Not much going on in the dye studio these days, it's still too blustery to do any serious dyeing out of doors so I'm keeping myself busy writing up new tutorials for natural dyeing, and starting this weekend I'll be skirting fleeces. In the mean time I have lowered the price of my eBooks from $19.95 to $14.95.

Will post some pictures tomorrow, but was actually able to spend some time outside today in the gardens, mostly picking up debris, limbs, and the like. Tomorrow it's supposed to be 62F here and if it's not too windy I will be uncovering the front gardens. Still lots to do, leaves and branches to be shredded, horse manure needs to be fetched for the compost bins, pots to be cleaned, seeds to be started, but I sure do LOVE spring time!

Made chicken pot pie for John tonight, he was in heaven!
1 pint chicken - dark meat
1 pound frozen mixed veggies thawed
4 medium sized potatoes peeled and cubed
black pepper ground
Mix the meat and veggies in a sauce pan if the meat isn't juicey add about a half cup of water. Heat to a boil and boil about three minutes, put a lid on the pan to keep the steam in. Season, to taste, with the spices a pinch of each will do.
If the mixture is super runny add a bit of corn or potato starch to a couple of tablespoons of water stir until well blended and then add to the veggie meat mix. Heat until it thickens.
To make the crust brown I coat it with some milk before baking using a pastry brush.
Put into your prepared pie crust cover the mixture with a pie crust round, crimp the sides. Bake at 375F for about 45 minutes or until bubbling.

I moved my mixed media bins to the shelves, who knew that having them more accessible would mean I'd actually use them! The crates hold various types of papers and constructed cloth for using in mixed media projects.
Another view, that's Deer Slayer on the table. I need to have John create a rack so that I can put the computer up next to the ceiling, won't go under the table too much stuff there already. Luckily the Gateway was is a rack server style unit and is meant to be flat not verticle!
