This and That Tuesday

This is what the sky looked like at 7:30 am this morning.

And yes, that white spot is the sun! The day got progressively worse.

But I braved the weather this evening and headed to the monthly meeting of Kuwait Textiles Art Association at the Sadu House.

An Indian designer was our presenter. We weren't allowed to take pictures of the clothes since they are one-of-a-kind originals, but I managed to get one photo.

I like the KTAA meetings because they are short and sweet. Some folks linger after for refreshments but I usually hightail it home.

Tomorrow nite is the biweekly Yarn and Fiber Group meeting. Knitting is on the agenda but I don't knit. Haven't decided if I will go or not.

I do know where I am going right now and that is straight to bed.

Hope you are having a terrific Tuesday and that all is well in your little corner of the world. Friendship blessings, Tammy

Reading your post I feel like I need to go put some lotion on my hands, it reminds me how dry they are.teehee. I love the picture of the hanging yarns, such gorgeous colors together and the shadows. Happy day. Diane

Dearest Tammy,

Hope your day will look better when you awake!
The Indian designer garments look like they used lots of silk... They always look so exotic and in your part of the world one can wear them. I feel like being out of place when trying to wear them here in the US.
Yes, Yarn & Fiber must have your interest, otherwise what will you attend it for? You'll know how to make up your mind about that (minor problem...).
Have a great day!

Wow--that's grey & dusty, my friend! I thought our foggy days were bad--you win, I think!

What a gorgeous building you have your gathering in--love the architecture! And your sneaky picture of the clothing is just beautiful!

Hope when you wake up, all is clear and bright!

No dust here but very cold..the kind that makes things crunch under your feet and the breath in the air.

HI TAMMY,
SO DIFFERENT FROM NJ, WE GET FOG SOMETIMES, BUT NO DUST.
HOPE IT CLEARS UP SOON.
SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE A GREAT JOB, I DON'T KNIT EITHER, JUST CROCHET, IT'S EASIER.
TAKE CARE, RIZZI

Hi Tammy: You are one brave woman. I am so sorry for the dust. I want to wish you and your family a blessed Christmas Season. Hugs, Martha

Tammy I will never complain about the wind whipping the snow around again. This must be hard to go out in, but it looks like you had a wonderful evening in spite of the weather.

That dust storm looks awful Tammy! You were brave to get out in it. Those are beautiful creations you shared.

Tammy,
First off, the holiday banner...Love the family photo! The boys are getting big!
I think that club sounds so interesting. Love the pictures you snuck. Wish we could see more. The yarn display for the fiber club is very cool.
I looked at your previous post. All that dust reminds me of the town my husband was born in. Lubbock TX. It's the dust bowl of the south for sure. He said their house always had a layer of dust on everything no matter how much his Mother cleaned. Love your little tree, hope the holidays are going well. Are you coming to the states at all?

That dust is looking awfully familiar. It is dusty to look at the sky here, but you can't tell it is dusty if you don't look at the sky. The wind feels good, and it does not seem to be keeping people inside.
The clothes you took a picture of are something else. I love that there are such interesting, talented people living in this area of the world. I am curious to see if you went to learn to knit tonight. Hope you got a good night's sleep!!

So dusty!! I saw a rather impressive - yet scary - picture on the TV news yesterday. So unbelievable!! Stay safe!

Hey chicky!! Yuck , all that dust.. I don't know how you put up with it. The sun is shining nice and bright as I type this. Has been the last few days. I am sitting in front of it , soaking it up. It is not too late to learn how to knit:)
Love ya!
Gwen

That first pic reminds me of the dust storm we had in October last year...I was sick with asthma for two months afterwards.

How sweet of you to 'sneak' a pic for us to see. :)

I LOVE that camel!

I knit and crochet....do you think you would ever try knitting? I think you'd be great at it.
