First day of School

Last Tuesday was Willow's first day of first grade. She did great!

I, on the other hand did not do great. It was so hard! I'm a dyed in the wool home-schooler! I feel like I'm sending my baby to the wolves!

In reality it's fine. The kids are nice and she's making friends, the teacher is great and I've seen such an improvement in her attitude and behavior in just a week that it's amazing. So yay school! I guess...

The most beautiful mess

An old friend's mother surprised me this week by bringing over 3 garbage bags full of fabric and sewing stuff! I'm in heaven! Some of the fabrics are just gorgeous!

I spent a whole day sitting on the floor sorting and petting fabric.

On Saturday I had a booth at our local farmer's market and it was awesome! My best market yet! It's funny though, if I hadn't sold so much all the problems would have made it miserable!
First I couldn't find a piece of my canopy, so I didn't set it up. But that turned out to be good because the wind was awful! I'm sure it would have blown the canopy across the park and into the creek! As it was all my signs and dolls were blowing all over the place. Even the table was trying to jump away.
Then it rained. Okay, only 4 drops, but enough to make me panick and start putting stuff away, which I then had to get back out again when it stopped.
Then a sweet little autistic boy came over and broke my umbrella, danced with my mannequin and re-arranged my entire booth. He said it looked much better now, just like wal-mart.
But all in all it was great. Good sales, good contacts, lots of fun.

Look! I'm in a treasury! That's so cool.

I'm not ready for Fall to be here yet though! The evenings are getting cooler, all my tomatoes are ripe, Willow is going to be going to school next week...sigh...I know there's no getting around it, but I'm still not ready for it...
