Oh man, guys. This summer has gone by fast. It's already only a month until I start school again, and I feel like I've spent the last two months either traveling or preparing for visitors or hosting said visitors. In fact, yesterday was the first day in two weeks that I actually had any desire to do any sort of housework.

Oh! And I also took a couple of sewing classes, so I can now create something for you that incorporates gathered fabric. I know, I know. You're all very impressed. I can tell.
