Yesterday: the first day of the advent of the official time we like to call The Bers, Mistress Bean accompanied me to the mall where we met a dear friend for lunch. The lunch itself was a little less than fantastical - mostly related to Mistress Bean's intense desire to steer any (read: ALL) conversation to her subjects du jour (namely: Bean herself). That, and she threw everything underneath the table and I had to make multiple trips beneath said table to retrieve lost items.
Prior to the painful lunch we spent some time out in the sunshine where we:
investigated leaves and twigs
watched people walk by
enjoyed the sun on our cheeks
made cheesey faces
modeled some clothes that I just finished making---
the first things I've been able to do on the sewing machine since the whole neck debacle.*
A fine way to celebrate the beginning of fall and the lushness of the beautiful Bers.
I have some fun things planned for The Creamery during this season of the Bers. Tell me: what are you most looking forward to this fall?
(*And in case you aren't my friend anymore because I apparently lack the motivation to get my Etsy shop up and running, there's your reason for the delay: My neck, the pain thereof. I've had to stay off the sewing machine altogether since May and am only now just easing back into sewing. We'll see how things go, but so far it's looking good. You'll be my friend again, right?)
