between bizarre hours of sleep i've managed to get things done.
i love reorganising these things i've been waiting so long to do. my gigantic yarn stash is laid out (that $2/skein sale was very productive for me
) as well as my fabric stash + sewing tools. we've turned our bed and i may have found a little used side table for one side, i hope so. i've created a clothing closet for my girls, two ikea hanging shelves, and folded away all of their clothes. i put an over-door row of hooks for a few dressed on hangers, belts..and hung a large pink bag, so that it is low enough for them to reach to throw laundry in. i've rearranged the upstairs closet so that i have guest bedding + pillows up high, a couple of shelves for my love, one for me + overdoor hooks for long pieces, and a shelf for towels + bed linens, and the iron, then on the floor a couple of sturdy bags for each of our socks, with extra bathroom supplies behind. so great to have a place for linens! we just got our beautiful music stand, so that is exciting, we can start violin next week and have a spot devoted to it. i've managed to unpack
and put away nearly everything, hurrah! there's lots of furniture to put back, after the renovation, and some dusting despite having a cleaner through, but i have our table set up now and chairs round, and lamps...i have the compost and the cloth wipe buckets set up now, though i need to sort out where we'll put recycling before it goes out to the boxes. this is just a bitty place! there are still a million details to sort out before this place is running really well..we're getting the girls beds set up next weekend. everyone is very excited to have a children's room instead of a studio - for now we'll park the studio in little nook under the stairs..they are open, so i'm thinking about putting up some muslin just below that area to keep the dust off. i need to make a lamp shade for the girls room, and i hope to get started on making quilts soon. lots of fun! i'm hoping to have things running smoothly soon. these floors are a joy, i'm enjoying the light, and how easy they are to clean now.
the cold spell seems to have lifted a bit, but i really need to get some winterizing supplies for this draughty old thing. any tips?!
once there's some order in the house i'd love to get back into knitting projects.
there's garlic coming up in the garden
i need to get started on the lasagna type layering to develop the soil.
now if we could just sleep through the night
what are you working on?
