TdF Day 20

I didn’t get to my slightly-more ambitious plan of working that Jacob that’s still taking up space in the fiber closet, but if I had picked that instead of the silk to work on, I probably would have gotten a good chunk of it done. But gosh I love that silk. It’s going to be stunning when it’s all done.
