Wish I’d done it sooner

Today I girded my loins and ventured into that space that is laughingly designated “workroom” or “craftroom.” It has long needed a thorough tidying session and now that I have a new large workbench to put in there, it really has to be done with gusto. I need to throw out much of the stuff that I was deliberately hoarding, in order to make space for the new furniture.

So far I have:

  • CREATED:  a little more space in which to insinuate my bulk into the room rather than stand helplessly in the doorway and wonder where to plant my feet with safety.
  • FOUND: the long lost missing pin from my traditional Lazy Kate
  • FOUND: several missing items from a “Red” RAK parcel that came in during February
  • FOUND: the missing 28-80mm camera lens
  • REMINDED MYSELF: that I really do not need to buy any more yarn during my remaining lifespan.
  • SNEEZED: a lot
  • REDISCOVERED: the carpet behind the door
  • FOUND: the patch where a cat found relief when accidentally locked in
  • FOUND: rather (a lot) more spiders than my equilibrium can handle

Anybody need any used blue bags? How can I have purchased so much stuff in three years?

We shall be needing some low wind speeds at the weekend-  a large bonfire is indicated.

When I get to the stage of recreating a work space, I think I should do it in the mind set of a fibre artist – it is so rarely that I do anything with paper, paint, or ink these days that it seems foolish to lay out my space as though I do. It’s going to mean a lot of reworking.

It has been a busy day, not much time for anything. We walked the dog this morning but I took no photographs until I decided to take a few potshots in the village on our way back.

Van Nessa : Her Leak

Van Nessa : Her Leak

Home from Melle, we set about cleaning the van in preparation for going out again. At the moment we are hoping to go out for at least one night every week in continuing efforts to break the cats in (or down!) Mr Snail was cleaning the bathroom. Although we haven’t used the shower we had… Continue reading Van Nessa : Her Leak

August, 6-9th, 2019

Deeply disappointed by our early return from the Dordogne and buoyed up by slightly cooler weather we effected our plan to go out “little and often” in an attempt to train the cats for living in the new van.

    I’ve just thought of a use for all those blue bags – but I bet I’m way behind you! 🙂
