I feel like I have spent the entire day under water. I have been dyeing and rinsing all day, which is always wet work, but the weather has been so wild that even in the shelter of our under cover area, I have been wet. I hung some velvet in our usual place, but the wind was blowing the rain in almost horizontally and I got wet hanging it up, so that was the end of that idea. Finally giving up on waiting for the weather to clear, I went to the post office and the bank, changed in to dry clothes, but had to get petrol, so two minutes after being dry, I was again soaked. I hope everyone else out there is keeping dry and warm and most particularly safe. The radio has been reporting accidents all over the place and trees down to boot.
Well, my velvets are all dyed, but they have no chance of getting dry today. 22 colourways dyed with an average of about 3 metres in each. The photo below shows 20 of the 22 colours soaking and setting.
What a day. Tomorrow is supposed to be a bit better.
