Passion Sneak Peek

Monday, July 27th, 2009


I finished my piece for the next 12 x 12 theme — Passion. Here is a sneak peek. I showed it to my daughter, Steph; after I told her the title, she totally got it. This made me feel a little more confident. It will be posted on the blog on August 1.


I have these shibori pieces on my design wall. I have an idea percolating about how to add more dye or some paint to these. They were created by using wooden blocks as a clamped resist.

I was really upset today when I found that my HP scanner does not work with the Leopard OS on my Mac so I ordered a new Canon today – only $79 and free shipping.

We got fairly good news today that Mr C’s problem is kidney stones and not a more dire prospect based on his symptoms. He still has a wait to get in to see the Urologist and have them disintegrated – at least we hope that is what they can do.

Look at this — a rare moment of peace in our household, today. I think it was too hot to do anything else but be tolerant. Scooter is going to lose his manhood on Wednesday; but we have no desire for him to sire more puppies.


It is so darned hot that they are canceling the local Farmer’s market on Wednesday. fortunately, I have my own farm that yields something new every day.
