Passion Sneak Peek


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.

    Aww… maybe the 2 males can comfort each other! (Just watch Scooter for any signs of depression afterwards–no, really!–and for some reason, a male dog in the extended family put on weight after his procedure, so keep an eye on that!) And cannot wait to see more of your Passion!

    Ouch — kidney stones and a neutering. Both good in the grand scheme of things though.

    You’re right about the heat promoting tolerance between the animals; everyone here is sacked out, too hot to run or to chase.

  4. I hope both Mr. C and Scooter get through their procedures with no problems.

    I saw an immediate connection between your Passion piece and the rug where Scooter and the other doggie are sitting!

    sorry to hear about Mr. C. BIL Bob has had the procedure done two times-both were succesful and no other issues. Hope it’s the same for him.
    Your steps look so lovely.
    Looking forward to seeing the “passion” finish.
