I felt despair many times during the process, and yesterday as I spent a good five hours in the studio I had a breakthrough. Suddenly the threading was finished and I'm ready to wind the warp on. I had preserved and soon I'll be weaving and see my vision come to cloth.

I've been thinking a lot about time lately. I feel like I don't have enough this semester and I'm constantly feeling hassled by the lack of it. Each day there are at least two places that I should be - in my studio and at school in the studio. There is the constant demand to work and there are deadlines attached to everything. I love my work, but the time aspect is making my nuts.
I have a critique in less than two weeks. I've been warping my loom at school for at least two weeks. It should not have taken me this long, but I lacked time to put more hours into school. Something always came up to prevent me from going in on my non class days. I worked the three hours between classes on the loom, worked each break I got and still I was no closer to actually weaving. It was maddening. I thought about compromising my design and clipping out threads to make my warp smaller, but I threaded on. And on. And on.
