I will bring Andy with me tonight, but just be warned, it is a coffee shop and people do smoke there. I don't mind it as Andy is a little older and no one smokes right on him, but when he was smaller, no way. I get the impression your little dear is little, so if you can leave her with hubby, you might want to.  I know I would if I had the option. It' s so good for us mommas to get some momma time! I
'm going to Wmbg/Va Beach (both) this weekend with my mom, which is always nice, as I can go off on my own for a little bit and do my own thing. We are actually going to go to the Quilt show at the Hampton Coliseum, and I am going to try to find some awesome fat quarters for my goodies this season! These are what I make and sell at the market, but only when I'm out of school. www.geocities.com/ithnkuno/bibsandburpees
I probally won't sell my goodies at the St Patty's fest, can't predict the weather with the little one and all, but if I do anything it will be with my momma's Bake Shoppe, selling her goodies.
Look forward to seeing you tonight! We'll get there earlier, and pop in and out dependant on the tot of course.

St Patty's Day fest? I haven't heard of this... is there a website with vendor information? Or any information at all?

I am clearly disconnected from the rest of richmond.

Leila,
Hey........we should get together and sew some stuff sometime.  I made Anika's diaper bag, and it really was super easy.  If I were making another one I'd make it smaller than Anika's.  If the bag is huge, like ours is, you just end up putting tons of stuff in it and it gets too heavy. I can write out some instructions for you if you want. 
I've also made some clothes for Ani.  Little girl dresses are SO easy.  And you can make them kind of long and put a big hem in the bottom, then let them out when they grow.  I also made a few little stuffed toys that are way cute.  The best thing about making clothes is that they always turn out way cooler that whatever you can buy in the store. 
And now that I know how to crochet there's really no stopping.  I made Ani a poncho that I just finished last night.  Adorable. 


Everyone,
i totally didn't get down to 17.5 on Friday.  I ended up spending several hours with a friend of mine who had just broken up with her boyfriend.  It was kind of messy.  Hopefully I'll be there this Friday though. 

Must....... crochet........ more........Must........crochet.......

Beth,
You are so funny. Hey, just a thought, and I was thinking of this when we met actually and you were talking about your play groups. What about some crafty moms getting together with the kids for a crafty moms play date sometime? We could knit, crochet, sew, share, what ever. Maybe an evening or weekend once a month. Let me know what you think. My place is tiny, and I'd hate to volunteer someone's place, but maybe there is somewhere communial we could gather...

Beth(the other one)

Oh and I did go Friday, but Andy was a little wild. And a new girl showed up, can you believe her name was Beth too!

Depending on how many people wanted to come, we might be able to do it at my house.  We don't have a very big living room, but if it was only a couple people with kids, it wouldn't be so bad.  I guess the only thing that might make it hard is that since Eliza isn't mobile yet, we don't have any baby gates or anything.  Oh and we have dogs, if that's a problem for anyone.  They don't mind kids, but just in case someone's allergic or scared or something.

But yeah, I'd totally be down with a crafty mom playdate!  Sounds like a blast, plus I'd really like to meet a few more moms that I can relate with!

How about Daisy Days at St. Catherine's (April 22 & 23)?  I don't have any info about it other than this:

http://www.st.catherines.org/daisydays/index.php

Maybe I'll have enough bags together by then to start participating!  When you go to a market, about how many items do you take with you to sell?
