The last few days have been pretty busy at work, and I’ve been getting home mentally exhausted. Nonetheless, I’ve gotten quite a bit done on Phoenix Rising. I’ve gathered twenty yards (!) of organza ruffle for the skirt, and put on an organza overskirt. The crinoline for the muslin is now complete, and I’m starting to map out the torso colors:
These are purely preliminary; I’m not at all happy with the lower tier of the torso (which will be red). I think it needs to echo the asymmetry in the orange and yellow, not just follow the orange edge slavishly down. So many adjustments are in order! I expect to fiddle with this for the rest of the week.
I also need to dye some more muslin, in various shades of yellow, yellow-orange, and red. So there is a lot to do! But I am hoping/expecting to finish laying out the visual design this weekend, finishing the first muslin.
Meanwhile, the Pikes Peak Weavers Guild exhibit Woven Together: Firestorm is about to open, and I am pleased to say that my In the Inferno: Firebirds! scarf will be in it! So if you are in the area, please stop by (and I’d love a report!):
Off to work! Things there are marvelously exciting, if exhausting, so all in all, it’s been a wonderful week, at least so far.
