Taking a break today. Tomorrow I am attending a workshop and today I am preparing for it.
I have had a request to upload a video on how to finish a rug. I need to finish “True Love” and play with taking videos with my camera before I do anything like that. Then there’s going to have to be some splicing before uploading it! My, so much to learn in this business.
Friends were over the other day for a Bible study. They commented on my wonderful stash and asked if I had dyed the fabric myself. I told them yes, most of it, and explained a bit about the dyeing process to them.
I spend about 2 hours to dye each of the transitional (6 value) swatches I show here on the blog. I have dyed 46 formulas from Formation of New Formulae so far, and have 62 left to go. That works out to 124 hours of dyeing left to do. I can only do about 2 dye days a week. And my back, shoulder and feet can only take 6 hours of dyeing a day. So that’s 12 hours a week. Means I should be done in 21 dye days, or 11 weeks…assuming I get my 2 dye days in a week.
I might just back down to one dye day and use the other day for rug hooking. Sounds like a plan. I do have all year to finish this after all.
