Fun with color

I am almost always cold which is one of the reasons I chose to move to Arizona. Trouble is that everything is over air conditioned for me and carrying around a jacket all the time is a pain in the butt. I have figured out a way to brighten up my wardrobe inexpensively AND stay comfortable. I am known around here as the shawl lady. As part of my clean up and reorganize projects today, I decided to organize my shawl collection as well. These hang on a wall in my back hallway to the garage where I can grab one on my way out. These are not real pashmina's but the cheap ones. They work fine for my needs and certainly are cheaper than a bunch of jackets. Plus they never go out of style. Eye candy for sure.

Back home

I am home from my latest trips. First was Carol Soderlund's dye class at QSDS, followed by my trip back east to NY/NJ for my daughter's wedding shower and my dress fitting.
The shower was great and the weather held out so it could be held outdoors. I finished the veil, my shoes are being dyed to match my dress, and I finished embellishing the guest book. Everything seems to be falling into place nicely and I am looking forward to it in 3+ weeks.

The dye class was AWESOME. We worked like elves and had a blast along the way. The link for all the pictures is here.

Hope every one has a wonderful 4th.
