One burlap-bee-basket has been made. A person could make many in one day if she or he cut the pieces the right size the first time. The pattern by maya*made describes it as a nesting bucket, but I'm going with basket. And it really did go together in a flash.
Four little oranges in the making, I hope. It's happened before and they've always fallen off. Fingers crossed.
A new half-batch of raw brownies was made, too. This time I substituted dried unsweetened cherries for some of the medjool dates. It is good. I would compare this recipe to a Lara Bar, if you're wondering. Only better.
I found a forgotten jar of unlabeled dye-bath in the back of a cupboard (my first one ever, I think) and these are the unedited results -- beige, beige with speckles, and dark beige -- actually a really nice set of cloth.
Today is a waxing moonday in the sign of Libra. Sort of feeling like I've been spinning my wheels lately. Frustrated that no matter how fast I moved, nothing (or not enough) seemed to get done. But then, thank goodness, I realized we're in a period of Mercury Retrograde and will be so until July 20 -- and it all made sense. Now I'm thinking that since Mercury only appears to be in reverse, maybe my sense of not getting anything done is an illusion as well. And rather than fighting this feeling, embrace it -- so this week I hope to move slower, look back, review, and then maybe even make a few simple changes.
To go with the flow.
