Not as bad as you think, but certainly irritating. First that (I like to finish on a positive note).
Some weirdo friggin’ stole my hanging plants from off my porch! Bastards! Either they did it while I was in the TV room watching the Fifth Element, or they did it between 2am and 5am (when I was asleep). Seriously? Hanging plants? They were $15 each! Not expensive! Cheap bastards. Well, I suppose we shall have to go to Pike and get some new ones. I liked the purple one better anyhow, so we’ll probably just get two of those. Or maybe some crappy-ass Boston ferns, because the neighbors still have theirs.
And then the good is that (1) I finished the craft project of Doom (okay, not of doom, but my thumb is swollen from cutting things out of cardstock) and (2) I found Traditional Jewelry of India by Oppi Untracht for $35 on abebooks.com! Woohoo! Thanks to Vairavi for pointing me there for the Kelsey Museum textiles book. I had to stop searching for things because I was afraid of what I’d find. The Kelsey book is used (at $20, I’m not going to whine) but the jewelry book is new! (aargh. just checked on Amazon and it’s $35 there, too; I have purchased the paperback version) Well, anyway – I’m excited about it. I was really sad to have to return it to the library when it was due back.
And now that I’ve got one craft project out of the way, I can focus on fabric printing. Hooray for fabric printing!
