Someone slap me...on the back that is. I’m pretty proud of myself. I came up with a new spot colour during my play. Suede Shoes, can you guess what colour it is? Be the first to use it and give us a review!
Why does fun have to come with a price? Was the eczema and tiredness not enough, I had to go for the trifecta with aches and pains? All the walking back and forth the bathroom to spin dry the wool, stirring pots and lifting them to the sink stressed my right knee. I thought omg I’m 58, why do I feel like I’m under thirty in my head and 70 in my shell? How many times have I walked this same path and did it with pep and now I’m favouring a gimpy leg? Trying to have a leg up stocking the shelves also literally meant having a leg up, elevating it so it didn’t lock in a straight position. Ah well, the gain is worth the pain and if looking on the bright side, my complaints today are minimal compared to what they shall be twenty years from now so I rejoice. That’s my attempt at a glass half full. That’s as good as it gets for me.
Ten bucks says I’ll still be here 20 years from now writing my every thought and sharing how I connected the dots of my liver spots and drew a map of Canada. How many of you will be following me then or will you be saying, for goodness sake woman, stop beating words out of the poor keyboard and go bake a batch of cookies for that dear hubby of yours.
Anyway, things are looking good for the new shelves, but there’s still room for improvement. We need more to fill those gaps. A colour per segment is my goal....guess I better get out the yard sized pans so it goes quicker. The oven that holds them had some sort of electrical explosion a while ago so I called a repair guy to take a look tomorrow. I was one oven down last night so I could have produced more spots. One stove has two racks, holds two pans, and needs two timers. I had a rhythm; a pan was ready to go in when a pan came out. The only thing I had to keep straight was which timer matched which pan as they revolved from top to bottom. I hate to brag but I can scrunch that ½ yard of wool PDQ so I could have used a second oven and juggled four pans. They fact that we only have three 1/2 yd pans might have put a crimp in the plan, but if I could have used that yard sized one, it would have been fabulous. The yard pans were custom made for us by a welder out of stainless steel. Twice the outputI A as the 1/2 yard pans for only a few minutes extra to scrunch up the larger piece of wool. Saves on power as well as it bakes a yard for the same time as a ½ yard piece.
Some of the riser patterns are going on the website now. We started adding a few with many more to come. There is the Country line and the Nautical line. Click this link to view. More to be added tomorrow.
