I've spent several days trying to match perle coton
with this piece of silk that I dyed a few months ago.
The tricky part is not only that one is silk and the other cotton,
but also that the colors that I am matching are mixtures of the two dyes,
which, as part of the process, were blended serendipitously,
rather than by plan.
I'm now satisfied with my tedious mixing
and am ready to begin embroidering on this piece.
I love this rust ring that I found on a cart path
at the golf course this morning.
We have house guests this week while our daughter
attends a seminar about an hour north of us.
What fun for this grandmother!
Sometimes I really wonder what he's thinking,
but when he smiles and leans in to give me a kiss,
I have no doubt in my mind -
and I love it!
