Just for equal time, my friend Barbara sent me this Palin/McCain cartoon:
Our church's Festival of the Arts begins with the Preview Party on Saturday evening. I'm slowly but surely winding things up around here. This cami has been a long process of complex cloth, but I think I finally found the answer last week when I decided to batik it and then overdye it one more time. I just love how it has turned out. I don't think I'll put it on my table for sale, but I wanted to show you now.

I have a funny story to tell you about the circular motif that is in the center of the detail shot above. C and I were walking Barker in Midtown one day when he hiked his leg on a fire hydrant. I glanced down on the other side of the hydrant, and there was this wonderfully round black object that I just had to have. I said something to C about it, and he gave me the most horrified look and then muttered something about not picking up any object that was next to a fire hydrant. So I grabbed one of the 'doggie poop bags' that we always carry with us when we walk Barker in the city, and carefully picked up the object. I brought it home and sterilized it....isn't it a great stamp!!!

Tomorrow will be a busy day: pricing and tagging all of my items and then setting up my table in the little gift shop area. Of course, as things go, I'm doing everything at the very last minute, but that just makes the adrenalin flow faster!!!
If you haven't seen this amazing YouTube of the dancing dog, take a peek, it is quite amazing and the accompanying music is awesome!
PEACE, HOPE, CHANGE:
