Spiders have it made.

As my sister and I were scrambling to get everyone outside before the day faded to night this afternoon she calls out: "Grow another arm already"

I thought.. with baby in one arm and sock less toddler anxious to get outside... How great would it be to be a spider and have so many arms you could get so much done. Now I've mastered almost everything with one hand but putting on children's socks is just not a one handed job.

Needless to say the dog got out too but a midst the chaos the kid's had a great play- in daylight!

Abby Sprouts is officially online!

The past two weeks have been a blur. Although the Christmas sugar high is finally starting to wear off as we are in the beginning hour of January 10th I'm remaining very exciting to start Abby Sprouts.

My sister felted a whole collection of stacking rocks for my little one. I love that they are all a bit different and handmade. Babe actually loves to push them and kick them and pick them up. Even better they are washable but I haven't had the time to try.

The weather was just right today for a January afternoon down town hunting for some eco ribbon. All we found was silk-- Any other ideas?

I receive our first shipment of organic bamboo baby hats, towels, diapers and sleepers this past week. I'm still in awe of how soft bamboo is and I really love the diaper.

My new scookum sewing machine is all set up and ready to go. Now I just need someone who can sew! I taught myself how to knit this fall from mostly trial and error and the great website

Sewing just seems much more difficult and less relaxing to me. I love that knitting is a slow, stitch by stitch, minute by minute. It's easily put out of the kids way and won't hurt if they get into it. But sewing-- yikes!
