Rhymes With Fuchsia

Sunday, July 23, 2006


Thanks, everyone, for your words of sympathy, encouragement and pants-kicking. Despair is the lazy way out -- you are so right, Roxie! Back to the garden I go. And I owe you all a couple of sky pictures. Shortly after I finished the previous post I went outside and discovered that things were improving.

We ate dinner on the deck as the clouds flew away.

That's what I get for whining! I'm done for now, I promise.

Yesterday brought a lowering sky that kept dripping all day, but it also brought a box full of goodies...

and more goodies.

There were actually even more goodies, but I'd hate to be responsible for mass sensory overload. In one respect, the box's timing was bad: you all may remember that Ruth was kind enough to share her spoils with me when the box visited her, and I promised to do the same in return. At the moment, however, Ruth is off on vacation and not scheduled to return for another three weeks. So, Ruth, what should we fight over?


  • I'm glad you're feeling better. Lovely sky... and great yarn porn.

  • Sometimes we just have to wait till the great wheel turns. But the traveling stash would certainly bring in some upspin! Too, too, awesomely cool for school! What fun. Did you spread it out on the floor and wallow in it a bit? Did the cats offer to wallow in it? It just looks like a wallow-worthy buncha yarn.

    Glad you're looking up at last. I was getting pretty tired of checking you blog and finding those damn dwarves again.

  • Oh ho -- I am behind on the Stash, but now I know where it is... Sorry you've gotten it while Ruth's gone... Hope it lightens the mood. Hubby tells me all the time that when the world as we know it comes to an end, at least we'll have socks. Lots of socks.

  • I forgot to respond to your comment! the handdyed is handpainted rayon boucle from Mystical Creations Yarns and should be about 300 yds.
