First: Thanks for all the encouragements toward my dyeing efforts. I am very pleased with the Crimson. (It still hasn't been placed away!) I want to keep looking at it...thinking 'I made that!') And I do think once I overdyed the yellow to green, it turned out very passable. (Lynne, it might end up in Atomic Sisters. There is 275yds, 6 oz, of 2-ply at 12-14 wpi.) It is trial and error, however. So much so, that I called the yarn garage sale person to see if she had sold the rest of her dyes. She had, but not to be outdone, DSis and I hunted down clearance Easter Egg dye.
Oh yeah. I am good for some more trial and error-ing. And we both love us some bargain shopping!
Second: The soap felting FO's are pictured in the post. They are used just like that, for wash clothes/scrubbies/latherer-uppers. I tried one out in the shower, and with 'soaping up' action between the hands, quite a bit of lather was produced. AND! I do believe the wool must have some ex-foliating qualities. So sorry if the last post was disconnected and unclear.
See. We've been on the run. Saturday the agenda included The. Auto. Show! in Denver where many things were seen and experienced.
This creepy, scary snowman...
And this. I am still trying to understand this last...Is Fox News being...funny? Or making fun of themselves?
(What? You were expecting photos of cars maybe?)
For lunch we went here! Be still, my heart. This is my favorite place ever to have lunch in Kansas City. It it THE PLACE for lunches with sisters and daughters and nieces. It is a signature place at a singular location with outstanding dishes. And desserts to die for.
And there is also one in Denver. It is not quite the same, a bit more...western...in its approach. And yet. There is a bit of the same ambiance and way of doing things and a familiarity that feels very good.
And. Desserts to die for.
After lunch, we stopped here. Wonderful Guy takes me to yarn shops. I go to fish stores. (And apparently Auto Shows...)
There were some other stops on the way north that involved looking at automobiles. A new one may be in our immediate future, you see, and shopping for these things take time. Or at least for us, it does. (Update: a new one came to live with us Wednesday evening...)
On Sunday, we spent some time with the Grandbebe Girls and their parents for the 'official' birthday party. Her peers around so the party girl was all involved with her party peeps, and had little time for old people. I did get a photo or two, though.
Brushing off the buns after sliding into the dirt!
I think she loves her grandmama!
So busy as bees and trying to keep up with it all!
