Now it’s time for the nitty-gritty.
But first — more kickstarter gratitude. I continue to be bowled over by the immediate and overwhelming response of my readers and friends. Twenty-two of you have given me $850!!!
I almost wish there was a way to receive funds without seeing how much each donor is giving (it wouldn’t work) because EVERY gift meant the world to me — and, in fact, sometimes a ‘small’ gift from someone feels HUGE because I have a sense of financial struggle out there. So, again — thanks!
Just booked a room in West Ashley. It’ll be my first airbnb experience. I’m a little hesitant about staying in a room in someone’s house, particularly because I’m not that chatty a person (ha!)… and because who knows about people, right?
I picked a convenient, very reasonably priced place with almost 50 positive reviews. But seriously? It was the picture of this guy’s dog and his backyard that clinched it! A sweet old hound and beautifully tended perennial beds — surely these indicators of character?
The folks at Sea Island Indigo are being super accommodating in terms of helping to coordinate rides out to Rebellion Farm, where two days of the event are being held. Given how many OTHER details they are managing right now, I especially appreciate this. It looks like I will be able to get by with a couple of cab and bus rides and no car rental at all.
Oh, and did I tell you they will be feeding us like queens?!
Eagerly awaiting the supply list.
Going back to 2012 dye pictures, I found this Soul Collage card. Funny, that a card titled ‘Dreamer’ features blue hands, huh?
Oh, and I just noticed that the sleeper in the background may be covered by a pieced denim coverlet — that’s one of the great things about Soul Collage — the discovering of things later.
Off to the pages. But not for long. It is also a Farm Share pick up day. Possibly a post office day (chocolate to Boulder). Have to pick up a script. And, there’s a quick, near doctor appt. Not much time for writing today, in other words. But thank goodness it is cooler. Yesterday was a beast of a day.
