This Week

There is no letting up of this winter's cold temprature and I've been sticking to doing things in the kitchen, the living room or the studio. My stash room clean up hasn't progressed, but I can't stand to be in the office to stay on the computer, either. So I've been reducing my stash by weaving! Imagine that!

Ben built these shelves in 2000 for yarns only so they were never reinforced for books and the numerous sketchbooks I've accumulated. Either we need to reinforce it now, or dismantle and rebuild, and we've been thinking out loud our options. I've always wanted the shelves under that tiny window so this may be the chance, but inexpensive/quick vs. not-expensive/pretty has been on my mind. It's been too cold to paint anything anyway, so I'm not rushed, but I am dismayed there is obstacles in every step of putting our house back into order. I'm feeling like President Obama; it took a few years for our house/garden to get this messy, so I can't fix it overnight. &^%$!!!

  1. But you'll lose two whole shelves if they are shifted under the window!

  2. No, I gain a wee bit because it'd be wider. Trust me, we measured everything we can all over.

  3. Whatever you do don't leave yourself with not enough shelf space. I have shelves in every possible space and I'm still worried that there's not going to be enough room.

  4. If you are like me, I never can reach the top shelf anyway so I lose that shelf to things I never really use.

    Did you leave facebook?

    I was wondering what your weather is like right now, is it like fall or deep into winter?

  5. Carol, I agree completely, but I was under the impression I should reduce my stash (by using them quickly) and prettifying my room.

    Dana, cold cold and cold, with a bit of gusts here and rain there.

  6. As I head downstairs to my pig sty of a studio I was wondering what was more important, a pretty room or the actual weaving. I'm for the weaving. When I sit at the loom I don't see any of a chaos around me. Just a thought on this cold bleak wet morning!

  7. Oh, we're not even talking about my downstairs just yet. But I can't think or restful unless I am in a tidy surrounding... That's why I've been better at cooking since summer - it's tidy, not exactly pretty, but much prettier than it was the first 12 years in this house!

  8. Meg, supposing you are getting lots of use out of your new stove then! Enjoy!
