WHAT'S HAPPENING -One of the things I did for "The Daughter's" Birthday was tie dye her some chair covers. I bought some plain white chair covers at a yard sale - $10. for 4 of them. But then thought, ugh, I really don't want to giver her white chair covers. They will get stained so fast and she will forever be bleaching them.
Then all of the sudden it hit me - "I'll tie die them to match her Apt."!
Well this is no easy and quick undertaking! I am an experienced dyer, but what took so long was - there were 4 of them, they were big, and they were like a canvas material so heavy and thick.
Here is the step by step process -
This is the "before" picture - the plain white covers.
Put them through the washer (about 30 min.) and dryer (about 40 min.)
TV - Shows I've watched so far -
Parenthood - I always record this on DVR and watch it with the daughter. The Season opener was great! It felt so good to be back with them again, LOL.
Survivor - Wow, there are already some people I really like and really don't like!
I have always loved "Coach" as quirky as he is! This season he really seems like he has a chance. He is much nicer and has calmed down. Ozzie, on the other hand - i always liked, but do not like him as much this season, he has to prove himself to me.
Albert - Wow! the Bod!
Jim - let's just call him "Jim the Jerk"
John "the geek" - are you serious? You will never survive!
Rick - bad attitude
The others I have yet to form an opinion - stay tuned for next weeks evaluation.
KNITTING - Everyone seemed to love the tomato! Thanks. The stem and leaves have not been sewed on yet. That is the worst part for me. Finishing!
My plan is to knit lots of veggies - eggplant, onion, garlic, carrot, squash etc. and ten felt a bowl to put them in as a gift for my Mom-in-law! Hopefully for Christmas.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT -
The only things cold weather is good for -
The food! good winter foods -
Soup! I love soup but can not eat it in the summer, too hot.
Oatmeal, yum, and healthy too.
Chili, I love Chili, meatless, of course! (tomatoes, onions, peppers, 2 kinds of beans, chilli powder, serve over rice with melted cheese on top!)
Spanish Rice - I make it with V8 juice! One of my fav. winter meals.
Hot tea instead of iced tea. I love herbal teas and love having a cup in the evening.
And - ice cream! Well you didn't actually think I would give up ice cream over the winter, did you?
