bigalice is taking a short break.
I intended to start dyeing again this year. However, Nature has her own plans. You might have heard about the terrible drought that California is having this year. Dyeing requires water, and I cannot in good conscience restart a water-hungry business when reservoirs are running dry. I don't want to add to an already strained load.
I have the luxury of doing this since I have a day job that is my primary income. I'm well aware that others don't always have this, so I'm saving the water for them. I hope that the weather patterns return more moisture to us and I can start again soon, as I'm itching to dye the new palette of colors I've discovered here.
Thanks, Big Alice.
