So just some normal things.
I dyed wool yesterday. My dye spoons continue to amaze me and I am so happy with my colors.
I am working on a mermaid rug.
I needed sea water, so yesterday I dyed the water background for her. The book I used was Vintage Colors.
Here are the the lovely wool colors that came out of the magic dye pot yesterday.
Then a fantastic rug hooker named Julie Butler from Plumrun Creek did this fantastic rug from Buttermilk Basin. It is a summer wool runner. I liked how Julie's looked as a rug, so I decided I needed to buy a pattern and see if I could get it on backing.

When I was a little girl, my Mom kept pretty much to this schedule. I asked her once, why she always ironed on Tuesdays. " She said, that if I wanted a clean house with every thing done and to have time for other things, it was best to follow this schedule." Those were the days when you had to iron and she had a big glass green coke bottle with this thing with a cork on it and holes that she would sprinkle the clothes with water. I keep hoping to find one in a antique store. I too have kept pretty much to this schedule even now. Just because it works.
Thank you so much for your prayers,
How did it get so late so soon? Its night before its afternoon. December is here before its June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon?
