It's hit the century mark of 100+ degrees and is holding there; looks like the cool temps are a thing of the past. I'll have to make do with what I was able to dye and discharge over the last few months. This is one of those OAK pieces that I hate to cut up and use. The white flare-like spots were created using glue as a resist, but I poured on so much dye that they mostly dissolved; the effect adds some texture so that's okay with me.

So, I had the great idea that upgrading to a new computer with more gb's and Windows 7 would make my life easier. Maybe it will eventually, but we didn't transfer anything from the old computer so everything is on an external drive and is a jumbled up mess. And my camera won't transfer the older shots on the disk to the computer. The Canon prefers to only transfer photos that are new. And, Windows 7 doesn't seem to like my favorite stand-by of Picture It; I do love PSE8, but sometimes Picture It was just easier to use. Oh, and my speakers aren't working . . . and so it goes. I'm trying to live by the following quote: Want a perfect day? Decide to have one. Sally Huss

Love the quote. I do think digital is cooler (this time of year when the temps are rising)!

I love this piece, the feeling of this piece is just as you say sunset or a red night sky with tons of stars. Very nice Gail.

The quote is right on and how I live. We are the only one's in control of our days and our destiny.

A fabulous fireworks piece! Love it! My heart goes out to you making the computer switch. It's not easy- but will be worth it in the end. (Really.) Love and hugs!
