For escape yesterday………. and then it snowed again. Try again Monday. The city beckons.
My car matches the signal box. Is that not just good planning and design?
The latest – it’s collapsed even more. Heartbreaking. I am coping by organising space and the insurance claim. That way I don’t think about it too much. But I can’t stop thinking about the beautiful fabrics trapped under that roof. And my postcards – from DH’s travels, from friends, some ATC’s… they were pinned to the bookcases. All lost. Silly little things but they matter.
Had I lost my various Towers or my precious hanging “Alberts and Stryer”, well, I’d still be an hysterical mad woman. That might still happen once the numbness has worn off.
It’s a grieving process of a kind I guess.
A blast from the past……… if you’re a long time reader you might remember this picture….
this is where I used to work before the studio. Yes, that right, just this little room and the kitchen table.
Below is the view today. Same plastic storage units in almost the same space.
Below is the bedroom. All the precious hand threads and beads next to the bed.
The other bedroom. Oh, look, there are my machine threads!!!!
That’s it with studio photos for a while now. Too negative.
I’ll show you the demolition and rebuilding when it happens (you could be waiting some time).
So onto a happier note and maybe even some textiles soon (I have the last 2010 JQ’s to show you tomorrow).
I got my keys to the workshop unit today – the guy has painted the walls and the floor for me.
Isn’t that wonderful? Hoping to empty the container on Monday and move the few pieces of furniture that we salvaged.
I don’t often cross post with the Photo a Day blog but couldn’t resist another happy note – the Brora sale is on. Who can resist cashmere on sale? Snuggly, soft, warm and feels very safe. Just what I need.
