Colors to Dye For... (and other random stuff)

The past couple of days have been spent dying wool. A messy job, but I love looking at the spectrum colors of beautiful wool when it's done. I don't use recipes for the dye, I just kind of dump it in and see what happens.... sometimes the color comes out kind of, well, odd... but usually they are pretty... of course, the photos don't do the colors justice. This wool will make its way into some more pins and kits for the pins, which I will sell at my next quilt show.The daffodils are blooming now, adding some much anticipated color to the garden.

Tonight we are headed to Philadelphia to see a new musical based on the tv show "Happy Days". Can't wait- it was one of my very favorite shows when I was a kid, and I'm looking forward to seeing The Fonz dance and sing, along with Richie, Joanie, Potsie, Ralph Mouth... (post note- I just found out his name is actually Ralph Malph- all of these years I thought it was Mouth- cause he had a big mouth- ha ha) I hope my daughter enjoys it- she has seen the show just once or twice on Nick at Night. I also used to ADORE Laverne and Shirley- remember Lenny and Squiggy? So funny. And I remember my friends and I used to do the opening little number from the show on the school playground- 5,6,7,8, Schlameel.... something, something incorporated... Maybe someday they will make a Laverne and Shirley musical, I would love that.

What are some of your favorite TV memories?

  6. Ooooh!! I love the wool and can't wait til our weather warms up and I can do some of the same thing. Let's see T.V. memories........I loved westerns perhaps because for a long time only my grandparents had a T.V. and my grandpa always had it tuned to westerns. And grandma watched Lawrence Welk. I loved the Donna Reed show and I thought Kookie was cool when he combed his hair. LOL!!
