|(fond sigh, my favorite labs)
yesterday afternoon a large package addressed to me arrived in my absence (I was in the office all day) delivered by the post (wo)man on our doormat; our youngest son was at home during that period and paid no attention whatsoever to the sound of the frontdoor being opened and closed: he assumed it was his older brother returning home! My husband found the package on his entrance and handed it over to me as soon as I got home. A parcel from the inimitable Julie (I wholly recommend paying her blog a visit for many reasons, one of them being her incredibly amusing story telling) a parcel full of goodies: the India Flint eco dye book and another one on how to go about harvesting the dye ingredients, colourful fabrics, many kind words, the postcard above by Stephen Huneck
|.....this exquisite fabric, I have an idea what to do with it Julie!!
|I'm definitely going to get a piece done with this fabric for the exhibition this January, the dyeing experiments will follow afterwards as soon as the exhibit is one it's way and I have more time on my hands...I can hardly wait.
|.....jelly beans for the boys;-)
it was a wonderful home-coming, my birthday and christmas wrapped into one, thank you so much Julie
|and because it is a fun post I add these pics: last Sunday I was in den Bosch with my mum and sister, where we visited the Stedelijk Museum and I noticed these rings: not very practical to wear but a lot of fun!
|and on our way back to the train station we saw these in a shop window: hey wouldn't it be fun to make these with a bunch of kids in a workshop?! I especially like the mohawk hairdo in the middle
