this and that

first... a shameless promotion:  Kate took lots and lots of newly dyed spinning fibers to Northwest Wools
today, including BFL, superwash BFL, merino/tencel... all really beautiful!

the first photo is my granddog, Tiki, a big ole lovin' Chinook.  she tries very hard to get along with our 2 spoiled pooches, but doesn't meet with a lot of success.  they tolerate her and that's about all.

it's a sunny and hot day.  when i went to the garden to water thirsty plants, i took my camera and found this sweet rosebud getting ready to open.  it's one of the "old" roses and i don't remember its name... but Lynne will know.  after it opens i'll take another pic.
i just have to use an expression i heard Whoopi use in describing Glenn Beck on The View.  and since i have a congested-cough-all-night-get-no-sleep-dreaded-lurgy kind of thing wearing me out, i'll use it this way.... i feel "like a sack of dog mess" and will now take myself to the sofa and see if possibly there is anything worth having on tv while i try to nap.

It is all lovely!

How wonderful that Kate is following while dancing outside your footsteps!

And also how wonderful that you have given her the freedom to explore and be her own fiber artist.

Look forward to obtaining some. Price list please.
