I had a long overdue day on the town with my buddy Janice yesterday. The world cooperated and sprung me sunshine and 60's. I ate off the chain at a food court - yeah there was bourbon chicken and a red velvet brownie
- and then saw "Silver Lining Playbook" which was terrific. Halfway through the flick my stomach started flipping like I was on a carnival ride. I'm sure it was a combination of the rich food and the onscreen
emotional mayhem but I toughed it out, kept the lunch and was restored by a little more fresh air and sunshine. A good time was had by all.
Today, by several special requests I have put my nose back to the grindstone to update the inventory over at Random Acts of Dyeness
. Seems like folks are in the mood for the muted, natural tones that some people work so hard to achieve using a variety of natural dye processes so I've put together a grouping titled "Sand, Ashes and Roses.
I tip my hat to the natural dyers
but my colors all come from Procion MX dyes. This grouping comes from my "overdye
" basket because I'm inclined to harder edged, more saturated colors and were destined for another dose of color.
My loss is your gain! More about it here
