In the kitchen.

The dye kitchen, that is.  I needed some interesting wool for the cheese on my pizza.  I had a few pieces of wool in pale yellow, which I cooked with onion skins.  Some of it came out a bit dark, but I think it will work if I blend several values. For the colorful toppings, I’ve added pepperoni, anchovies, red and green peppers, and slices of red onion. 

The hooking on the pizza is proceeding quickly, which is good, because I must get my next super secret project underway.  I know what I’m going to do, but I will need to dye some wool.  I’m trying to keep in mind the meditation card, Whirlwind, which means I need to shake things up and not just work on one thing at a time, as I usually do.

I’m also planning on hooking a narrow, vertical piece with the word, Welcome, on it for the back hallway wall.  Ugh, more lettering, which I do not enjoy, but once again, I need to shake things up here.

Crow's Foot Farm is home to dogs and chickens as well as two humans.  This past Thursday, I lost one of my sweet old biddy hens, Edith Olive.  She hurt her leg three years ago and I nursed her back to health, albeit with a permanent limp.  She just absolutely disappeared, so I assume a large varmint of some kind got into the pen and took her away.  This can lead to more brazen thefts, so we will be on the lookout for the culprit.  I think I should make a rug in Edith Olive’s honor.

There’s a lot of beauty out there and in cooking with wool.

P.S.  Be sure to read my blog next Monday, when I will be doing a BOOK GIVEAWAY.  You will love this book!  In the meantime, if you haven't "Liked" my Facebook business page yet, I invite you to do so.  I'm almost to 1,000 Likes!

The pizza is well underway.  Stay tuned for how I will finish and bind when the hooking is complete.
