time and the weather

June 11, 2014

progress is slow and the garden keeps calling – loudly!

P1050028I let the foxglove self seed where it will

P1050035time to make a double batch of rhubarb muffins

P1050033I’m tempted to escape

but the weaving is also calling

P1040986using my Mother’s knitting bobbins to keep the silk threads from tangling

P1050034the inlay is so much fun I can’t seem to stop

P1050011 at last – the Icelandic fleece is spun

washed the 3lbs 5oz now weighs 2lbs 8oz – more stash!

P1050010old linen napkins soaked up the indigo

P1050036they were well used and are very fragile, with some small holes, but the handwork makes them worth saving

P1050038only two dips and this silk sample looks promising

P1050002do you think there is a message here?

    indigo musings. the VAT speaks! the inlay is terrific. and that old linen, i can (almost) feel it.

    surely the message says you’re doing fine, keep going.

    The message in the dye probably says, “take a nap!” You are so busy and productive! I love the look of the old linens in their new color–the indigo is beautiful.

      Kerry – linen and indigo are a perfect match. no time for a nap, wait till the winter!
      Alfia – yep! rhubarb muffins are delicious. I like good messages.
