In a Blue Mood



…but in a good way! I finally got a batch of indigo mixed up today. I have been meaning to do it for ages. My new motto is “just do it.” I dyed a couple of items of clothing that were stained and looking drab.

I also dyed the cotton scarves that I worked on the other day. Some of my experiments came out quite well. I think some of them will go back in the pot tomorrow for a boost of color.

This morning, I had my final eye doctor check up. I have a prescription for reading glasses. I get two free pairs with the cataract surgeries. I ordered one pair today and will wait to see whether I want another pair of bifocals or just glasses for close up work.

I also went shopping for a few things for the trip to Houston — some comfy shoes and a new purse. I am getting so excited. I keep getting reports from friends who are there for Market and they say our exhibit is “freaking awesome.” Just 3 more sleeps!!

    The inidgo looks faulous. I don’t fret staining my favorite shirts anymore – indigo to the rescue! I even got C to wear a stitch resist tee that I made him this summer and he liked it! Have fun in Houston. I hope you will be able to do a trip report on your return. Yep, living vicariously through you! LOL! Hope your day is sunny.
