We have food!

Really, we do. It's very exciting for us. We bought lots of food and didn't spend an exorbitant amount of money. How you may ask? Well, this part sucks. I had to drop my resolve to buy only or mostly natural and organic food. There's much canned stuff. Also, hamburger helper. Yup. I'm sad and slightly embarrassed, but desperate times call for desperate (and mostly not-that-healthy) measure.

Enough of that. I did some more shibori yesterday! Finally, I know. I think I'll be using shibori also in my quilting final project. Hmmmm. I'm looking forward to it. Not telling yet, though, I still have to think and gestate.

I found a lot of great new (to me) blogs and such today. I'm pretty excited and will show them to you... sometime.

22 hours at Sbux plus 11 for Fiber Dept. plus 28 hours in class equals 61 hours.

I had a conversation with an older guy at Kroger. He was my cashier and I thought that he probably thought he would be retired by now, but the economy is so terrible. It made me feel sad. I could see in his face that it made him happy. He was surprised.

These are stunning!!!!!! How weird - I just, just, just found the coolest shibori shirts to post tomorrow on scoutie girl (12:30).

Thank you so much!! That's so funny. Shibori is everywhere! Can't wait to see the shirts.

Oh, Brittany, these are beautiful!

The economy is so hard for so many right now. I'm sad that you're eating Hamburger Helper though, and the foodie in me has wept a single tear (right there, in the corner of my eye) so I'm going to send you some recipes, k? They got me through my college years without having to eat ramen *every* day. :D

Hi Lisa! That would be so sweet of you! I keep thinking I need to find a college cookbook, with real recipes for real food. The grownup ones that promise to "have common ingredients" (like goat cheese?!) and "30 minutes or less" (If you're a robot) just aren't cutting it. The foodie in my was kicking and screaming at the grocery store. I just can't afford enough good food to actually feed us for more than a couple days. Sigh. At least I got whole grain Triscuits and hummus!

I love this series. The fabrics are so, completely stunning.

Jen - Thanks! It's not so much a series as it is a... class. Haha! But, I will have to do a few actual projects that are more than just playing around (I have a 1 yd piece due in a couple weeks), so I guess it is a series :) I absolutely love this technique and will definitely be using it... pretty much forever!
