Dying

We're all still feeling pretty bleck -- still sick. I spoke with my girlfriend Gracie last night on the phone and apparently she has the same thing we do. Yes, she agrees; being sick sucks.

So, as I leisure around I'm continuing to read Indigo Dying -- I just got to the point where the villain gets what's coming to him and I still have half of the book to go.  I can't help but want to know what's to come; it's a real "page turner!"  I also like that the author has woven in real information (on dying fibers and on herbs & such) with the story line.  I don't know how much of it I will absorb (no pun intended), but it's one of those books that's worth a "re-read" -- so I'm sure I'll be referencing to it in the future.

I haven't done much crocheting ... just working on an eye glass case when I get small bursts of energy (it's really a modified Treasure Bag).  I'm crocheting it up with a fantastic new fiber that has a blend of rainbow colors with gold flecks. The fiber "flares" now & then and when it's worked up with an "F" hook it just makes the most gorgeous fabric!  The trick is to find a button to go with it; hopefully I have one in stock because I'm not up to driving right now.  Once we're all feeling better, it will be time to go shopping for the sunglasses to go into the case.  (once I locate what I did w/the yarn label, I'll post it so you all know which fiber I'm currently dying over)

I clicked on your link to the book and it sounds good...I'll have to see if our local library has it or not.
I do hope all of you get well soon!
