Total eclipse

Last Wednesday a total eclipse of the moon.
Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics said that at
21.20 we should be able to see a totally eclipsed
moon, which is asking a lot.   Especially as it
would be just above the horizon.

I didn't.  Cloudy skies.  Thursday night the moon was
 there in all it's glory, and orange to boot.   Boo hoo!

Enter a very visible Mr. Ben, down for a couple of
fun packed days, accompanied by his Daddy.

A dyeing workshop here on Saturday, in colour.
A really good day, despite the rain hammering on
the roof.    Dyed velvet and muslin for scarves,
and the odd bit of shibori going on as well.

It's been a busy time.   Now I have a week
to myself.  I'm looking forward to that.

The Tibetans believe that it is better not to watch eclipses, they transfer negative energies, they say. --
Beautiful blue piece!

Cloudy skies here too, so we also didn't see it. Eva made me feel better about that.

Eva, that's so enlightening, thank you. Can do without negative energies!
