My post yesterday made me face the fact that my studio is a mess. I complained about how small it is after seeing other studios, but the fact is - it's a mess. I haven't sat at my beading table since I began weaving.
The magazines across the back end up being a Charlie nest. I need a bookcase, or something like that. I looked for one when we were thrifting and realized that everyone wants a bookcase. I priced a new one. Ouch.
The idea was just fermenting throughout the day, when suddenly I realized that I might have the solution right in the room. I had purchased these wire cubicles after Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival. A number of the vendors were using them and they are pretty affordable at Costco. I really to do something. I am having a hard time finding things or even knowing what I have.
I had voiced my wish to own a copy of Marguerite Davison's weaving pattern book on Valerie's blog. Lee saw it and emailed me that she had two copies and would send me one of them. Last week, I finally had to clean up books and magazines and put some things away. I found that I had both editions of the book. The second came with Goldie and the first is a deaccessioned library book that Ian scored for me.
Today, I received a package from Lee as promised. I had emailed her when I found my own copy and told her the situation. She said to pass it on, so I'm passing it on to my new weaving friend Jeanne. I told her that's it's coming and she's excited. Fiber people are the best people, aren't we?!
Fire season in full swing.....
