Hot Colors on a Cold Day
Since it's too snowy to go to work, I've been working from home today: getting ahead on my class that should start on Thursday (tomorrow's classes have already been canceled), I've played around on the new Library of Congress web page (http://www.loc.gov/index.html), even read a couple of journals.
Etsy shop. On the left is 'Fire.' On the right is 'Mars.' Mars came out just lovely in the Blue Faced Leicester base top. The last time I dyed it it was a bit dark and murky and I could not photograph it well enough to out it online. This time it is just cheery and bright.
You might notice that the roving is drying in front of the solar hot water heater. We will not be making our own hot water today as the solar panels are covered with an insulating blanket of snow.
So here are my choices. Option One: Stay warm and cozy. Drink tea or hot cocoa.
Option Two: Go outside and play. Come back in and have a cup of tea.
I'm going for Door #2!
