Isn't the weather beautiful, today the sky was so clear and blue!  The leaves are turning beautiful orange, red, and burgundy!

I've been playing with my Enterprise!  It is an awesome machine.  I just completed my first professional job on her.  I made a personalized golf cart seat.  My DH is into motorcycles and the different groups have golf carts and scooters.  This is a pic of the golf cart seat I made and embroidered.  I had never down seat covers before, it was easier than I anticipated.  My DH took the original seat covers apart and I used them for my pattern.  I used a black faux leather upholstery fabric from JoAnns.  It was very easy to embroider and sew.

I've also been very busy with the American Sewing Guild!  I'm proud to say that I started a new Neighborhood Group in Baltimore City!  We had ten ladies show up for our first meeting from varied backgrounds.  One lady is a professor at a local college who teaches fashion merchandising, one is a former Home Ec teacher, two ladies teach sewing every Saturday at their church to neighborhood children, the others either want to learn to sew or haven't sewn since high school!  We will have our meetings at The Village Learning Place!  They are so generous to let us use the space on Saturdays!

Well I'm on my way to San Angelo, TX to celebrate my god parents 50th wedding anniversary!  What an honor!  So busy working on the seat cover, I didn't have time to make a new dress. 

Until next time, happy sewing everyone!

Thanks everyone, I had a wonderful time in Texas. My DHs friend loved the seat covers. I'm working on his scooter seat cover now!
