Weld & Shoulder progress

28 May

My weld and madder root are close to harvest, both for color and seeds. Below is a photo of the tiny weld blooms.

I did end up with shoulder surgery on May 8th. My bicep head tendon was partially torn and needed stitches and some shoulder spurs had to be removed. Fascinating! Both combined to create pain and slow me down on the dye front. I’m out of lifting action until Aug at least.

In the meantime I’m pursuing time at the loom with some light short term weaving and designing for some rugs. I’ll be ready to create once my arm recuperates !

But I’ll need to be very nice to my hubby so I can run this weld seed dye pot soon!
