Good Morning

Here's my plan for the day so far.
First: finish waking up. I bought myself a new coffee cup yesterday--just because. So I will wake up with a smile on my face. Then I have class. It's week three of the Make Craft Your Business course. One of the women in this group does cyanotype. It's a traditional printing method which uses sunlight to develop the colouring agent. It makes the original blueprint. I love it. So I've picked out some openwork crochet to lend her. It will be fun to see how it prints.
Depending how much energy I have left at the end of the class, I might head down to Beautiful Silks. I've been thinking about my crochet flowers in the light of the realities of selling. I've figured out that the biggest component in the cost of what I make is my time. So I'm looking at using more really great materials so I can make the most of the time I put in. What could be better than silk? --hand-dyed by me! Last time I was there, they had some lovely white silk yarn in an 8-ply equivalent thickness. I expect to come home with some.
Beautiful Silks is just around the corner from Brunswick St Fitzroy and a street full of great cafe's. That would finish off the day just nicely.

What a beautiful cup, it sure would put a smile on my morning face too. :)
That little heart looks like it would make a cute coaster too.
I hope that the rest of your day went as well as the morning cuppa.
