CANADA WINS THE MENS OLYMPICS CURLING CHAMPIONSHIP
Hurry , Hurry hard. This is something that you yell when the sweepers are
sweeping your stone down the ice. If anyone did watch the game or games
you would hear them ....some of them even end up losing their voices.
Well I am so so happy that canada won the mens olympic curling championship....
GO CANADA !!!!!
The ladies didnt do so bad either they got a bronze yipeeeee.
What most of you dont know is that I used to curl for about 6 years
when I used to live back in canada, so this is very close to my heart.
Please indulge me
Our home and native land
True patriot love, in all our sons command.
With Glowing hearts, we see thee rise
The true north strong and free
From far and wide
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee
God keep our land
Glorious and free
O Canada we stand on guard for thee
O Canada we stand on guard forrrrrrrrrrrrr theeeeee

To my valentine a fabric card!
Ok so a bit behind in blogging but still wanted
to keep you up to date with whats happening.
Yesterday was soooo busy (Saturday)

course at Art Van Go . We had a wonderful time

one day workshop. Pictures to come monday,
so as to give you time to digest all the other posts

Rust Dyeing in process
Well I just had to try doing some rust dyeing.
I had an old rusty pair of pliers that we found in
the garden, so thought hmmm lets try those.
I put fabric around the piece, wet it and sat it
in the backyard... for about 4 weeks ... had a look
nothing!! kept wetting it but I think it dried out
to many times. The aha! I read somewhere
to use vinegar and wrap it up in a bag.. well
that is what I did and tada! (for a week)
I almost left it a bit to long as it is a bit crunchy
and almost starting to desolve the fabric with
rust dye.... so may redye it with rust to continue
the pattern .... stay tuned.
