The old house has been turned over to the new owners. Today I mowed my lawn, it took about 20 minutes plus 10 minutes of raking. Considerably less than the two and a quarter hours of mowing the old place took.
The horsey princess got a visit and some stall cleaning. I hemmed curtains for the living room and my bedroom so the place looks lived in. I need curtains for the spare room but it's not my priority.
The Best of Ohio Show is at the Kent State University gallery until November. I saw the show at the Ohio Craft Museum and as always it is a good show. I'm not saying that because I have 2 pieces in it but because there is something of everything, jewelry, ceramics, glass, mixed media, etc. Worth a trip to see it if you live in northern Ohio. This week is our TAA board meeting and a talk by Sandy Shellenberger about the creative life. We will find out how our fund raiser did at the meeting.

studio day 1
boxes in foreground were in the studio space which is actually the dining room
the wall on the right will be the design wall, I need to get some insulation panels to put up, next week. Today was rainy and windy.
I lucked out Tuesday morning the movers were there at 8:15am. The assistant was at doggy day care or doggy doom as she calls it. By 2pm all the furniture was in the new house. At 3pm the rain started in earnest. Lucky me!
I had originally thought to put the studio in the breakfast room but there are not a lot of empty wall space and no overhead light and I usually end up working at night out of habit, so the dining room is it. The painting studio will be in the big basement.

It is starting to stack up. How I am going to fit all this into a smaller house remains to be seen. But the books and bookcases will be in the small bedroom with Dyna's crate. Her own bedroom. Next she will want a twin bed and cable TV!
But I have been working on something else. Packing boxes until I get tired then I fit some stitching in.
