Dork with a capital D

Good Afternoon!
Such a gloomy windy day here today. 
 We are awaiting the rain that is on it's way for the next 3 days.

Ever have days where you get up and then things happen and you wish you would have stayed in bed?
Well, my day seems to be going in that direction.  
First, I emptied a pot of hot wool and water into a bucket and was trying to be careful but the wool slipped out a little faster than expected and splashed the hot water on my right leg and left foot.  I may or may not have a small burn on my foot.

I've been doing lots of drawing for the shop and shows we have coming up but yesterday I ran out of linen so decided to dye wool today.

I have been in the kitchen the whole time while the pots are stewing and then I heard this noise.  YEP, one the pots boiled over.  Pretty sure the back of my stove in now a blueish purple color.  Really?

Update on my projects from the last post.

I gave this heart to mom for Valentine's Day.
 I used scraps and a size 9 cut then stuffed it with Lavender.  I secretly stuck it in her basket that she uses for hooking.  It took a couple of days but she finally saw it!

This is a project I started last April.  All I have left for the most part is the background.
Here is the D for Dork part.
I dyed the background and only dyed 1/2 yd.
  WHY?  I have no idea.  
Now I have to try and figure out what I did and match the wool.

And this project. 
 I was only given a small amount of the faded red wool and I have decided to do the entire flag in that red.
The problem is I have no idea what the wool is.  I have tried just about every color combination that I can think of.  
It's a tan yet red color.
So, as of right now this project is on hold until I can figure out the dye for the red.
I'm not really sure today is the day to work on that.

That's my update folks.
Nothing spectacular to speak of.......just a lot of dorkness going on at my house. ;)
