Yellow things

For Project Yellow
This morn when going through some of the blogs I visit, I came across Anna Carson's Yellow Project while visiting Strolling Through Georgia. I immediately thought of my quilts because lately I seem to always insert quite a bit of yellow. The above is my own quilt, River of Light. It is something that I came up with--sort of own my own with a little inspiration from a couple sources. I started it probably the last part of 2004 or early 2005 when I was still working, and finished it in 2006.
Then today I happened to finally notice that I do have some daffodils blooming...I have two blooms. I am not sure if the rest are going to bloom or not. These are two different blooms, with the bottom bloom that was not fully open really being cropped.

Of course I cannot forget the golden yellow of ginseng in the fall...you have to see it in person to appreciate it.
And of course, when I think of yellow, I think of Tidy Cat cat litter--with four cats in the house I go through quite a bit of this stuff. I am so glad I have a basement:-)

A new use for broken down shopping carts

A new use for broken down shopping carts.

Roger did dig this shopping cart out of the dump. He had to make it sturdy enough to hold this gas forge. He built the gas forge from 10 inch pipe--not sure of the particulars. He got the plans off the internet...it uses propane to heat with. With it being on this cart it is easy for him to roll it outside while it is being fired, and does not have to wait for it to cool down to bring it back in once he is done with firing it.

It is lined with Kao-wool--at least I think that is what it was called. The bottom where he lays the knive blades to be tempered is lined with fire brick.
