The post holiday weeks are fairly uneventful and cold, perfect for spending lots of hours in the studio sketching and quilting. I've been making my way through Serial as I piece quilts and work out some new ideas. The only day I've really spent outside was to dye a new batch of indigo cotton, the fabric steaming as it came out of the warm indigo vat into the chilly air. Alabama spring comes soon enough, so in the meantime I'm enjoying the focus the winter hibernation brings.
