The Good, the Bad.

....there's already plenty of ugly in the past few posts.

The Bad: My 400 t-shirts project has somehow gone awry. The shirts are pale. They either didn't get warm enough, or I goofed up the soda ash somehow. The shirts were left in garbage bags (one per class) in a room set to 85 degrees Fahrenheit. I'm not sure the warmth got through to all the shirts. As for soda ash, there's a good chance I used too much. Am going to the school tomorrow for a personal peek.

The Good: Scrumbling. I love it, though have never tried it. For those not in the know, scrumbling is free form knitting and crochet. Scrumblers know who they are and Prudence Mapstone is their Chief. Her blog makes me happy. Check it out.

It's Been a Busy Week

400 grade school children with t-shirts, a dozen volunteer parents, 4 full days, two of my children, and me.

Guess how much dye we used.

Now here is a conundrum...

Cathy and I both use blogger. Her laptop did not follow her to my house this weekend when she came to visit and here all I've done is innocently gone to post my Where I Stand post and lookey lookey...she's still logged into blogger.

I could be a good girl and simply log her out and go about my business. But really, where's the fun in that?

So I offer you one of the photos I have from my "Cathy" album in my iPhoto library. She is fearless in front of the camera and it never really phases her when I threaten to blog the photos I take so I figure she won't mind if I put one here:




I'm posting.

I'm at Lynn's. We are wearing pajamas. We are watching horrible television. We are knitting.

I love it.
