Today is October 1. I spent the day doing extra laundry. You know what “extra” laundry is, don’t you? It’s the stuff you don’t do every week…the extra stuff…sheets I cover my table with at shows and the thin blanket I use to cover the floor of the van when I’m loading things. Then I cleaned both of the ceiling fans that get so much use in the summer, and dusted all the wood chairs in the kitchen. I washed all of the used shower curtains that I use to wrap up dye painted cloth for batching. I will need them for a painting class next week, so washed all of them and hung on clothesline. I changed and washed bed sheets and am defrosting the freezer, a job that is badly needed. Is anyone tired yet? I also ran the vacuum. The morning was cool and wintery looking so I made a small pot of creamy potato soup. I feel like I got a lot of needed things done today. With the number of shows I have been working, I have not paid attention to doing anything extra on the homefront.
Yesterday I screened some cloth and tomorrow I will immerse myself in some immersion dyeing…I need some yardage of chartreuse, eggplant, forest green, and perhaps some citrus yellow. Saturday I go to Evansville to teach a jacket class.
Note: I actually did write this on October 1…it just didn’t get posted til this morning!
