I wanted to share a picture of the tote bag and baseball cap I ice dyed. I think they came out pretty good.
I started on one of those slouch bags you make out of a pillow case. I dyed the two white pillowcases and then cut the form out. Hahaha. Broke the thread on my sewing machine and could not see to rethread it! Daughter is coming by on her way home to thread it for me. I've had this Singer Golden Touch & Sew since around 1972 and it still works great - at least I think it does. My sewing days may be short lived if I can't figure out a way to thread the machine. I have one of those little wire thingys but it only works if you can see the eye of the needle. I may see if I can find a needle with a bigger eye. That might do the trick. Otherwise it is on to new project that do not involve sewing.
I ordered a counter top ice maker. I got tired of hauling bags of ice up and down stairs. It takes about 1/4 to 1/2 bag of ice per project. Depends on the amount of fabric I am dyeing. It has a return period so if it doesn't work out I can return it.
My sleep is better but not normal. I think the problem might be that my sleep/awake cycle has changed. I seem to be more on a 12 hour wake/sleep cycle instead of 16/8 cycle. Oh well, as long as I am mentally and physically happy, I guess it is all ok.
