Happy Mothers Day

Happy Mothers day to all the wonderful Mothers out there whether you have 2 or four footed children its still a day to celebrate.

I was treated to breakfast in bed, eggs, sausage, English muffin and juice, and sliced strawberries nestled in a spinach leaf. It was so pretty I wanted to take a picture but my camera was far away and I ate it all instead. Then when I got up I had these roses too. What a great day so far. I don't get Sarah's gift or anything until tomorrow when I go pick her up.

Yesterday I had another round of dyeing and I am delighted to say that it is all done. Once again I dyed 2 favorite colors Violette's Dream and Oceandreamer. Yes I named colors after Violette, lots of purples and Lisa, some Ocean looking colors. I can't seem to get a good photograph Oceandreamer but here is Violette's dream.

There is an Egyptian exhibit at our local museum and I came away with this Papyrus kit. You get one stamped page to paint, one blank page and pieces of papyrus to make your own paper. I know it is marketed for kids but it was perfect for me.

The printed sheet, I have painted a little but of it since I took this picture. It takes Twinkling H2O's very easily.

This shows the pieces of papyrus, they are very spongy feeling to the touch.

I am headed off to Missoula for a trip to pick Sarah up for the summer, I plan a stop off at the Redsun Labyrinth on the way. It should be a nice trip. See you when I get back.

Sounds like you had a lovely start to your day! How thoughtful and sweet.

and wow, how cool are those wool color names! :) I really want to start doing some needle felting and do have some roving BUT nothing in the colors you create. Perhaps I could be a customer?

Have a safe trip picking up Sarah!
