Chaos into order (studio project 9)

Moving is not just the process of carrying things from one place to the other, I’d forgotten about that, since this is the house I’ve lived in the longest, ever. Sorting, putting onto shelves, planning, carrying things back down again because you need them right now. So it’ll be a little while or longer before I can show you the finished project…

Well, I knew I had a lot of stuff. I also knew I’d managed to cram it all into a very small space (ok, a lot of small spaces, but still). So I was convinced that even if I’d originally wished for another 10 m2 I’d be able to swim up there! But the number of things that need to occupy floor space in the studio, not shelves, nor stand in the way of the others, simply baffles me. I need to be able to open the windows as well as step back to look at what I’m making.

Floor to ceiling shelves would have cut down the floor space needed for said shelves, obviously, but I’m beginning to think I need to divide this mess into two rooms to get more wall to line things up against. Hoist them into the ceiling. I wonder if my spool rack fits under the loom bench. And what about books? I’d planned to keep my craft books up there, but that may have to change. I keep finding more things that I want to use up there.

And now I have to go weave a rug on the big loom, to put under the big loom to prevent my shuttles from cracking when I drop them on the concrete floor. Then I can move the big loom, and that will probably help me see how much space I have for everything else. I think this Sunday needs cake.

Feeling just as exhausted as usual here at the cottage. ūüėČ

  1. And so it goes–give us what we want and we want more! I think this stage is the most difficult of all–nothing seems to meet your dreams and you begin to feel a little panicky. But you know it’ll all work out and it’ll be so much better than anything you’ve had before!

    1. I have a warp on my big loom so it’s a bit difficult to visualize how it will interact with my equally huge work table, since I can’t move the former until I’m done weaving. Maybe I should put everything on wheels, LOL.

    1. Jo tak, der er ikke lang vej igen, selvom jeg er g√•et i st√• med v√¶vning af det t√¶ppe som skulle under den v√¶v jeg v√¶ver det p√• – det viste sig at noget af mit kludegarn lugter af skimmelsvamp, og da det desuden er b√•de grimt og irriterende at v√¶ve med (knuder), s√• m√• jeg indr√łmme at det nu bliver arkiveret lodret. S√• nu ved jeg da ikke lige hvad jeg skal lave det af, trenden er klar og sp√¶ndt p√•, v√¶ven m√• jo blive st√•ende i huset lidt endnu.

      Heldigvis er der jo andre ting jeg kan hygge mig med, og nu bliver det nok snart lidt mere lunt deroppe p√• loftet. I dag vil jeg samle et staffeli jeg har f√•et. ūüôā

  2. Grimt, ildelugtende v√¶vegarn og s√• med knuder. Det er en oplagt kandidat til skraldeb√łtten. M√•ske finder du noget nyt undervejs i indflytningen – hvis det var mig, ville jeg i hvert fald finde et eller andet, jeg havde glemt at jeg havde undervejs.

    1. Jeg ved med garanti at jeg ikke har nogen tykke, gulvt√¶ppeegnede materialer i mindst 4 kg m√¶ngder. Jeg kunne godt fiske 200 g af den ene og den anden fine spindeuld og blande alting, men det ville godt nok v√¶re √¶rgerligt og lidt ligesom at lave mad med alt fra k√łleskabet blandet sammen, √¶g, vanillesovs, ansjoser, ketchup og 5 bananer, med √¶gte fransk tr√łffel p√• toppen!

      1. Og desv√¶rre s√• de lokale R√łde Kors damer ikke ud som om de magtede at gemme gammelt senget√łj til mig, det bliver alt sammen revet op til lapper og s√¶lges til en lokal mekaniker √•benbart. Bum.
