My World Today, Yesterday, and the Day Before

Not much going on here and since I haven't seen updates on many blogs, it's either school vacation or the Olympics that has everyone busy. I finally stopped tearing pictures out of magazines long enough to paint some fabric for my African quilt. Nice big stripes--this is only a portion. And in the way upper right corner you can see the other piece of the African quilt which I used as a color model so the stripes would "look good" with it. I was tempted to put polka dots all over the blue zigs--but I restrained myself. I also used dry fabric and very little water in the paint mix. Fabric is stiff but I like the dense color.

I don't know what the rest of you are watching, but I am watching Curling. I love that blue and red circle or as I think of it, "the Dot". I think it's cute they call the center the "button". I am still in the dark as to the rules or the point of the game but it doesn't seem to lessen my interest in watching. Every evening from 5 pm to 8 pm. Last night my friend Kay admitted to watching also. We are such TWINS! She watches from 8 am to 11 am. I didn't know about the morning curling and she didn't know about the evening curling. Now we can "double up".

Finally, a self portrait. Me, my black sweatpants and my red slippers which I wear all day, everyday, unless I go outside. I haven't been out today but I will be going out soon to get the newspaper and the mail. I hope the newspaper will have the scores from the women's curling with Russia. The great minds at USA cable stopped showing the match just as the USA and Russia were tied at 7 each with a tie breaker end starting. They show all the real boring stuff and when we get to a tie breaker---bang we're done. There better be some "Good Mail" out there in my polka dot mailbox!!!! I'm not in a very good mood. But curling will be starting in 2 hours and 15 minutes.
