It is so interesting to sit here and hear the rain hitting the skylights on one side of the house and hear a different kind of singing from a mockingbird on the other side of the house. We have not had rain in over a month, so I am absolutely loving this! Yesterday I had lunch with a friend and discovered that it had rained in my neighborhood when I drove home. Although I was grateful for the rain, I was disappointed to have missed it. Then it started again and we received 1.6 inches! A glorious day. Plus, I don’t need to water the veggies! But rain does cause the grass to grow, which brings mowing.
As part of a dye/Munsell color study group, I am putting together sheets like these. At first I was very frustrated because of the difficulty, but then discovered the actual process of doing it. Duh! There’s a process! Tomorrow I am having my work checked by my friend Pat. I have mentioned before her before here. Here is a link to the New Munsell Student Set on Amazon. Not an inexpensive investment.
I have also been investigating database programs. Years ago I used Filemaker Pro and downloaded the free trial of the newest version. You know, they add so many bells and whistles to the programs! I’m not sure I like it better, but will try to withhold judgment for a little while. If I stick with the old one, that will sure save me some money. Any programs that you like and can recommend?
And, speaking of money, I did a dye inventory in preparation for the study group and placed an order with Pro Chem. A BIG order! But no one wants to run out of warp in the middle of a weaving project or dye during a dyeing project. Check out the price of turquoise…Wow!
