I just made an online purchase with Alewives Fabric (recommended by and on SouleMama). They have such beautiful choices!!!!! Apparently they also have other resources like yarn, classes and books. I haven't started my Christmas Sewing Lessons with Physh yet, but even though June is crazy I'll get there! I might even start reading the sites she sent me earlier just so I can get going. :) Here are the patterns I selected: Persia Teal

Things are mostly ready for Z's birthday party which is tomorrow morning. We still need to set out food, find our nice tablecloth etc. The kids will repot begonias in little clay pots and decorate tote bags with fabric paint and markers for garden produce. The theme will be the garden so hopefully those things will work out for our sweet little people. Frontier Dreams: When I have said my evening prayer, And my clothes are folded on the chair, And mother switches off the light, I'll still be ___ years old tonight. But from the very break of day, Before the children rise and play, Before the darkness turns to gold, Tomorrow, I'll be ___ years old. ___ kisses when I wake, ___ candles on my cake.

Some of Zoë's party favors are strawberry preserves that I made. Zoë made small Spring lanterns for the overflow.

I never thought we'd have the chance to join a local CSA. Enter Taylor Creek Farm. We live in a small town that seemed incapable of making space for my dreams of community, natural health and earth-conscious living. I was so wrong. I keep meeting people in my generation who are doing something about their beliefs and not just in their own gardens/homes. They're getting busy. It's wonderful to be part of that and to get to know others with similar values. Here's what we bought today just from their leftovers: Indian Creek Angus (out of Carnesville).
