We've had multiple consecutive days of WARM weather! Today the whole family is going to Lagoon, the closest thing Utah has to Disneyland. Should be fun, although I don't know how many of the wild roller coaster rides I'll be doing.
I have also been working hard on my Tangled Textiles piece. It is mostly done, I just have to add some embellishments by hand, and finish the edge. I think I'm going to use the zigzagged edge with perle cotton. Easy to do, and I like the look.
The creative muse seems to be returning to the studio in fits and starts, but I can feel her presence more and more. I'm planning a dyeing day soon, either with my WAQ friends or at home. I've got some clothes I want to make with fabric ready to go. And I have at least two quilts to get quilted!
I am becoming a real thrift store junkie. While we were in Reno, Sean jokingly asked me to buy him a shirt- a Tommy Bahama silk shirt that retailed for $110. Ha ha!! Then when my brother and I were checking out the Saver's in Reno, he found a beautiful blue Tommy Bahama shirt in Sean's size- for $12. I bought it, the look on Sean's face when he saw it was priceless. I scored another one in our store a week ago that just got mailed off to him. Then Friday, I found this-
Sorry the picture is fuzzy, but I took it with my phone and I'm not very good with it. I scored a TB silk shirt for me, in a lovely black/blue/sage green flower print. Love it! It's gotten to be like a treasure hunt, you never know what you'll find. I'll bet three-quarters of my closet is now recycled treasures from Saver's. I have four or five silk shirts, all from Saver's. Unbelievable!
And a monumental event that any woman could relate to- I went shopping for a swimsuit for the first time in over ten years, and found one I like at a price I'm willing to pay. I look pretty good in it, sixty years old or not!!
Time for breakfast, hope your weekend is a fun, warm one!
