Together-ness

We had a nice weekend around here. The plan was to keep pretty low-key, since I had been sick...but you know what they say about the best laid plans.
It looks like I am going to have the opportunity to sell my wares at a party here in town on Oct. 8. With that day quickly approaching, I took the opportunity of a rainy Sat. afternoon to drive into Evansville to stock up on some new fabric. By myself....2 hours in the car....with a fabric shopping spree.....it was like the best day. Ever.
I came home and made up my Grandmother's recipe for chicken n' dumplings, from scratch. A great meal for the first few days of fall. This time Griffin was excited to help and really stuck with it, even helping me make a salad and set the table!
On Sunday, after a lazy morning, Griff and I went to see "Cloudy with a side of meatballs." It was super cute, and we both really liked it. Unfortunately, I was a bad Mama and did not monitor his M&M intake and I think he ate like 40 too many. We got home from the movie and took a long walk as a family with Griffin complaining of a stomachache. When we got in the house he almost immediately fell asleep on the couch - that is when we KNEW something was wrong. After a rough evening of fever, vomiting, sweating and moaning he finally started to feel better about 9 pm. He slept thru the night and woke up happy and healthy this morning. I still kept him home from school just to make sure it was just a sugar induced illness. Wow, Mama Gast still has a lot to learn over here!

In Lucy news, she has got her first real goose egg on her forward (now in rainbow hues of green, yellow and purple - see photo above.) She is learning to run, but all too often the result is launching her body...this time into a iron end table leg. OUCH! I will be happy when that is all healed up.
So, that is the goal this week - healing! Also, I have ALOT to sew. Wish me luck!

What a rough few days for you and the kids. I'm glad Griffin is feeling better. Poor Lucy. She is young and will heal.

I am going to be selling bibs, burbclothes (boy, girl, gender neutral AND holiday), small drawstring bags (to use as a small purse, reusable gift bag, lunch sack..etc.), wallets, and my newest creation - little halloween candy bags for toddlers. And..if I have time, some felt flower hair clips.
S & L - Griffin named the fish on his own...I like it too!
