Except for the occasional beautiful word like flaner.
je flanes, tu, flanes, vous flanez, il/elle flane, nous flanons, ils/elles flanent (there should be all kinds of accents over those es and as, but despite a valiant effort, I can't figure it out)
Anyway, we're going for a stroll.
Nous flanerons. (that would be French future tense)
We are going to stop and visit an artist and crafter named Ruth from Chase Creative Art House.
Ruth recently made me some custom bibs for Sophie. Yes, Sophie needs to wear a bib when she eats; otherwise, food gets everywhere, and we're all about dignity here. When I saw the amazing fabrics that Ruth uses, I asked her whether she could use them for a large bib for Sophie, and she said Yes. Here's one of them:
Ruth also makes amazing napkins out of these fabulous fabrics, so I ordered some of them, too.
They're the perfect size, reasonably priced and so much better than the paper kind.
Ruth is a graduate from San Francisco Art Institute with a degree in painting. She is also an art teacher and has been sewing since she was ten years old.
Stack'd by Sister Made was started by Ruth just over a year ago, and her sister Colleen helps her to sew. She started Sister Made to have what she called "Mommy Money" -- the freedom of getting her hair done without "What! You what for a cut and color!" by Mr. You Know Who.
Ruth says that her napkins are what she's totally in love with and that the idea is to keep a stack on your dining room table and use them as needed. They take up virtually no space in your laundry and do NOT require ironing.
I can vouch for that.
Ruth can also do custom orders and is happy to sew for others. She can help pick fabric and make different sizes and quantities. She makes small and large bibs as well as lunch bags and children's cloths!

Where should we go afterward?
