I don’t think this Thankful Thursday post could go by without me being thankful for all of the support and well wishes from everyone during the blizzard. We never could have made it through without good friends like the Milton’s who so thoughtfully brought us a generator. We could not have stayed in our home during that storm without it. I don’t even know how to repay such awesomeness!!! We also never could have gotten by without our “Blizzard Buddies”, the Folino’s. My friend coined that term this week and she hit it right on the money. We always manage to turn a winter storm or hurricane into something fun and exciting with them. I also had my wonderful quilty friends to see me through via the internet. I appreciate every message and email I received from you all with words of comfort and reassurance and lots of humor. I am blessed more than I deserve to be.
I’m amazed that not one drop of blue dye stayed blue during the process. The fuchsia definitely reigned supreme here. The blue and yellow turned to green. The fuchsia and blue turned to purple. It’s an interesting piece now. Due to there being no heat on my second floor (which is being fixed tomorrow), the snow took forever to melt…we’re talking hours and hours here. I decided since we got a light snow last night to try it again with the fluffier stuff. The snow from yesterday was quite packed down. Today’s is much fluffier but when I poured the dye in, the snow wanted to melt quickly. More quickly than I would have liked. So in the washing machine now is this batch:
This is Bubble Gum Pink and Lemon Yellow dyes. You’ll have to tune in tomorrow to see how this one goes.
Today I lost the afternoon to the computer and my old picture files. I’m working on my scrapbook plan for next weekend’s retreat and came across this one of Lindsey. I can. not. stand. how. cute. this. is.
And because I was lost in their sweetness all afternoon, I had to share this one with their brand new fleece ponchos that I made them…where oh where does time go…why oh why does it have to go so dang fast…
Have a beautiful day.
