Back to the Blues

Originally uploaded by SOFennell

When the temperatures are more spring than winter and a customer order calls, well then, it’s back to the blues.

If the sun had come out, it would have been near perfect. The vat was a bit finicky and it may have been simply that it really is not the season. It worked though. I’ll have to make adjustments in the studio so that I can finish the job. Temps are due to drop and rain is also in the forecast. That will make a difference.

Some affirming news: there are only a few jeans left at Barney’s (that is to say, “those” jeans). I was pleased to hear it, needless to say.

Come to think of it, I know of a ‘certain’ Etsy shop that has some pretty nifty little scarves that have been lovingly hand-dipped in indigo. Shipping is free during the holiday season (now, there’s a wee hint!).

      I would be very interested! I will have some cold weather work upcoming. Usually, I bundle up and work fast.
      Thank you for the link. I don’t think I’ve run across these articles – intriguing stuff to read and ponder.
