Yesterday’s dyeing results. This is actually greener than it looks in the photo. I actually like this colour a lot and can see using it in distant hills or in churning oceans. Today I will be putting samples in my dye record binder.
My hanging system in progress. I will be giving the board another coat of polyurethane today.
I do think the jurors misunderstood the way I hang my rugs. I should have figured it out when the girl helping them went by with a 1″ wood dowel. Rug hookers never hang their rugs from wood, and certainly not a 1″ dowel! I hang my rugs from metal curtain rods, 1/2″ in diameter, to prevent sagging from the weight of the rug. Still, it is what it is. They told me what they expect to see and I am trying to comply. I will work on hubby and see if we can install a long wooden board on our wall to hang rugs from later. He is resistant to the idea of putting big holes in the wall.
I sort of managed to organize my greens by value. I actually ran out of room in the cupboard. I do not know how I had them all in there to begin with! I have a stack of swatches behind me in this photo that I did not have the heart to rip apart for value sorting. Today I am going to have to make a decision on them and store them up off the floor.
So those are my plans for today. Hope to actually fit in a bit of rug hooking. We will see. I notice my hooking chair has moved and it will be iffy getting it back into position for hooking. My back is not that great. I do not like this getting older business one bit!
