The Phoenicians were famous for their purple dye made from snails, so I thought it would be fun to have the girls dye some dresses purple. I'd been watching for snail dye for months, but it's been out of stock all that time, so we had to settle for regular clothing dye...we chose "Imperial Purple" because purple-dyed garments were so expensive back then that only royalty could afford them.

|Junebug drew a picture of herself.|
|Bluebird drew a picture of Monkeyboy|
and Grandma's new cat.
And that's it. Except for all the crazy churning out of sewing projects that Bluebird has accomplished this week. Excuse the pun, but that girl is a sewing machine! I've decided to allow her to start up her own blog showing her various projects because if I let her post about them here you will never read about anything else that happens in our family again. (There are no posts on her blog yet--that's a task scheduled for this upcoming weekend.)
