I am thinking. A lot. The image depicts the colours I am thinking about. Actually I am also planning a different kind of material too. Upholstery woven of wool based on older upholstery. While I think I cut rags into strips, I sew and do a bit of book keeping. Practical things that have to be done and good to use the opportunity while the next piece is still unraveling itself in my head. Apart from this thinking I am preparing a short talk about the cashmere obtained from the Icelandic goats.
For the first time there will be an official Day of the Icelandic Goat on November 30th. There will be a few talks about different aspects concerning the Icelandic endangered goat in the National Museum of Iceland next Friday, i.e. tomorrow.
I have been mentioning this on Facebook and used the picture below of a bowing goat as bait. ;)
If you didn't know before I can tell you that there is a Weberstrasse site on facebook too. It contains more or less the same stuff as this blog. But there you can "like" stuff. The option here is to write a comment if you care to.
Work awaits. Take care until next blog.
