Well time chez lizzie has been at a stand still for ages. I have been hanging out at the gym, babysitting a cool kid named Jasmin, and puttering away at some long overdue flooring issues. Not really dyeing much yarn/or roving.
So when the Fredericton designer weavers called on Monday asking me to fill in for their cancelled guest this Saturday, panic struck.I said sure, I'll be there thinking I could dye some stuff no problem. Sure Lizzie. Great idea. Super idea.
I need my head read.
Subflooring is nearly finished in the front hall. Laundry is piled higher and deeper, boxes of ceramic tile are functioning very well as tripping devices, and power tools are scatterded everywhere. So why not attempt to dye yarn on top of it all. I can multi task.
This is all well and good and probably even doable, IF YOUR WATER HEATER DOESN"T CHOOSE TO DIE.
Yup there I was, attempting to shower the floor laying grime off before picking the kiddos up at school, when lo and behold, no Hot H2O. I was not impressed. I figuered it was a fuse, so they got replaced, 24 hours later. no go. still icy cold. Time for a new one. And it is friday. yay. what are the chances of getting one in before the weekend?My guess is slim to none. sigh.
Anyhoo, I made a really cute felted purse this week, before the water heater incident, and was felting two more when I had to give up for lack of hot water. If Kate would visit with her fancy camera, I would post a picture.
Yoo -Hoo, Kate... come visit, bring camera. I actually finished something!!!!!!
I give up. probably no dying going on chez Lizzie.
