|welllll...i feel like i have been an awful bloggerette, but i have been really exhausted lately and have been doing practically nothing. ya hear me? nothing! i received the babe electric...the bobbins are the size of a roll of paper towels, just to give you an idea...big! the thing is really really powerful, in fact that is the hardest thing about it, to harness the power and use it for good, not evil, savvy? so here she is, amidst the disgusting mayhem that is my studio at the moment...|
there are orders sitting in the middle there, ready to go, and fiber and crap everywhere. bad bad bad messy mayhem. as messy as i am, i hate it when my studio gets like that and it is really hard to control, i just don't know how to keep it organized. i am no good at organizing anything.
i did some dyeing at 5 am because i couldn't sleep and that came out all crappy, too. it is for a special order and i am just having a really hard time with it. i have a jar of royal purple dye from little barn from a while ago, and like everything they do, it is sucky. while it is really strong, it is also very undpredictable. it is the only plum purple that i have, so i use it a lot, but it does really strange things, like leaves salmon colored spots on the fiber. i don't know what else it could be so consistently, but it really pisses me off.
i need to get work done, so off i go. i just wanted to check in and say hi. i plan to update the spinning fiber section on luxe to-morrow around dinner and some yarns this week, i just need to get caught up...
