Third Sunday in October.
ONE. The squirrels got into my acorn walnut dye soup while I was tidying the studio. Ok.
TWO. Still green here with the first hard frost expected tonight. So...
Hung a flag to help things along. Some October color. Old tie dyed silk scrap by Richard Carbin, like only Richard can do. If you need any vintage silk to dye, he's the man.... I met Richard though Glennis. So there you go. He is in Japan. She goes there often for her Silk Study Tours. On occasion you might find some old silk in her shop as well. Some folks were asking about a source for that. You can buy new silk of course but really I would rather support folks trying to make an honest living to support their families. And really there is nothing like old silk. To Dye for.
THREE. I just unrolled this and named it Feel Free. Naming things for me has a lot to do with the moment. I named it something else before, but today it's Feel Free. I started this one during a teaching series, so I will probably be able to find some old videos and stuff.
But right now, some last minute garden rescue is in order. The Man feels fine, I feel free and the camera issue has been resolved.
