Back on the Floor Loom & DragonCon

I've started back on the floor loom finally. I'm still having some pain in my calf that I don't think should be there so it's slow going. I'll be making an appointment soon to talk with my doctor about it. I'm thinking I may need another sonogram to see if the blood clot has broken up completely or not.

I'm also working on a crochet project for class. It's supposed to be a filet crochet curtain for my dining area to match the table runner, but I think I'm making it too long. I'll probably start over and cut off one row of the design. I need to start on two more projects as well and finish up my class notebook. I have until the end of November to complete everything.

I'm also starting a new class in a couple of weeks, Crafts and Art History. Looks like we'll be doing some pottery and papermaking and other crafts as well.

Over the Labor Day weekend, I'll be at DragonCon in Atlanta, Georgia. I'll be doing two one hour panels on Bryce for DAZ and helping out at the Art on Demand booth. I'm really looking forward to this as I've never been to DragonCon and wasn't able to go to SIGGRAPH for DAZ because I didn't have enough vacation days saved up since my hospital stay.

I also purchased an ostrich egg from The Ukrainian Gift Shop ( and am making up new dye jars today. I'm short on some of the dyes so ordered more of those as well. I'd forgotten how messy making the dyes was and my hands now look like a painter's cloth. They'll take a few days to slough off the skin that is dyed so until then I'll just have to walk around with dyed hands. I'm used to it though so tend to ignore it but I do get some odd stares from people. I'll start out doing some chicken and goose eggs in order to get back into it before even attempting to start on the ostrich egg.

That's it for now.

Shorah Y'all!
