Hello, thanks for visiting! I've been wearing and enjoying my Sunday Shawl since the flowers have been blooming and Spring seems to be here - but it's still chilly enough to need a hat - and so I decided to get some of the same yarn I used on the shawl to make a colorful matching hat! It arrived yesterday. I really adore this yarn - it's made and dyed by a mother daughter team in Africa. I love supporting their small business there. I buy it from Julie at Little Woolie Makes online shop in Victoria, Australia. Now to decide on a pattern that will have as much excitement as the Sunday Shawl!
I love how organic this yarn looks. The dye is a bit erratic, which I actually like.
I have gotten several compliments when I wear this. I have decided that at the age of almost 69 years of age, I'm done wearing dark muted colors and am embracing color.
We do have quite the automobile collection around here with 5 drivers living here and some having multiple vehicles.. well, let's put it this way.. I only have one car.. and I'm the only one with a singular vehicle. :-) I haven't even shown you Travis' new red Mustang. Must do that. (Including antique cars, we have 11 altogether.)
I'm just pleased having it all look so nice and tidy.
The green pepper is getting big, too!
More attic finds. I'd even forgotten these two goblets that I made! I threw these on a potter's wheel, first the top of the goblet, then the base, then attached them together, bisque fired them, glazed them and used cobalt oxide to paint grapes on them. I noticed that the bases weren't quite the same, but hey, that's the beauty of handmade things, they aren't perfect. :-)
In the box that Kristi brought down are a whole set of these matching cups that I made, each one a bit different, this was my own design. Also hand-thrown on the potters wheel and fired once, glazed and finish firing. :-)
Well.. time for me to get ready to attend a funeral of a friend, Nev Scott. She was quite a character and I expect a huge crowd at the church for her service. She was 86. She and I worked together on the Vista House project.
Have a wonderful week.. and be sure and tell those you love how you feel about them.. life is short and you never know when you will lose someone. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
