This is where I end up doing handwork and watching TV. And yes, I always have a couple of wienie dogs piled up around me. :D And my new rug that I laid around on all afternoon yesterday, looking thru quilt books in front of the fire. :D It was really a wonderful, rainy, chilly day to stay by the fire and play! These are a few more books that I got this past week. I have tons of marigolds that I want to pick and try dyeing some wool with. I'm really excited about the books on "natural" dyes. Can't wait to give it a try. One of my sisters asked if I couldn't just buy dyes to use. Well, YES, but have I ever done anything the easy way??? ROFL And it appeals to the primitive, country girl in me to try my hand at using what nature has put in front of me. I think lots of us are having a windy day. This kind of day reminds me of Halloweens when I was growing up. Blustery, chilly, cloudy. In my memory bank, it seems that most of my Halloweens were like this and I always hated having to wear a coat and cover up my costume. :D Of course, I think it's supposed to be around 70 here on Tuesday. So maybe the little goblins won't have to cover up those cute costumes this year. :) Hope everyone is having a fun Saturday.
