A Saturday Afternoon

I slept in this morning, just can't seem to pull myself out of bed these days. I went up to the studio and turned on all the little heaters but never could get the place to warm up. Set up a pot of dye which always helps and I dyed some wool and silk a lovely shade of indigo. I thought that I was dyeing some silk flags but they turned out to be cotton so the acid dye bath didn't do much to them. Will give it a try again next week with the right dye. It is supposed to snow tonight so I won't even try to go to the trailer tomorrow. I did make a cool scarf, a lattice scarf. I expected it to shrink alot more width wise that it did, it did string about 1/2 foot length wise. Colors are nice, will post it here when it is dry and I can get photos. It is definitely an eclectic piece.

I looked into the Indie show for Atlanta this summer. They want $275 a booth which you can share with one person. I am thinking this is a way too high a price for me. I did send in all the info for the vineyard show and really hope I get into that one. It is a 2 days show and I have decided for once not to share the booth with anyone, to make it or break it on my own. Now I just need to get judged into the show. Keep fingers crossed for me.

Hi Libby, I'll keep fingers cross for you.
I really like your stories, I think, this kind of stories can make our blog really "alive"... It's exciting to see real people, not only felted stuff (that we can see also in shops).
I've seen your comment to the previous post, but I repeat again, that it would be great to see photos, too!
Don't forget, that all crafters are "visual" type of personalities! They don't understand ;) plain text...
Have a nice day,
Olga

Thanks Olga, I am having a problem uploading my own pictures into the Felting Team blog. So far the only photo I have gotten to come up wash the nuno skirt

Yes, posts like this do keep the blog alive. Photos can be a problem, though. Much easier if you can do it via draft blogger - email or convo if I can help on this score.
