We are finally getting our hay shelter up. We get our hay from Dave Brazil in Susanville. He's going to deliver hay to Mim next week and bring us more to fill 'er up. We're smart enough to know that we can't lift up the shed top, so will snag some of our younger family members at The Gathering. Mickey Mouth yelled at us the whole time we were putting it up. I swear he's a dogsheep.
These are the fabrics I selected for the third set of placemats. I was a little concerned that the pastel salmon isn't trendy, but I decided to go ahead.
This is how the colors showed up after I sewed the strips together and wound them into pinwheels. My mother used to say - in for a penny, in for a pound. I'm in for the pound and have started the third set of placemats on this warp.
I'm afraid this was a gamble that I lost. I have decided that I need inventory when I'm at a craft fair, and that's what this will end up being. I don't have many bright fabrics but I'll be putting them in the last set.
I was happy to snag this photo of Eddie. He's a rescue and seems to think a camera is a gun. He's a fabulous dog. I couldn't help think that in six weeks all this growth will be frozen and we'll be moving into our next season, possibly with a fire in the woodstove. How quickly this year has gone.
On the Kindle: Every Patient Tells a Story: Medical mysteries and the art of diagnosis by Lisa Sanders.
From the Library: The Tiger's Wife by Tea Obreht (named by The New Yorker as one of the twenty best American fiction writers under forty)
In Paperback: The Delta Girls by Gail Brandeis. I planned to say I'm reading this, but I started it yesterday and finished this afternoon. It's not great literature, but it was wonderful reading - one of those books that you totally tumble into. Now I have to wait another three years for her to write another book :(
And Still Not Perfect
