My friends, I feel nearly back home because I have moved all of my tools of the trade into the work space that I have been without for what seems an eternity, and it is ready as ever to begin productive times. As posted a few days ago , I have been busy moving into the new loft space, things I acquired since the wildfire; furniture from odd thrift & antique shops, now all packed to the gills with needles & tools, as well as wonderful yarns & delectable fibers to blend and spin. These things which had stored in places frustratingly inaccessible for over a year, now are all very very much in my reach.
Waiting to get back on with Tweed Chronicles, as my home-made custom blending board #2 is ready to resume blending experiments . . .
And I do want to become better at photographing too. And oh look! It is the ledge of ledges, beneath the south skylight, is nearly as before . . .
The place of hundreds of photographs of knitteds past . . . here my long missed endlessly artful friends Light & Shadow announce their official return!
In the weeks and months ahead the house will slowly get finished, you will see it all happening in the backdrop of things as I post about this & that, then one day almost without notice, months down the line, we will be moved from the tiny house up into the rebuilt house again, and life will be something like “before”. I feel a deep gratitude to those of you who encouraged me along the way, through the worst in the wake of wildfire and beyond.
Now I think it is time to resume the work that I love, and I am overjoyed knowing that the most important things are at long last, here. Everything in its purposeful place, and life is good.
Oh my! The light in your room is to die for and the furniture looks like it has been there for decades. The patina of each piece is lovely and melts together as if they were designed by nature to be there mated to each other. Enjoy your new home. Make new wonderful memories there. 🥰😘❤️
Virginia, that is a lot coming from someone in the heart of America’s Pennsylvania Dutch country! Thank you ~~ xx
So marvelous. I love all the colors in the vintage wood. And of course “Po”.
Thank you so much Morrie! xx
Here here to VMDiehl’s comment. Well put. You’ve made some excellent furniture choices! and “Po” approves. For some reason I am picturing a wood nymph who has stamped her signature in the wood inhabiting your space and approving.
Thank you Sorcha, and I think so too. Po will reveal itself over time, as long as I keep noticing the pictograph, it will have magic! xx
Oh, what a wonderful feeling! All that fibery goodness, fabulous light, promise of normality! Lovely photos, too!
Sarah, I was going to die unless it happened in June, so on the last day, the job was finished. 🙂 Done & dusted! Big hug to you…. xx
Whew! You made it! We would hate to lose you over a page on the calendar!
Sarah, I am so excited! I am right now doing my first blending board experiments in over a year, and it feels so healing to get back to my Tweed Chronicles… post eminent! xx
