I’m up to

Last night I hemmed six 45″x45″ play silks.
Thank heaven for selvage edges, for it was by their grace that I only had to hem 2 sides per square rather than four.
This is what my counter looks like tonight.

What’s not littered with empty Kool-aid packets is dribbled with multi-colored splotches.
My last silk, the green one, is in the dye bath now hopefully soaking up the final wisps of color suspended in the liquid.
It’s been a long week, we’ve had one activity or another every night and I’ve followed each up with a few hours of top secret Christmas Elvin work. I’m pooped, and I’ve got a long way to go. I’m not going to make a list here, that would just be discouraging. You’re just going to have to take my word for it.

By the way, I’m using this tutorial for the silk dying.
