Today I'm yet another year older...yup. I woke up again this morning and happy to be alive. A couple days ago I treated myself to something I didn't need but wanted. At November rug camp, my tablemate Loris (in the photo) had a wonderful tablet cover which I fell in love with. See that gorgeous hand-tooled leather looking iPad cover!! Well I wanted one also.
So went on-line shopping and found something a tad different ~ I contemplated buying the same as Loris had but decided on this one. It arrived yesterday just in time for my birthday to enjoy the new iPad2 cover. You can see it also holds my iPad pencil.
After reading a blog post by Janice (Prims by the Water) about long johns I decided to gather mine from the attic. For hangers I've used a limb from the yard and a piece of jute for the hanger. This one in the kitchen has a scarf around the neck.
And another hanging at the entrance to my computer room has a little vintage garland trim around the neck.
Since today is dreary and rainy (AGAIN !#&*?!) I pulled out the dye pots, gathered some ugly wool and doing some primitive black. A flash always finds the hidden bright colors so these may go back into another pot of primitive black dye, but will see how it looks with the naked eye when I get ready to use it. Also, my brother called to wish me happy birthday so the pots didn't get stirred like they should and dye is not distributed equally.
I have selected my next project and have it on linen. Didn't want to be caught without something on my frame like before and just grab something to satisfy my fix. But you'll have to wait to see what was chosen and keep you guessing 😁
Water water every where. I told my son and brother that I want a boat for Christmas. Look at this yard and back woods.
