The ongoing washer and dryer saga continues. My handyperson managed to get the entire area prepped for installation on Friday. I received a call that there was trouble with the truck again and he would make sure I was on the delivery for Monday. Okay, not great, but I had Monday off so it was not as bad as it could be. Over the weekend I cancelled my Saturday plans since I needed a weekend to be an introvert and apparently I would have Monday delivery and Tuesday Installation. I did do crafty things over the weekend that I will detail in the next paragraph. When I called on Monday about 9:30 am to find out what time I could expect delivery, only to find out that they had me scheduled for this Friday. I told them this would not work because I was working, however I had Friday the 1st off since I was working Saturday the 2nd. So instead of a delivery followed by installation followed by laundry I’m looking at a trip to the laundromat and another weekend taken up by trying to get these installed! Yay.
The crafty content has been pretty fun. I managed to install the quilt hangers to get the planning panel to hang properly. I put two up for the corners and I’ll put the other two up soon to hold the center of the panel since it is sagging pretty badly. I do like how it is working though, I have a better idea of how parts of the quilts are going to turn out.
I put together my quilting frame and hung up hooks that are intended as bike hooks. I’m using these padded bike hooks to hold my three quilt rollers on the wall and out of my way. Since the hooks came in a pack of 6 I’m using two others to hold my 36” rigid heddle loom on the wall as well. I’m so pleased about these storage options, and now I am contemplating about installing shelves on my wall. I always seem to forget that walls a great option for additional storage without taking up floor space.
I did take the folk embroidery class on Sunday, this was the third of three classes, and now I am relatively confident in creating an embroidered piece that can then be used as an appliqué piece. I”m also fairly confident that I’m going to be taking a dress making class that seemed like a ton of fun for the participants whom were all different sizes.
My weekend was not all stitching and hanging things on the wall however, though I did get my crafty pictures hung up in my second room, I also spent some time opening up slightly compacted fiber on my drum carder. I now have about 7 fluffy batts for me to spin from come next week. This week I’m doing a mending class and next week we are mostly working on spinning and weaving demonstrations. I think that everyone is going to have a ton of fun, I’ll be using a couple of my fluffy batts as well as some bast fibers for demonstrations. I have a very small skein of flax spun up, I need to spin another little skein that I then boil for about 2 hours.
Okay, that is it for right now. I’m currently debating if my wifi problems are the modem going out or if I need signal boosters more than I thought. Until next time remember to Live Life a Little More Abstract!
