I’m now full-on into the throes of a nasty cold – the sort that leaves you congested, unable to think, and unable to sleep because of the congestion. I would curl up with a cup of tea and a book, but am eyeing the deadline on Autumn Splendor with increasing trepidation (and in any case, am too congested to enjoy reading). So I’ve been continuing with my dye-work, a little bit at a time, as I have energy and time. Today I dyed the lighter colored panels for muslin #11, and tomorrow I will (hopefully) dye the dark panels.
Meanwhile, since I’m too stuffed-up to do anything complicated or delicate (like weaving), I’ve been cleaning the studio and printing out pattern pieces, producing a small sea of paper. Here is a photo partway through the process:
I’ve now printed all the pattern, facing, and lining pieces and will be assembling them tomorrow morning. If I have the energy to do more dyeing tomorrow, and don’t die of pneumonia or something before then, I’ll be able to start cutting and sewing the muslin on Monday.
