The studio smells of birch. Dried birch-leaves that I use to dye the warp with. Very exciting. Don't really know what the excitement is about, it is just dyeing thread. But the smell is so good and the colour so nice. Nothing really spectacular, just nice.
I am still collecting green rags for the next rag rug that I will weave around February, I hope.
But the warp being prepared in the loom now is a finer one for a special assignment. I very seldom do special assignments but this one has a long history involving other weaving.
