September seems to be Roma Tomatoes Month

Mlyons broke a tooth so she stayed home from school yesterday. We went in to see the dentist ( we see Dr. Rana Graham - Montaque at Williamsburg Pediatric Dentists who is awesome ) and it was decided that the best thing was to extract the tooth. (its a baby tooth, it is now cracked in 1/2, she'd loose it in the next 6 - 12 months anyway)

Afterwards we picked up her violin (she will be studying violin as part of her 5th grade studies) and went home for a day of quiet reading.

And a photo shoot in the garden.

I've been sewing (see Whigs & Tories) and experimenting with various patterns. Tried this peasant top - a combination of Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom and Sew Country Chick  (I have the pillow case version cut and ready to sew. And I particularly like Justine's blog as we are like minded in many ways: Inside the Fabric We Sew With http://www.sewcountrychick.com/inside-the-fabric-we-sew-with-being-more-mindful/ )

Mlyons liked the yellow dot fabric from Riley Blake and I had wanted to try to give it a split neck. We agreed on where the elastic should go on the sleeves and I added white ricrac. Mlyons is appreciative of my current ricrac obsession. I need to try the split neck again - I think Crafty Mom has a blog post regarding that - but I do like how the blouse looks with her slacks and boots! And she does too!

in other news, Dragon has a concussion from his soccer game on Sunday. Went in for a header on the corner kick and collided with another player, landed hard and slapped his head. Don't think it is a "big" one, he is clear headed. He has a headache and is restricted from activity until the headache is gone and he's been seen by his primary care practitioner. Never boring around here.

Romas did the job for many year for us too. With lots of spaghetti sauce to follow...:)

I hope everyone is soon recovered.
