Same procedure (studio project 10)

.. as last Sunday. Collect, carry, climb, cache. The house looks just as cluttered as always, so it seems incredible that all this other stuff was ever in here. I dare not imagine a scenario where I’d have to put it all back.

Big loom is still tied up in the old room with no weft to show, so I’m postponing a decision about the tapestry loom as well; but I think I’ll have to make room for it up there until the kittens are older, perhaps bring it back downstairs in winter? Meanwhile ideas keep pushing and shoving at the floodgates, I swear it’s like Black Friday. Only they change; last month they wanted me to paint, those entities have now despaired and left, the weaving muses taking the current shift, taunting me with woollen yoga mats looking like a patch of meadow, as well as deep red madder and oak leaf yarns of intricate designs. Fairy cloak colours, indigo and japanese ikat.

They will have to share me with a few early garden chores which I’ve also ignored, but I try to take turns in between recharging my muscles here with you guys, since both the outside and the loft are still refrigerated. I had decided to mostly grow dye plants this year, but I haven’t even managed to start my seeds! Cake boxes are ready and waiting in the contraption, bag of earth has been hauled inside so as to be bearable to touch, I just need my focus to shift now.

Small loom has made it to the loft and I’m getting ready to wind a warp for it.

  1. Enig med forrige læsser, det ser godt ud. Og, ja det er et under, hvor meget man har kunnet opbevare i hjørner og kroge. Jeg har (over)fyldt mit projektrum uden at det – næsten – kan ses på resten af huset.
    Bare jeg kunne sende ting gennem computeren, jeg har nogele venlige genbrugs-damer i nærheden, der godt kunne overtales til at samle “uduelige” dynebetræk til en billig penge/gratis. Og så slider vi altså også nogen op gennem år og dag. Hvilke farver drømmer du om?

    1. Det ville være fantastisk med internetoverførsel eller et kakkelovnstransitsystem. Hvis du i øvrigt undrer dig over, hvor dine vaidfrø bliver af, så må jeg med skam melde, at jeg ikke kan finde dem, så jeg har heller ikke selv fået sået. Ved ikke om det er for sent med forspiring nu eller man bare skulle smide dem udenfor, de er jo bygget til at overleve vinteren. Hvis jeg ellers finder dem, der burde jo være tyndet ud, også i det skab hvor de andre frø ligger.

      Hvad drømmer jeg om? Tja, hvidt er kedeligt men kan farves. Alt for meget pink gør mig lettere hysterisk. Og brunt kan vi sende over til mekanikeren. 😉 Men ellers er charmen ved kludetæpper jo netop at designe ud fra det man har – faktisk har jeg et problem med at bruge uspundet uld til det aktuelle tæppe – jeg bliver nødt til at beslutte mig for en palet! (fordi råhvid…)

      1. Jeg fandt en pose gamle vajdfrø i en skuffe. Hvis du vil overtage resten, må du sige til. Så håber jeg de ikke bliver ramt af vajdfrø-forbandelse og forsvinder. De er lige spiret, og plantet den 20. så det kan nås endnu.

        1. Ok, så behøver jeg i det mindste ikke have dårlig samvittighed. Jeg leder lige lidt endnu, der skal være orden i sagerne! (det var en vits)

  2. You’re filling that space up! It’s very exciting. I’m in the same world, with lots of ideas all wanting to be expressed . . . and not enough time or energy to do all. It’s hard to choose!

    1. Just have to pick one and go. Some will persist, some will fade. A few are content with just being acknowledged and recorded.
