Not that I have any particularly bad memories of the year, it's been ok. I think it will go down in my memory as the Year I Learned to Control the Dyes, thanks to a week with Carol Soderlund. Worth all the other fabric related classes I've taken, and then some. I'll be taking Part Two with her in July.
I've work short hours since Christmas, and have been BUSY! Shannon and I made scrubs to give as gifts:
Pumpkin spice brown sugar scrub (smells yummy!)
Sweet orange salt scrub- another heavenly smell.
All nicely packaged and ready to gift- Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub, Sweet Orange Salt Scrub, Lavender Salt Scrub.
We made kolache, a scrumptious, highly caloric cookie I only make at Christmas. Butter, cream cheese, flour, and apricot filling- that's it. But they are to die for.
I decided it was time to get the mis-dyed color swatches done for my Dye Bible. These are the last of the dozen or so I did, ready for the washout.
And I decided it was time to clean up the studio, I have a Tangled Textile piece I need to get started on this week. And, what better way to usher in the new creative year? Wow, I can see the floor of my fabric closet! I managed to get rid of one plastic storage bin that was taking up valuable storage space, and get other stuff better organized. And yes, I threw out stuff too!!
Woohoo, Utah just pulled off a win in overtime against Georgia Tech!! (Sorry, Judy!!) What a game- BYU won their bowl game yesterday, which meant I really wanted Utah to win theirs. College football and New Year's- what better combination!
I'm wishing everyone a happy and prosperous New Year, with blessings and creativity. That's my prayer for the year!
