Oh, Monday...




I'm still working on Poseidon, so I don't have a lot to show on my design wall.

My friend Beth (who blogs here) often sends me goodies from South Africa where she lives.  This is an amazing bit of batik -- I love the elephants.  It's about 20 inches square and I hate to cut it up.  So I'm trying to decided how to use it.  Maybe as a center of something?

 This is a wonderful little postcard Beth made -- the aloe flower has sparkly beads! And the leaves have spikes!  Just like a real aloe plant!


And these are some things I dyed last week.  I love these Caribbean colors!

Yum! The hand dyes do look tropical sort of like a mango salsa. Keep your eye on the mailbox... some "May" goodies coming too.
