Field Trip: Nature Center

We checked out the local nature center on Saturday.  Red's been wanting to visit it for a while now.  It was perfect weather!





What a Great Big Sister!

I was in the other room for a while working on the mei tai. Karrots kept coming in to check on me and things seemed quite quiet out front. Eventually she came in and said "baby asleep!" Sure enough, I went out front and there he was:

I Love My Neighbors!

Seriously...what would I do without them?  The many rescues and help they've offered...So, I handed out goody bags to let them know how much I appreciate them.  Then today one of our neighbors comes by with a gift bag full of ginger snaps and this:

With my jacked up wrists I had gone over there once and asked if the man of the house was in to help me open up a jar of spaghetti sauce.  He wasn't, but his wife, who is supposedly seriously sick, is able to open the jar no problem.  (Now you see why I doubt her illness?)  Thus I received a jar opener with a note: This is for you **  Hahaha!

Thanks guys!  You made my day!!  Now I can stop bothering you with my trifling jars!

Mei Tai

A little update on my latest project...

Did you notice??  That's right - the straps are way too short!  I don't know if I just didn't understand the directions or if they weren't written well, but I made the straps like 24" and they should've been at least double that.  I figured that out after I looked up youtube videos on how to wear a mei tai.  Ah well!  You live/sew you learn!

Now to extend them...
