Though, with the cruise less than 2 weeks away, I will also be cleaning.. doing laundry... probably starting to pack.
