I had two pieces of very important mail arrive on Wednesday afternoon: First, the pretty one:
a lovely fabric postcard from my friend Terry Grant in Portland, OR. I had sent Terry three colorful wine bottle corks, and she sent me this in thanks. I think I got the far better end of the deal, don't you!!!
The other package was from Pro Chem and included this lovely accessory:
Cute, huh?!!! I already had a respirator, but decided to update to this one, which ProChem claims is suited to Thiox. Since I use the stuff a good bit in my 'work' (and my play) I decided I would bite the bullet and get one....besides, I know that I am stylin' with the purple and yellow against my red hair! (By the way, the latest word from my ENT since my CT Scan is that all of my sinuses are gunked up, so I will be on a round of prednisone AND antibiotics in hopes of remedying the situation! I am so full of hope these days!).
And lastly, I want to share this with you:
I have finally put the finishing touches on this silk charmeuse halter top for K! I hand-dyed, dishcharged and stamped the buttery soft charmeuse, and then used Amy Grant's Cabo Halter pattern to construct it. K is so tiny that it required much alteration, but we've finally gotten it right. Ethel, my mannequin, is a bit larger than K, so she doesn't show it off quite so well, but you can get the general idea!
That's all for today............but don't forget to leave a comment about the Obama/Biden ticket! We finally have HOPE for a CHANGE!! WooHoo!!!
PEACE & HOPE
