I have a big, crazy maple tree in my yard. The leaves just kind of turn brown (no pretty fall color in all the years I have lived here) but many hang on until the middle of December 😖. I find it easier and quicker to mow rather than use the leaf blower or to rake them. Yesterday it was 39* and by the time I went out the sun had already retreated behind the clouds, so with a heavy winter coat, gloves and scarf, I mowed. For the most part, I enjoy mowing ~ but not at the end of November!

I finally got the simple curtain made for the remodeled half bath/laundry room. Years ago I sewed - some clothes, kids' Halloween costumes, simple curtains. You'd think I never sewed with how I procrastinated making this curtain. I had a hard time finding fabric to my liking. This is okay, not really what I had in mind, but it will do. It's a little busier than I envisioned.
One HUGE lesson I learned is that cotton does not tear like wool does. I bought a yard of fabric and needed slightly less. I thought I would just tear off the excess which I did. Then when making the rod pocket casing one side of the curtain was longer than the other. It took me a while to realize this is how it tore.
