After this whirlwind day, it seems like Saturday took forever to get here. Got a small walk in yesterday. With humidity being lower, it is so much easier to breathe outside. Have had a time with the heat rash itch so hubby had said to put alcohol on it...it worked..It keeps the itch at bay. And good news is he is back to normal and toe is just about healed. That is one thing I've seen having RA over the years....when I get cuts and bumps they seem to heal really fast. I've had no pain with the toe and it looks great..And other good news we have the partial floor in the bath..the wood top floor that is..and we have the tub installed and the base of the commode is in so no more stink at least. We are headed to Atwoods this afternoon so going to be another busy day.
On a crafty note. I've been working on one color sampler that is worked in black. It does have a border or bright orange. I'm working this on evenweave and wanted a pale orange fabric. So I looked in my wool dyes and didn't have an orange so pulled out food coloring...it is not color fast even with me trying to fix it with citric acid..but will work..well the color was a little too peachy. I didn't have quite enough yellow..so once I'm finished stitching it, I will tea or onion skin dye it. It is of some ravens with Edgar Allen Poe's quote.."Quoteth the raven, Nevermore"...I've always love his work and love crows to this is going to be a nice fall piece. I will have to get hubby to make a black prim frame for it later. Have several hooked rugs and penny rugs to get done soon too. Just dreaded pulling out the wool in the heat we have been having...on to my walk now.
