Snow day

It was a beautiful snow day here. (Beautiful as long  as you didn’t have to go out in it!)

I’ve been putting off getting some mudcloth work done… so I used the day to play with the mud.  A variety of silk scarves were waiting patiently, having been washed earlier, and became the canvasses for today.  Used some orange, black and a mix of the two for a nice brown.

Now to let them sit and ‘cure’.  These may become items for the Guild’s Fall Sale.

Penny, I haven’t forgotten your request for a larger view of the red scrumbled vest.  I’m in a mulling over stage on the vest – what I really need is to see it on someone other than me in the mirror to see how it is fitting.  I have a feeling it will need a bigger person to wear it well.

As the vest sits, I pulled out the large billum (string bag) that I started in PNG. The tummy muscles don’t mind my spinning and plying now so I’ve been making a bit of progress on that.  Little bit by little bit.

And, I finally got around to ‘patching’ the holes in a couple pairs of handknit socks.  One pair had their heels reknit and the other pair got a ‘sole’ of felt to cover over the holes.  We’ll see how well they each hold up.

  1. Judy,

    Glad you are creating again. What a big UUGH about having to repair socks, but good news they were worn and kept feet warm.

    All the best good wishes.
