Full Steam Ahead!

For those following this page, which currently there doesn’t seem to be many, you may have noticed I have been adding as I go to the Shibori pages for the second attempt at shibori dying I am currently working on. I am still tweaking and adding to the presentation online and have yet to do final wash and iron out of the pieces to do the final photos for the series. I am thinking a trip to the laundromat will be in order for the rigorous washing. 

Also, I am going to be making a class information page to host all the handouts for the A & S Classes I will teach or have taught.

Then in the next few days, I will be gathering my thoughts & notes to complete my historical documentation of Glass Bead making and Shibori dying (which is a challenge in of itself as I do not know Japanese).

I hope the New Year has been kind to you all and that you are all able to work on the projects near and dear to your heart.

A&S is coming!

Well, the new year has started with some bumps in the road. However, I find myself grateful and looking forward to the year to come. The Second day of the New Year was spent experimenting with Shibori dying techniques then off to talk to MOAS of the Canton I support. The Sixth I spent at the Baronial A&S day learning more about Japanese garb and how to improve my SCA Resume, (which got updated immediately). 

I spent the remainder of Saturday sorting, editing and uploading the initial photos taken on the Second to document my journey discovery Shibori techniques, old and new. The seventh I plan to photograph, open, photograph, rinse, and dry the second’s shibori with a final photography session when they are dry. Gaming and sewing might occur too… *innocent smiley face* I am planning and preparing to have open displays at Kingdom A & S for myself and my Scribal household. A lot to do and not so much time, phew!
