More things.

Yeah I know, more things on my ironing board. I'm sick of it too. This was the scene last week when I whipped out another bag for fall market. It is a fun bag, and like most the things that I make, very easy. It's going to have grommets. Let's just hope grommets are still 'in'. Talk about the last one to the grommet party.
It's warming up this week. I'm pretty sure I jinxed it when I mentioned to Elizabeth I felt like a baked mini-jack pumpkin, it's felt more fall than end of summer. Turns out it's back to summer this week. Sorry everyone who wants some delicious fall weather. My fault.
So people, hope the weekend was a good one. Anything exciting to report?

Lots to report on my end. A birthday, a big-boy bed for my baby, some decorating, some cake-making. So much fun! Photos coming soon over on my blog. As always, your blog is a nice morning treat for me. I love to start my day here.

Uh Grommets? I have some. And the tool. And they are both in unopened you got me beat!
If you caused a delay in Fall I will pout. Our high temp today will be 107 and that is NOT the heat index!
I love how your ironing board looks :)

Well, Jaguars lost - again - by 1 point. Good news, I started working on a block of the month again. Bad news, it's from last year. Oh, and we've tied our record from 1992 for the most consecutive days over 90. Ugh! Can't wait for Fall.

I love those fabrics on your ironing board cover. I am actually quite fond of the fabric that IS your ironing board cover.

It's 110-ish around here. Bring on the pumpkins.

I never get tired of seeing fabric on someone else's ironing board. Hardware is always in....go gromments.

Well, I don't know about grommets, but I do know about the weather. I'm a San Francisco native, and every September when school started the weather was at it's most glorious. Boo!

We knew summer wasn't really during summer. July 4th fireworks were always viewed through the prism of fog. I'm 60 now, and I actually kinda like 'em that way.

My big excitement was going to the Niners game and cheering them on to victory over Minnesota. All my sewing and craft supplies have been in storage since January while we have our house remodeled. One more reason I love your blog. Can you say "living vicariously"? :)

I ♥ grommets.

When the NAMES Quilt lived in SF, I escorted it to Washington, DC several times, and also worked as a grommet slave.

Grommet slaves got the completed panels and pounded industrial-strength grommets into the canvas that framed the panels. In this way, panels could be joined by plastic zip ties, so that if a town requested a viewing of panels of say, citizens of their county, or veterans, appropriate panels could be sent.
