You know how every once in a while all the things you want to do cause you to start feeling a bit overwhelmed? For me that seems to happen when I still have fabrics from the previous week that haven’t been ironed and put in the shop and I’ve just dyed more fabric that will be ready to be ironed in a couple of days.
Today is that day.
Here’s the fabric from last week (and a few pieces from the week before. These have to get ironed and posted today.
Because these will be ready for ironing Sunday.
Tomorrow and Saturday I’ll be teaching the new Innova owners at The Longarm Network. I love teaching that class. Everyone is so excited to be buying a new longarm but they also feel a bit overwhelmed. My job is to give them everything they need to start quilting without stress. In return I get to hang out with quilters for 2 days.
I put the glass slabs from yesterday into the kiln. Firing pieces that thick requires a high temperature of about 1600 and the whole program takes about 16 hours to get the glass cooled down enough to open the kiln and see what I have. As I’m writing this the temperature is down to about 700. Tomorrow I’ll share what these slabs look like and I’ll load in another one.
