monday morning washout

It was a blue Sunday...due in part to a mason jar disaster with a half quart of turquoise (see below). No pictures of my blue ankles, for once I had on shoes. I was just stirring the dye with a spoon when a hole popped out of the glass! Do jars get old?

This piece of woven, gridded cotton picnic cloth is getting discharged right now. Those dots are about 3/8 of an inch and I think I have that out of my system for the day!

    do you need me to come help you bleach and stain your deck ;).

    actually it'd be really cool if you did this effect over your whole deck with a range of colors....wonder how it works as a water repellant.

  2. The deck was constructed of pressure treated wood in 98 and you can see how diligent we have been about sealing it..(ahem) But, for whatever reason all the spillage and color that I have been splashing around disappeared in a rain or two. The wood just wont keep the color!

    what a shame.

  4. My dad was a glazier, a glass man, when he had his own business. He said all glass has a weak spot. If anything touches it, even lightly, it can shatter. You found the weak spot, it seems.


Tell me everything!

Silk and cotton saved

Now we're having fun. Thanks, Liz , for reminding me that we are not knitting. It doesn't matter if the pieces are two to four...

Play it again Sam.
