Equinox gifts

My second night in the warehouse this week because the workload is too heavy to venture far from the studio. But I'm still standing!
Far left: milkweed before real beating, center; milkweed bast fiber (before or after throwing it into the beater? I already forgot), right: milkweed seed silk paper. Lovely stuff. If I had been more diligent, I would have beaten more and used more formation aid but there was so little left and I just wanted to get it done, to make paper and not feel like a computer automaton, and have something nice to see in the morning. All harvested on the equinox!
