I'm really no further on a real game plan for fall and winter sewing than I was when I started pulling out the "winter woolies". I've been diligently fixing and steaming and pressing, so that every piece that goes into the closet is in real wearing order. Unfortunately the jackets with the shiny elbows did not rejuvenate themselves while hanging out in the garment bags over the summer. Neither did hooks and buttons re-attach themselves to their proper places. I was very sad to have to let the jackets go, and all that maintenance work has seriously eaten into the time for more interesting sewing. "Real sewing" so far has been quite boring, but at least there is some accomplishment.
I finished the rest of the "cherry pies" for my niece.

On Friday we were in Toronto at the Creative Festival. I must have been in the wrong mood, or way too tired, but somehow I didn't find all too much to get terribly excited about. My daughter, on the other hand, was thrilled with such an array of beads as there was.
We did meet a new friend, who was promoting his own wares...
