One cure for Summer Hyperactivity Disorder is to devote multi-hour chunks to a single project — go deep, get it to a logical stopping point before veering off to the next shiny object.
For months I’ve been planning to make a simple shirt from hand-dyed linen. I have the linen. I have the pattern. But my wheels have been spinning.
Good start: reorganized my work space to free up a work table. On it now is my experimental yard of linen, soaked in soda-ash solution, dried, and ironed.
Onward! Mixing Procion MX dyes involves consulting the books, color choices, chemistry, and math. Good exercises for the aging brain.
A couple hours got me a rainbow of colors. Enough for one afternoon.
Until tomorrow, wine poured.
