Chrysanthemum Tea

This is another painting in my Tea Steam Dreams series. It is 5 x 7 inches and is listed on Etsy if you are interested.

I also just listed a bunch more cool craft books on eBay. There are some good books if you are interested in needlework, dragons, embellished dolls, etc. Also I've listed some more Japanese craft books.

Yesterday was so beautiful, sunny and lovely. Every once in a while we get a few days like this in February, which is probably the only think that keeps most of us in Seattle going. I think I am going to go to the park with a book and my knitting soon. I wish I felt better because I kind of want to make some sort of social plans but I've felt fairly poorly for I think 3 weeks now? Fortunately it's auto-immune so I can't give it to anyone else but it keeps me laid up. Oh well, at least I've got a nice park 5 blocks away and later this afternoon my balcony will get some sun. I like to toss my sheep skin out there and read. It's kind of tiny so I have not got any chairs out there but a sheep skin is good padding. The smell of wool and lanolin make me feel kind of nostalgic because I grew up on a sheep farm on Vashon Island, it's so beautiful out there.

Sorry to hear that you have not been feeling so well Megan. Have some of that chrysanthemum tea! I think I will. It has been quite a while since I brewed any up, but your lovely painting just makes me want to have some this morning.
