I hauled myself out to the dye studio today to get lots of roving weighed out for the dyeing this weekend. I decided to play my new CDS: Puccini Without Words & Opera Without Words, both by Andre Kostelanetz...oh, and the Best of the Ventures (love that old time surf music). While I was there, the clouds dropped low over the mountains and there was lots of thunder, but no rain. It was all very cozy.
There are only three more openings and two more days left to subscribe to the next Roving Art club. This has my head spinning with ideas of paintings to use for my inspiration. I so admire people who have that talent. Several years ago I took about 4 months' worth of beginning oil painting classes. Boy, was that a humbling experience. I have only two paintings I will let anyone see as a result of those classes. This is one of them. Believe me when I say that the others are not ever going to be seen by human eyes again.
And here's the baby blanket I was talking about yesterday when I posted. I'm using up odd balls of Manos del Uruguay from about 2004. I love knitting the log cabin square and decided to make the entire blanket one big square. I love donation knitting. I have about 8 scarves stashed already for donation to the homeless shelter. They're what I knit at night when I don't know what I really want to knit. Good for the head, the hands, and the soul.
