Tearing my hair out!

This has been a busy week in the dye pots and following up on future workshop projects.

I have two workshops the first two weeks of April---Ohio and Iowa, then I will be home for three weeks and leaving for two more workshops in May---both in Wisconsin, then home for a month and leaving for North Carolina in mid June---so there are about 75 plus projects in the works  running through my mind.  I spent some time this week organizing each student into a folder---things are looking up after a hard day today.

I also was working on a rug for Judi in Indiana---a job I was remiss in getting to---but all is well as I mailed the first part of it today with what I hope is a great idea---this was a color planning of Susan Quicksall's crazy Horse Quilt tote---I bought pastel permanent color fabric markers and colored in the backgrounds of the pattern and then pinned swatches of the animal  colors on top the pattern.  I have never colored the linen before but after reading up on them I decided it was safe to do---someone may tell me otherwise but I kept it light and in the tome of the actual swatch I was using.  I rubbed it with a wet towel and saw no movement of color on a test piece.

Watching a little basketball---KU is still in and I'm hoping for great things from them.

Tomorrow we are going to a brunch for our MT Nester's group.  I still have to make my egg casserole tonite to bake in the morning.

Knee seems to be getting better---bought a new pair of sandals to help my toes---Merrell's.  I guess I left my favorite pair in the trailer when we left it in storage at the lake when we got home from Texas.

To see some picture of my daughter's show in Berkeley visit this link and watch the clip from Narnia.

I am very proud of her.  She worked very hard.
I love you Chelsea.

Time to relax!  Cheers!
