Last Wednesday our instructor moved us on from drawing with charcoal to painting with it in the form of sumi-e ink. We spent the three-hour class period practicing the use of the ink, how to hold the brush and how to make brush strokes. And then there was clean-up! I think it's during the chaos of cleaning up our materials and moving tables and chairs that I picked up my cold. Rest and Alka-Seltzer Plus have done wonders for my symptoms and I'm looking forward to going to class today where we'll finish up this module. Wednesday we start something new.
Last week before I got hit with the cold I manged to get this warp wound for two more Campbell tartan scarves. I've sold the three I've made and am optimistic that I can sell another one next month. This will be my fourth year as a vendor in this event and it will be the first held at the Deschutes County Fair Grounds which I think will improve foot traffic greatly.
I talked to Webs about a half hour ago and the Stone Green yarn that I'm waiting on is going to ship tomorrow and will be here sometime next week. I'll focus on the scarves and be ready to do some blue/green towels, something I am sorely lacking in my inventory. Other than having to continue living with this sore foot, I think it will all be good. I'm glad to be able to keep busy as we are in the middle of a cold gray streak.
