(Three day!) weekend plans...

I have a three-day weekend this weekend... YAY!  Do you?  Some people have next Friday off, I guess... I sort of forgot about Columbus Day until now, when I work full time and really appreciate the random holidays... ;)

On the list this weekend, I'm hoping to wrap up a super cute sweatshirt makeover inspired by these Anthro cozy things from like two years ago....

I'm going to a bridal show with a friend--always fun to see the pretty things and sample chocolate fountain fruit kebabs.

Also have to check out a JoAnn sale on Sunday, with my mom.  I have some overlapping coupons to use, and Simplicity patterns are gonna be $0.99.  I need a cute shirt pattern, and some interfacing.  Wahoo.

And we're going to a pumpkin patch with a couple of friends!  Excited to get into the fall feel!  There's a pumpkin patch west of Portland that has a paddle boat and train that you get to/have to ride on to get to the pumpkins.  Silly but fun.

Do you have any lovely sewing or festive fall plans this weekend?

    Oooh, that bridal show sounds fun! And I'd completely enjoy that paddle boat ride to get my pumpkin. I love fun little things like that! I don't have a three day weekend, so I'm jealous. :) My plans for this weekend are to go thrifting, and to sew! Super excited!

  2. Thrifting and sewing, yep, I'll be doing a little of both of those, too!

  3. I miss going to to Joann's. It so much further than it used to be
