nothing that an aquarium warmer can't solve

it's all about temperature. weather's hot, ai vat is being heated with my god sent aquarium heater and  the vat is rolling. very nice cotton yarn after three 1 min dips.

this one even looks better. thrilled with the blue
after 3 dips. more to come today.

 and also this one is being processed.
feels good to be so productive albeit the heat.
life is good.

more geekery

low tech, but much better that making bias tape by hand. bought the small tape maker because :

  1. it's too hot to be in the studio sewing. in this way i can pretend i'm sewing because i'm handling sewing tools.
  2. i bought 3 patterns that require bias tape finishings instead of facings. not all is escapism here.
  3. clover is a japanese company therefore i'm feeding my japanophilia. (^_^)
the weather forecast says it will cool off for a couple of days and then zoom back up.
have to  take advantage of the cool spell.
