Yup - I just ordered 5250 meters of silk wrapped purl for the Harmony with Nature Casket class that I expect to start offering next year as well as sending over pictures of the piece in process to show the hard workers at the purling machine who make the threads! I heard that the purling machine is 'open' at the moment and so I decided to get it busy again before someone else claims the time.
That's a lot of silk purl and it will take a LONG time to make it.
I will get back to the robot story soonish. I am under the gun at the moment stitching to get ahead on lessons while I am gone as well as packaging items for a new frostings box with my teen summer labor AND getting ready to disappear on vacation for weeks. So I expect to blog during vacation when I am in down moments.
