I’ve been a bit preoccupied with another project, so didn’t get anything done before Avis’ reminder Email. To save myself from the embarrassment of not having to show anything at all, I did manage to add a few lengths of thread in the last couple of days.
At least the biggest wedges are filled in now, so maybe we can approach the end of the big shell next time? To tame the very unruly thread, I did an experiment and slightly waxed a length of thread in the last full wedge. Thread immediately tamed, but unfortunately the sheen is gone as well, even though you can’t really see the difference in the photograph. I tried to take a close-up, but still coudn’t see the difference. So, back to the original unruly version it is.
