It seems like forever since I have blogged, but there hasn't been much to show since I have been in Florida. I haven't done all the handwork that I thought I would be doing, more about that in another post, but I do have news to share.
They used another of my suns this morning on CBS Sunday Morning today after a segment about Test Kitchen, a program I have often watched. Fortunately I decided to check my emails before going to bed last night, after a long day out and company in the evening. And there was a lovely email from Jessica Frank, the person in charge of picking the suns, telling me that mine would be used for that segment. Of course I watched and recorded it, as I always do.
This is how it looked on the screen, cropped to fit the screen. Part of the segment was about a roasted carrot recipe, so this was quite appropriate, even if my carrots got chopped off.
This is the picture I sent them. It was an experiment in using natural dyes, such as blackberries, beets, tea, spinach and carrots. The only one that was really successful was turmeric, which gave me a brilliant yellow for the face. I enhanced the others with markers.
This is the fourth of my suns that they have used on the show. I sent them pictures of eight.
