I taught a tie-dye class at FSU yesterday--15 students dyeing silk scarves. Did I think to take my camera??
Here's the three I have now--the one I've had for three weeks and the two new ones. One of the new guys is having problems--it's not easy to fall out of a tree--but I'm doing my best for him.
We're stepping up on the Halloween stuff. Like many things in life, you can have good, cheap, or fast--pick two of the three. If you want it good, and cheap, then you have to start working early. Bob's been shopping at Curbies (everyone's favorite--it means that you grab stuff that's being thrown away) and we've been hitting the Good Cents store (the cheap part of Goodwill). He brought home three tall pillars, a tall plastic candlestick, and various dolls. The pillars and candlesticks were given a quick marbeling job, which greatly improved their appearance. He's also hung more dolls on the fence to age.
Critter du jour: Nazgul
It's a good thing we named him before we knew him. He looks very elegant, but he's a grabber of ankles and "helps" Bob to tie his shows and tends to trip us when we're trying to walk across the yard, thus earning his second name of "Major Silly Pants."
Picture doesn't do justice to his eyes--they really are emerald green.
