Shop mini-update has been accomplished! Check it out for new bathmats. Obviously I'm still working toward decent pictures, but I did get good enough sun to get the job done. Meanwhile, I finished a whole tea towel in less than 24 hours, including sleeping.
I feel good about finishing this piece quickly. I have a tendency to dilly-dally on pieces. Not that it isn't good to be careful, but sometimes you have to simply move forward. If you wait too long, you lose the energy of the thing and it never gets finished.
And it always helps to have a good helper.
Nothing beats a good dog sleeping on my handmade housewares.
