October 7, 2021 – Note-to-Self Mini Thursday

As I wait for DD’s school bus, it is pouring rain. It’s been a damp, warm fall in Wisconsin. I am wrapping up a Note-to-Self Mini book. The pattern on the fabric is much more cheerful than our current weather situation. Hopefully, I’ll have it listed tomorrow in the giggleFritz shop. Lots to sew, list, and do.

Meatloaf for dinner tonight. Pumpkin pie for dessert! 🙂

Enjoy the rest of your Thursday!

September 27, 2021 – Discovering New Fabric on my Autumn Road Trip to Joann’s

Hello, Everyone! Life continues to be busy. All. The. Time. I wouldn’t have it any other way! I have been hard at work harvesting, canning, and freezing the veggies in our garden. I have also been cleaning out and decluttering our home. It is time to get back to giggleFritz work and fill my shop with lovely things!

I had to run an errand today AND had several Joann Gift Cards burning a hole in my pocket. I decided it was the perfect day to take a road trip to Joann Fabric in Fond du lac, WI. It really IS a road trip. The closest Joann Fabric is 37 minutes away. The one I like to go to is 42 minutes away. Either way, it’s kind of a haul.

I ran my errands and drove north to Fond du lac. The drive north was fantastic! I brought my travel mug filled with coffee, ate my snack, listened to the radio, and enjoyed the farmland scenery. The peace of a nice long drive with no one asking me a million questions or needing anything was much appreciated.

I wandered the store for about an hour. That is all the time I can handle before all of the things become overwhelming to me. I also got hit with an allergy attack and that made it difficult to want to stay too long. But, I found some cute things! I really needed some inspiration, and I found it at Joann’s! Now comes the discipline to create and complete things my customers will love.

New giggleFritz Fabric!! 😀

I have had my fun, now I’m off to work!

Have a wonderful Monday! 😀

August 27, 2021 – Happy Last Friday of August 2021!!

Happy last Friday of August 2021, Everyone!

Sunrise on 1st Day of School

Our DD went back to school this week. She was not too excited to go back. However, when she learned she would be riding the bus this year, life started to look sweeter. Life is looking sweeter for me too. I love my child, but I am hoping I can get a better grip on my time management skills and fill my Shop with some snuggly Sock Monkeys while DD is at school. It will be done.

We are back to packing lunches, sorting through hundreds of papers from school, and listening to stories of the dramas of recess. I am loving it so far, but will enjoy this last, busy week of August 2021. And it will just get busier!

What are you doing this weekend? Are they summery plans? Or, are they more Fall-type plans?

We are headed to a birthday party and a WELS teacher installation this weekend.

We saw this last Tuesday at our local Fleet Farm:

I must confess, this makes my heart SO HAPPY!

Have a fantastic weekend, Everyone!
