So we’ve moved! And we have enough space to swing two cats! In fact, I think there will be a day of hand painting wool in my garage when the weather gets warmer! I have a crock pot, a very nice microwave, and a *huge* washing machine which has a very nice wool cycle. (Now I can felt too… huzzah!)
The Magpie’s mother gifted us with some money so we went and bought cutlery and crockery sets and a nice Scanpan pot to go with the cleaver I got him for his birthday (yes, he does like shiny things, and he also likes to match his brands… I have much to teach that man). And his lovely DA, who helped us shift, gave us a dining room table… huzzah! Furniture!
While the upside is having a lovely, sunny, place to live, furnishing it is going to be expensive. My poor wool stash (or lack thereof) is going to stuffer, methinks. Lucky I’ve got my squares to work on! (I’m wondering how soon I’m going to be bored stiff on them…)
But at least I can now read and study without stressing too much. My desk got a serious spring clean today. A ordered desk is an ordered mind, after all! Now, home to make pasta! That’s right. from scratch. I’ve missed it! 😀
