Evidence and a Little Excitement


Just to show you that I did actually do what I said I was going to....although not from the couch that day. I started to try hand-sewing the patches, which promptly reaffirmed that it's just not my thing. Somehow embroidering yes, hand-sewing....not so much. Now I'm looking at that first pair and wondering about the wisdom of such a light colour on the knees, but seriously, those birds are super-cute, (and I'm not doing them over again), so the birds must stay! In other pants love, I saw a tutorial for easy kids' pants, which I'll try to squeeze inbetween other things coming up.

And speaking of, I've been working all day preparing my little on-line "table" for.....POPPYTALK! (Sorry, didn't mean to get soooo excited....but, actually, I am :-) I'm tickled pink to be hosted by them on their market starting tomorrow (there's a link on my sidebar too), and am looking forward to seeing how things go.

Update: here's my table!

There was other fun stuff going on today in the sun:


Be still my heart - she came in all excited afterwards: "Mama, I was going super-fast!" It aches a little, that going super-fast, that growing up super-fast....

bravo, my friend! so very exciting to see your poppytalk table!

and cheers to the little cyclist. i think of riding without training wheels as one of the biggest of milestones. i can fell your heart aching a bit with this, mama.

It made me cry the first time my eldest rode his bike on his own. Almost like he was leaving. Silly eh!

I just "popped over" to PoppyTalk - your items are beautiful! (My girl would just love one of those capes...hmmm...) And those jeans with pretty patches? So cute.

your poppytalk table looks great. i am curious to hear reports of your experience. i was invited to "table" there a while back but have been so busy with other things i have yet to accept.

i know she gets great traffic but with my stuff being so inexpensive, i would really have to move a lot of good to not lose money on the deal.

i'd love to hear about your experience. over the ether or over tea.

Look at her! Fred's still rocking the training wheels (it's truly the result of her nervous nature) but has some hope to ditch them this year.

By the way, I brought you home the tent.
