First, the eye candy:
After a frantic day and a half of winding, beaming, threading, and sleying, the new warp is on the loom. Or rather, it was on the loom, which is now disassembled and in the back of my Prius. I will make the 4-hour drive to AVL later today. I plan to stop on the way to talk to Sharon and strategize the cutting and sewing of the jacket. Since I don’t have the loom this week, it’s the perfect time to focus on sewing, and that’s precisely what I plan to do. (Also dyeing, quilting, and fabric manipulation, in between cleaning the house, which Mike asked me to help with. I admit it has been months since I did any vacuuming!) I’m hoping to get the outer shell completed, at least.
And since I don’t have much to report beyond that, a little more eye candy:
Yep, spring is here and doing its thing, right here in the Bay Area.
