What do blow in attic insulation and bulging book shelves have in common? They both constitute my focus for this weekend.
For weeks we have tried to hire someone to add insulation to the attic of our house (apparently R-50 is the recommendation in this province – we are only at R-22). With phone calls and requests for estimates gone completely ignored we called the local home improvement center and within 24 hours have the insulation blower and 23 bats sitting on our front porch. This will be our job tomorrow.
Meanwhile I am sorting the studio. I have procrastinated long enough, it’s time to prepare a mega sale of my art and textile related books, many barely opened. Before we moved here I panicked about living in the country and not around the corner from a well-stocked library. I went a little crazy with moving my entire library and over the past ten years have augmented the existing stock. My heart aches but I know that I will not ever have a studio like this one, so the books have to go.
Not only am I offering my books (many of them out of print!) at fair prices I will also accept reasonable offers on approximately 100 art pieces (the final count is still not quite set) created from 2005 to now.
I don’t have a huge fabric stash but what I have will also be culled… can’t make any definite projections of what and how much fabric will be offered at this time.
Right now I am sorting, stacking books on tables and trying to determine the exact date of my studio moving sale.
Stay tuned and check back as I will be posting the dates of the sale within the next few days!
Enjoy your weekend!
