If I taught a workshop/seminars at ANWG '19 would you be interested?

Working From the Stash


I've been trying really hard to work only from my stash and not buy more yarn.  Unfortunately I am running out of the colours I want to use!  It isn't that I don't have yarn - they just aren't the right colours.  :(

But I wound this warp today and have a blue/pink one ready to wind tomorrow.  Not sure I'll beam the warp tonight as I've put in a pretty full day already.  It was just that much of it wasn't weaving.

The fabric for the designer and the proposed article for Handwoven are both in the mail.  My accountant is open this week so I'll drop my papers off to her tomorrow, and file my sales tax form.

Other than packing, and maybe collating AGY:Rayon, that's about it for the stuff that I really wanted to do before I left.  So I feel able to just go ahead and enjoy playing with colour with these towel warps.  It's actually been good to force myself to only work from the stash because I have wound up using some combinations I wouldn't have used if I'd had different coloiurs readily to hand.

And now it's confession time.  I am also drawing up a rather large order of yarn for AGY: Linen and Hemp.  No doubt I'll toss a few of the colours I'd rather be working with into the mix.  So, for all the stash reduction I've accomplished I will be growing it even larger than what I've used up....

SABLE?? Is this a Laura thing, cuz I think I do too.

Where do you get your Hemp yarn? I think people would like it here.

Stash Acquired Beyond Life Expectancy and I think it's a fibre person things not just a Laura thing. :)

I'm thinking of bringing in the hemp yarn and reselling it. More on that when I get home from the trip.

cheers,
Laura

Hi, my name is Klara and I suffer from SABLE, as well. And I can't do anything about it because my sheep and angora goats must be shorn and my angora rabbits groomed. But why do I have these two huge boxes of fabrics?? And the big pile of leather????
