Sometimes Things Don't Turn Out Like I Thought They Would
Things don't always turn out the way I thought they would but sometimes the surprise you get is even better! Long ago, ok about 25 years ago, I had a dye called Lapis and it was a gorgeous blue with hints of purple. The company discontinued it and I finally used up all I had and was bummed. So yesterday I decided I needed a new purple and hunted up a recipe that sounded like it would give me the deep purple I was looking for and close to what the picture showed. So I followed the recipe and got - you guessed it Lapis! What the heck? This isn't even close to the purple I was looking for but what a joy to see it looked just like the Lapis of old. I made sure I wrote the recipe down in several places! Today I fooled around with the recipe till it looked like the purple I was going for and I'll find out tomorrow if it really is purple. I peeked in the container and it looks like the purple I was going for so I have my fingers crossed!
