new indigo in the shop this morning
i'm dyeing some hemp canvas today along the way to becoming black fabric. it's a process which takes several days and several dye baths and several plant and mineral materials to come about.
i'm also pondering the heating situation here where i live. the woodstove is too small to heat even the 2 rooms we live in. and the size requires me to wake up a few times a night to add more wood which isn't fun. part of the problem is also the fact that the place is poorly insulated so i may be able to rectify that a bit before winter really sets in. there is an alternate heat source of a propane fueled unit but i don't like using it for multiple reasons. so anyway, i ponder.
and i did do some solid work here recently, aesthetically speaking, and i will share some pictures soon but i'm needing to focus on work and other projects before..
