Now armed with Levaquin, Prednisone, and Claritin, I am hoping to feel way better very soon.
I have way too much to do to be sick.
In an effort to downsize my weaving business, and make the "studio" a more welcoming place for us to live, I bit the bullet and said goodbye to more looms. I already sold the Cranbrook and the Macomber last fall.
A week ago, I sold my Union 36 to a good friend. Lois and I even put a 50 yard warp on it, delivered it to her an hour away, put it together for her, threaded and sleyed it, so it is ready for her to weave on.
Then a few days later, I sent my two Reed Ideal production looms to Ohio, with a passionate and younger version of myself.
I didn't feel sad, oddly.
It's certainly a big change for me, and a huge change for Crazy as a Loom.
This is now my only rug loom, my all time fave, the Union Custom.
Lois and I are jointly weaving an order on it.
What's odd, and actually quite cool, is that when I took two rugs off, one she wove, and one I wove, I couldn't tell the difference.
When we finish the order, we'll be moving the Union Custom in where one of the Reed Ideal's was.
For those of you who have followed this blog, you know that my living room at the studio was a burnt orange, actually the color was "Florentine Clay".
But it's been on the walls since I bought the house, so I decided that it was time for a change, and besides it didn't go with my living room furniture.
This is "familiar beige". My mother would have loved it. She was the Queen of Beige.
One of my dilemmas is framed photos. I have about 30 of them.
I hate marking up the walls, and I really think I want a "not so cluttered" look.
I am wondering if I could get them all scanned and put on a flash drive.
Then I could put it in my digital screen, and have a slide show.
The other thing I am wondering about, is what to do with the windows. I am not a fan of curtains.
But then the house is on a main highway. It would be nice to have a little privacy when the lights are on.
I have balloon shades now, but I want to see what else is available.
All in all, this is going to be a very busy week. I hope to soon be able to kick back and take some time for myself.
That's my goal.
