Moving Ahead, Hopefully!

The "plaster guy" was here last night until 10 pm fixing the walls where the new shelving will be installed. Another mess to clean up!!!! Will it ever be done?

I learned that the "plaster guy" and his uncle were the original builders of this house 10 years ago. Small world, especially in Plymouth! He approved of our additions!

The new shelves will probably be installed next week. Meanwhile I continue to prep and paint!

The Studio Blues

Ok, we are in a "holding pattern"! The "plaster guy" was sick and hasn't shown up yet. The "shelf guy" can't do anything until the "plaster guy" is finished. I can't move in until the "shelf guy" is done. So we are stuck for the moment. But there is always woodwork to paint!!!!!!!

My frustration over this not being finished mounts!!!!!!

Two Steps Backward!

I returned from a lovely vacation in Florida refreshed and ready to paint the woodwork in the studio. When I started to work on the shelves I noticed something "funky". They were warped, some up, some down! Now I know that weavers are sometimes warped (!) but I did not expect my shelves to be warped.

Long story made short, they removed the old shelving and it is being replaced with a California Closet type system. This actually will be better for me as it will be more flexible shelving. The warping was a blessing in disguise. However it does mean more mess and another round of delays. On the positive side, I will not have to paint the book or yarn shelves as these will already be finished.

Tomorrow, hopefully, the "plaster guy" will come and finish the wall.

So we are back to ..................

I was supposed to be in my studio happily weaving by now. Another month has gone by. The Open House is set back again ---maybe April!?
