New product Introduction! Bamboosters (TM)

For all those times you wish you could have just a little more absorbency in your fitted diaper, now you can!

Bambooster (TM) Ovals are 2 layers of rayon from bamboo fleece, serged smooth side out. You can place them between the petals of your Heartland Dreams fitted (or any other fitted for that matter). If you need even more absorbency, fold in half and place directly in the wet zone for 4 layers of super thirsty fleece.

Have you ever wished there was a natural fiber option for pocket stuffers? Well, there are prefolds of course, but bamboo fabrics are so much more absorbent. Now, with these Bambooster (TM) Tri-folds, you can have it all. Two layers of rayon from bamboo fleece give 6 super thirsty layers when tri-folded. Generously sized to fit all sizes of pocket diapers, they can be folded the opposite way to fit smaller sizes. Fold lines are stitched in to assist in folding and to keep the insert from twisting and bunching after washing.

For a nap or night solution, combine a tri-fold with 1 or 2 Ovals for unbeatable protection.

Next stocking planned!

Well, with play rehearsals, school and a busy 2 1/2 yo, I haven't had as much sewing time lately, but I've finally gotten enough product made to have another stocking. I'm planning on stocking my store on Hyena Cart on Tuesday, Sept 29, at 2pm (est). You can find it here, Heartland Dreams.

I've got sized fitteds, all-in-two's, and pockets on tap.

I'll also be stocking at Main Street October 3 at 12:30 pm (est). We've got lots of new vendors with so many amazing products. I hope you'll come by and take a look, and shop, shop, shop!

I'll try to get some preview pics up in the next day or two.

Mountain Man Rendevous

Had a fun day. We took a field trip with the local homeschool group to the Mountain Man Rendevous--basically a reenactment of the meetups in wilder times between trappers and traders. Lots of people dressed in buckskin, tents and teepees, wood fires with coffee pots warming over them, and lots of old time crafts and activities.

There were exhibitions of fire starting with flint and steel, apple butter making (with samples), Indian beadworking, ax throwing (the kids got to take a turn with that one), shooting demonstrations with muzzle loaders, etc.

My boys loved talking knives, guns and bow and arrows with the men, and dd loved the trinkets and such around. The toddler wasn't thrilled, but she was in the mei tai most of the time and pretty happy with that.

We only found out about it last night, but I'm glad we went.

Now I need to do a little sewing, but I'm just so tired. Got to sleep at 1am last night, up at 7, and lots of walking and fresh air. Yaaawwwwn. LOL.

I'm blogging!

So, I've taken the plunge into the blog world--we'll see how this goes. I've always been a horrible failure at journaling-I'd start off with great enthusiasm, and next thing I knew, it had been 6 months since I'd written anything. Hopefully this medium will be easier to keep up with.

I intend this blog to be mostly about my sewing business--primarily cloth diapers. But because of the "M" in that Wahm word (work at home mom), it will invariably include tidbits about my children as well. And, because we live on a farm, you might even get the occasional update about calves being born, the garden harvest, or haying time. As if that weren't enough to keep a mom busy, we also homeschool, so that might provide fodder for entries as well.

I hope you enjoy my little corner of cyber world, and the peek into my life that it provides.
