In preparation for the Toika going upstairs in the front bedroom, it came to my attention that the ceiling in that room needs serious attention.
Seven years ago, when I bought the house, we patched that ceiling. Unfortunately, the lathe and plaster has shifted, or whatever lathe and plaster does, and the whole ceiling is peeling, and cracked.
We could patch it again, but I think it's time for more a more serious fix.
And if it's going to be done, let's do it BEFORE the big loom gets set up in there. PULLLLLEASEE.
So today, I managed to move some stuff.
I put the mattress and box spring set on Craig's list for free......an hour later I got an email, and had only a half hour to wait before they came and picked it up.
I dragged it downstairs by the door. It wasn't really heavy, but I did get it stuck in the staircase for a minute.
Anyway, it is GONE. Hallelujah. I love Craig's list, I tell ya'.
The hallway upstairs is full of stuff, and I started a garage sale box.
The room is empty, and ready for some construction.
And this ceiling will be a thing of the past.
To be dealt with no more.
I only use the Toika for BIG custom orders, so having it 'out of the way' a bit, will be a good thing. There when I want it, not in my way when I don't.
Tomorrow, the mess will begin. Hopefully, it will be done quickly, and we can move on.
OH, I almost forgot.......the giveaway.
It's an 'Anywhere Mat', in blue and white. Better picture coming when I take it off the loom.
Drawing Friday 4/27.
All you have to do is leave a comment, and tell me what you would like to see and/or read about on my blog. More weaving? More instruction? More cats? (pulllleasse) More philosophy. More food......
Tell me, pullllleasssse.
