Well my fancy dishwasher is down for repair once again. I have to wait until Monday to call Meile, & of course I have company coming for dinner tonight. Mindy & John & the 2 girls. & sunspots are apparently effecting the Dish TV. Maybe that's the problem with the dishwasher too! The good thing about the sunspots were the northern lights last night while we were out in the hot tub. Sorry I didn't have my camera with me.
We got a couple of nice surprises in the mail this week. This fun little bunch of stuff came from my pal Kathy Jolman, in Michigan. A cute little vintage looking Halloween card with some vintage sequins & sparkly gem & shi-sha things, & a neat little leather beaded thimble pouch made by her hubby John, with some sacred cedar, sweet grass, tobacco, & Sage. Also some sage seeds.Most came from a Pow-wow they went to.
Another little surprise we got in the mail was from my sister Em. It's quite a message.
I liked it so much I decided to try doing a rubbing off of it. Maybe I'll use it for the beginning of an auction quilt for my guild.
Here's one of the pieces of fabric I tryed to stop the flow of umber with. I added some orange & yellow to it. & last is my carpet after OXI CLEAN! It only has the faintest pinky tinge left on it. I'll never look at those obnoxious commercials the same way again. I'm sold!
