Here’s a photo of how my squares are looking for my new crocheted blanket. I was hoping to be further along by now and have many more squares crocheted, but I’m pleased with the progress I’ve made so far.
Earlier this month, on my ‘How to Coffee Dye Fabric’ post a commenter mentioned that they’d ‘be interested to see if the color holds up after a lot of washing.‘
Well, I can’t answer as to the lots of washing, but I did wash the quilt the other day. I washed it just like I wash most anything. I didn’t take any precautions. If the coffee dyed color faded any, I can’t tell it.
I was real surprised and quite pleased.
The above photo is a a crop of a photo of the square of the freshly laundered quilt.
November 26, 2012, I decided to try to grow an avocado plant from seed. I had a couple yucky avocados that I discovered were bad when I bought them. I’d never bought avocados before and I didn’t know what I was looking for. I won’t be buying anymore. lol Anyhow, It’s been 8 weeks and the seeds haven’t cracked open nor popped a root out. It would have been nice if at least one of the seeds would’ve made an effort to grow. Oh well can win them all… sooo I’m giving up.
Not to worry, I’ve got lots of other seeds to plant pretty soon that will probably fair quite well and grow flowers and tasty veggies.
There’s an icy weather front moving across our region.I hope it passes quickly and melts off twice as fast. Hopefully, it won’t effect the electric & dsl and I’ll still be able to visit with you all, but if not then I’ll be around as soon as I can get back online.
I hope you all have a lovely rest of the week.
