Things are lining up here as I work to get some traction in my life. After a good strategizing conversation with Lisa Call on Sunday night, I researched and ordered some silk batting. It feels absolutely exquisite, but I fear it may still provide more loft than I want the finished product to have. I want this cloth to be delicate, to move with the most gentle of gentle breezes. We’re still a ways away from that, though, mostly because I am in the throes of NaNoWriMo, spending most of my time penning 5k words each day (the word count for today is at 7858, ah were that possible every day!) through this-coming Sunday. Usually the goal is to write 1667 words a day (or 2k for an over achiever like me), but I’m dedicating to finishing early this year, so I can enjoy a guilt-free Thanksgiving break.
