Another One Bites the Dust

Sigh......I am sad to say I have burnt out another happened while I was cutting fabric this morning.....I only had 2 more pieces to cut (and my work clothes). All of a sudden it wasn't steaming, wasn't hot & water was pouring out of the bottom steam holes. I did manage to finish cutting my fabric (luckily it wasn't wrinkly fabric) and I had to dig in my closet for unwrinkled clothes. I think this is my third iron in the last few years.......sigh.....I do love the thought of a new iron though, as I really didn't like the last one - it had an auto shut off so it turned itself off every 1/2 hour - no matter what.....kind of inconvenient when you sew......

Face Books #1 Idiot = ME!

I am starting to think I am the only person out there who completely does not understand Face Book. I just don't get it. While it is kinda neat tracking down an old friend you may have lost touch with I pretty much am baffled after that point. I don't get the updates & the "likes" and all the cause-invites and suggestions. Like I went on today & found an MIA friend & I think I sent her a friend-request....but I'm not 100% sure.....and then I have a profile pic now too - but one I never put online.....too much for me to figure out. But sometimes I feel like I am missing out on something there....not sure what....but something....

Am I getting old? I didn't think so, but maybe.....just maybe.....

Well, I have had 4 shows over the last week.....that was A LOT. I think I have found my "too much" point........but, it's over & I made it!

The Saturday Market was wonderful as usual - I am so grateful to have that venue for my goodies!

On Sunday we were at the beautiful East Side Country Club in Madison - right on Lake Monona. It was lovely - I was right on the water. It was a bit breezy though - but that breeze kept the bugs away & kept it cool outside. I picked up some great cards & messenger bags while I was there too.

I am going to try 2 new projects this fun new fall/winter ideas. And I have lots of new recipes to post, but by the end of the day have been too pooped out to want to type them!

Itsy Bitsy Yoga

I was thinking it would be fun to teach the girls yoga so we could have a nice relaxing wind-down to the end of the day. I went online and found this book "Itsy Bitsy Yoga for Toddles & Preschoolers".

It came in the mail yesterday so after the girls bath I asked them if they wanted to try it. They was GREAT! They were so excited & had so much doing the poses that we finished the nighttime routine & they were asking for more so we went thru and did most of the poses in the book. They were having so much fun and so was I. If you are thinking about trying yoga out with your little ones I would definitely recommend this book to you.
