the hand on this was so soft I had to do another burn test to convince myself it wasn’t silk!
Oh dear. It appears that I erased yesterday’s video thinking I had already uploaded it -well can’t go back so moving on.
I think you’ll find this interesting.
I know I did.
It will be quiet here Tuesday and Wednesday.
Going to refresh at the beach for an overnight camp out in the Volkswagen bus. Now that most everybody has gone back to school or back home.
Of course I’ll have some handwork to do and some books to read.
and one other thing I discovered-
that in original taiten, the gathering warp threads were waxed, adding I imagine, to their strength. much needed when gathering a whole bolt of cloth.
too hot. I think I’m dripping sweat on the ribbon. no blood or tears though
Before I left on vacation, I added some new indigo to the vat. It seemed to like that I was gone. Now, the vat is working very nicely.
Just a quickie video for today.
Shipping some orders. Dying more ribbon.
Sold one of the carry the moon bags. I really like those.
Have some more handwork that needs to get done so will also start on that this evening.
back in the swing of things.
