I try to do 2 hours a night during the week, and 10 hours each weekend on weaving and production.
That's a part time job. I'm not feeling quite so stressed and tired since I quit my other part time job being a janitor. Only thing I miss is the paycheck, as small as it was. (By the way, I also have a full time day job...)
Working with denim.
I try to have my set up so I have to get up and down at a minimum. Tub right next to me, a bucket to put strings and trim in, a catch box behind and a finish box on my left. When I'm sewing the bucket is right by the mix bucket, and gets moved to where you see it when I'm trimming and clipping apart. Plus a tv and vcr. I went thru 3 movies today.
And here's a box of strips ready to weave with. This is a pretty good size box and I've got it filled pretty compactly. Another box about 1/2 full is also done as of tonite.
Would you believe I haven't even started ripping up the jeans from last weekends rough rip frenzy? These are all strips that were left over from the last time I did blue jean rugs. I ran out of warp before I ran out of jeans!
I'm working these days in my lower level/basement. It's not a true basement, only a little ways into the ground and unfinished.
It's hard to enjoy it, tho. Because I know these warmer days are fleeting...
