And it’s perfect! This photo doesn’t show the richness of the color, but it does show the design. There’s just a little more variation in color than this photo shows. It’s a nice true indigo, but not too dark with touches of aqua and purple. It’s perfect!
I may start getting this cut and onto the blocks tomorrow, but I have to do some arranging on the design wall first to make it feel more random.
Last night I painted another set of four little water colors for holiday cards for people at work. This batch was done with a really pretty teal color, but on the same design. I love this color! It really feels like a cold winter day.
Here’s a close up of one card. I just love these!
I need to paint five more. I’ll start them tonight and finish them up tomorrow.
Tomorrow I’m also going to finish the gussets on the four pouch sets that are nearly done. I have a sheep herding lesson with a guy from Washington at 11 am and have the rest of the day to hunker down at home.
Rico had his weekly herding lesson today and he was awesome. We took a nice long walk in the sun after the lesson. It was so gorgeous! I was in shirt sleeves the entire time and we walked over four miles.
This field is on the campus of Washington State University but it’s sort of isolated and not in view of the campus buildings, which means I don’t have to worry so much about getting cited. So I let the dogs off leash and let them run while I walk laps. Four laps is one mile. It gets me another mile under my belt and they get about 20 minutes of running. We’re all happy.
It was a little cool in the woods. There was actually some ice on the trail in the shady spots, and some of the trail was wet and slick. These boys dumped me on my butt on one slope! I dug in to keep them from pulling me too fast and my feet slipped out from under me. Down I went!
I got my lighted wreaths up when I got home this afternoon. I had to borrow an extension cord from my neighbor to get the last wreath lit. I don’t have any power outlets on the front of my house so I have to run these cords through the garage. They are all on a timer now. It’s not much but it’s nice to not be completely dark in a neighborhood with more lights being put up every day.
Bonus Christmas border collies on the porch!
