such long days here - john's been under the weather so I've been going solo on studio production. so I'm more tired than usual - yesterday while I was taking a break from my large pile of sewing I made myself a large oblong pouch (10in. wide) from some linen I dipped in the indigo and dyed in pomegranate. I really like the grey of the linen - the colour is originally an oatmeal colour, seeing the quality of the dyeing on the linen makes me want to do more dyed pieces in linen, I like the texture - so more dyed bags in linen is on my list of things to do - there will be more indigo dyeing today - I ran out of drying space so I had to do it in two sessions. I really like how the dipped market totes turned out - they will be coming to vancouver with me, I hope I can squeeze more work in before I leave monday. I find the daily administration work and organization can take up so much of your time and before you know it the day is over.
