A little here and there

Repurposing old art to serve my inability to stop making hanji dresses! Endless delight. If my eyes and fingers held up longer, I'd stay up and sew and sew and sew.
Plus newer pieces of suminagashi tests.
This has been in the works for a while but subject to weather, completely. The good news from PT is that I am to take two weeks away to take care of myself on my own! On Wednesday, I gave a lecture to the Rowfant Club, which was received so heartily that I was somewhat surprised (it's not always easy to stay awake on hump day after dinner and drinks). It was a pleasure, though, and I got to see wonderful things on the brief tour of the buildings when I arrived. Even better: Dard Hunter was a member and they own all of his books! So I will get to spend time with at least one particular book to do some nice quiet research with volumes that are usually in special collections that are far away from me.

What else? Hand Papermaking's auction ends tomorrow, and there are still so many chances to get rare books, special papers, artifacts, studio time, subscriptions, and more!

Also, to support the Textile Society of America's scholarships (they have someone willing to match $10K raised in the next month!), click here.
