fortunately, this morning I took out a roll of the silk crêpe that I saved for the Japanese-American national Museum workshop in November.
my plan was to do a stitched Shibori piece on this fabric but in experimenting with it I have discovered it’s terribly difficult to stitch on crepe. even the lightweight crepe is hard to push the needle through.
so I will have to make another plan for that fabric.
and another plan for that workshop.
Well I think I forgot to upload yesterday’s video so I’ll do that now but also I did an update on the WordPress mobile application and it’s kind of buggy.
It’s making things difficult.
But moving on the last day or so has been all about working online and getting some blog posts done and some shop updates started.
I’m putting in place a reserve system for the large shawls as I can see that it could become problematic filling all the requests that I am getting for these pieces. Hopefully the reserve system will ease things a bit. It will also limit the number of pieces I can make to something reasonable without making myself crazy.
Also, people around me needing help that I can give them such as my friend who is opening a showroom in LA and is feeling overwhelmed. Spending time on the phone listening and offering some solutions. Hopefully my suggestions will simplify things for her.
So now I’m off to the studio to continue pole wrapping and dyeing for the day. Here’s yesterday’s video.
short and colorful today. still hot. mid nineties outside. probably 100 in here.
but gotta get these done.
too hot. I think I’m dripping sweat on the ribbon. no blood or tears though
