Now's the time of year when everyone begins replenishing their wardrobes. I absolutely love all of the lush and cozy fabrics that start turning up in the fabric stores for autumn. Their rich shades and fabulous textures always inspire me to start a fresh project.

Whether you're heading back to school, sewing for someone who is, or just starting a new project, share what new projects you're working on to get ready for fall.

Also, have made all of the tops in Linda Lee's Mix It Up pattern. Great pattern for fall shirts made of shirting and linen for the Fl weather.

Love Threads newsletter too!

lalarose writes: I'm stumped as to what to sew for fall. I now have my Lenexa, Kansas townhome on the market in hopes of moving to Florida to be closer to my son and his family (2 grandkids and one on the way)I'm thinking about continuing on with the summer sewing as it stays fairly warm in Palm Beach Florida most of the year. Any suggestions?

BusyHands writes: My five year old son is going to Grade One ( or First Grade for you Americans) so I'm sewing him some pants with extra reinforced knee patches. This spring he put his knee through FIVE pairs of pants in one week!
As long as the pants are are roughly the same colour, I won't have to change the serger threads :-)
