a Devastating Blow

I will not say that your mulberry-trees are dead, but I am afraid they are not alive.

- Jane Austen's Letters (1811-05-31)

The same is to be said for my shawl/scarf. My long beautiful shawl scarf that took hours and hours to make. I've mentioned it before, the shawl that had the unfortunate incident of losing it's colour when I soaked it before wet-blocking . Well last night I attempted to dye it, hoping to save it by putting a little colour back into it's heart. Not so.

It's too fresh, I don't think I can talk about it yet.

I will not say that it is dead, but I am afraid it is not, nor ever will be alive.

excuse me while I go cry now.
