coming off hiatus

I haven’t done much dye work lately due to a nasty cold I picked up — got sick around June 8 and I’m still coughing “residually” now. It was a real energy killer because it was so hard to get any sleep with that cough. I did manage to make a few pieces of jewelry… nice to have a hobby that can be done whilst half-reclined on one’s couch.

Of course this means I’m behind on dye work for my next vending opportunity — Isidora Bushkovski will be teaching here in town at the end of July, and I’ve got a sales table. I need to make blue and “fire” veils madly since I was cleaned out of those in LaCrosse in April. I’m not going to try to both vend and take the workshop this year… it’s just so hard to do that. Not to mention it means I have to have my husband’s help… he’s incredibly sweet about helping me, but I know he has other things to do with his time.

Well, since time is at a premium, it’s time to try out those Colorhue “instant set” dyes. It’s just me and the shibori pole in my spare time for a week or two… wish me luck.

    I can't wait to see what you bring! I bought the Purple Tiger at last year's workshop, and that veil and I have been fast friends ever since!-Amber-
