Its all true, the boogie girl is real, and you've found her. She knits, sews, spins, does pottery and writes it all down in this blog.

It's all coming up tan.
I can't seem to think of any other color than tan at this point. You may have thought it was one sweater and one pair of socks. Really how bad can that be? I only wish the tan stopped there. I think tan has come to take over my life. I'm obsessed with tan.
As I look at projects I want to do in the future I'm thinking of a heathered tan shawl, a tan sweater for the babe, a variegated tan pair of socks for mom, a tan hat for dad, a cotton tan tank top for me.
I've been doing a little clothing window shopping and I'm beginning to think the tan stuff looks good. Not black or red like I usually go for, tan. Tan pants, tan tops, tan bags, tan shoes. Well, not the tan shoes, I haven't gotten that far into the tan sickness. I'm wondering if I'll be able to escape. All I can think is tan.
I used to have dreams in color, now they are all sepia. That's tan if you didn't know. I was thinking of painting the baby's room in tan and sage green. When I go to dye wool I keep having mishaps and the wool comes out in shades of tan.
Tan diddy tan, tan, tan.
Do you remember the Tootsie roll song?
Whatever it is I think I see.....?
This would be my version, sing along if you dare.
The world looks mighty tan to me
'cause tan and sepia are all I see
Whatever it is
I think I see
Becomes a thing of tan
Do you know what color a Tootsie roll is?
