I'm a pretty colorful person...
Literally. Like, my hands have been not only dyed, but Tie-Dyed. An entire myriad of colors. Our activities committee planned an evening of Tie-Dying for the ward. We all brought various white items (including aprons, ball caps, tee-shirts, sweat bands, etc) and we made them technicolor! It was a blast, but left most of us looking like we either were horribly bruised or victims of severe frost bite. I was asked to demonstrate for the entire group and thus was exposed to the most pigment, because I was asked to help several others once I had finished my two projects. It turned out to be a great activity. Kudos to Eric and Jen for planning it.
I also spent the afternoon looking up coupons and discounts for fabric to begin my fabulous quilt project. After scrounging up a 50% off one cut of fabric and an overall 15% off entire purchase discount, I left Joann's $34 richer than I should have. The fabrics and general layout are depicted below. More details will be documented as the project progresses.
