Sunrise Lodge Fiber Studio will be closed from noon July 2nd to Saturday July 7th.....kind of. :) As much as I try, the work comes with me. Not that I really consider the part that comes with me work. I have set goals for the studio since last week was not a full production week. Before the start of vacation, all items must be off of all looms, hand washed, labeled, inventoried. Also the studio has to be cleaned from top to bottom........I hate an unorganized studio and I certainly do not want to come back to excessive dust:) Fortunately, only two looms had projects on them and as of last night, they were both empty. The purple towels have been completed and I will be posting the finished pictures once they have been hemmed and washed. The waffle weave scarves came off of the loom last night. They are beautiful and have a ton of character. Here are some updated photos which were taken before they were hand washed.
The second picture is taken slightly from the side so that way you can see how 'flat' the material is prior to the wet finish. Each tassel was treated with a fray block and they are currently hanging on a rack to dry......we will post new finished pictures soon!!!
There is little more that I like than receiving something in the mail. I have been waiting for some fiber to come back from Wooly Knob Fiber Mill and I got it on Monday. Just like a little kid, I ran into the post office with my son tucked under my arm like a clutch waving the pick up card in the air. (I'm thankful for my son's sense of humor and ability to handle my excitement.) The postmaster was also eagerly awaiting the package since we had stopped in for the past three days to check. When I opened the box I could smell that wonderful smell. I don't know how they do it but, they have the best smelling roving ever!!! And.......they do the absolute best job:)
I have already started to spin the white for the upcomming line of baby booties in hand spun alpaca. Well, I'm off to the task of updating the website:) Until next time!!!
