... and I haven't been up to much but working. I've been tech editing, teaching, and studying, which hasn't left much time for crafting. I have a half-finished skirt waiting for a hem and buttonholes, and a 1/3 of a sweater waiting for arms and the rest of its body.
I have had time to do some fun things, though. Things like updating my kitchen with awesome new measuring cups:
The predecessor to these gorgeous things was a mismatched plastic set from Goodwill - a product of our college days. We've spent the last year using a cracked 1cup and a creepily stained 1/4cup. 1/3cup got lost along the way. Every time we encountered newer, nicer measuring cups we'd consider buying them, and then just decide we could make do with what we had. Well, no more of that! I love these. They're from Anthropologie, if any of you want to hunt down some of your own.
I've also found time to pose around in masks for my 365 project:
And, finally, there's been a lot of duck feeding going on:
One thing I love about Fall in Chicago is the great goose and duck migration. In Flagstaff we had a hummingbird migration, which was also awesome. There's something cozy and comforting about the ducks, though, and they're so interactive. They love people. It's because we feed them, I'm sure.
I hope this finds you all well. What have you been doing to celebrate the season? <3
