It's my birthday! And there were presents including,in the middle, wearing a quilted blanket, the new sheep that joined my collection today, a gift from Younger Son.
Also new is a taleidoscope, a tube lined with mirrors, using a clear marble as a lens, creating images from the real world, like those a kaleidoscope does with bits and pieces. This one is encased in an exotic wood tube and has its own stand. I had asked for one, thinking I would use it to help with color selection. (It will work well for that, too.) However, I find it fascinating to just look through. Patterns in the rug, the blinds on the window, my stash all take on new dimensions.
I can vaguely remember visions like these. But then, I stoped drinking. . .
The Origami mittens are finished (I wish I could say the same for this stupid purple sock!) We spent a couple hours getting the camera to interface with the computer. There will be more photos. Just not today.
