I suppose in a way the UNanticipated move (because we will have to at some point when they want to start the destruction) is a good way to divest ourselves of things that have become less important, redundant or un-necessary…….Even though we have been told the new owners want us to stay, we decided to take the opportunity to pare down anyways, rather than waiting until the last moment. No-one likes packing a life, whether the move is good or bad. And how many soldering irons does a girl need really?
I started in on my stoodio first. Less pain than i thought making piles of garbage, piles of donations and culling my library.
The ones piled on the floor in 2 2foot stacks are going.I still have to go through the top and third shelves, and one more smaller bookcase…..
I’ll be offering these for sale CHEAPCHEAPCHEAP first “locally” to friends who are textile afficionados and artists, then list the remainder on Amazon. Most of them are techniques i am way past or have already well built them into my repertoire or have no interest in anymore, some i haven’t looked at in years and some are just dust collectors All of them are in great condition, with only a few having my own “notations” on some pages. And honestly, i need less to pack and the money!
Behind the scenes, i am still stitching. Started the third panel/piece for Nightmare Interrupted and after 3 hours of stitching, decided it wasn’t working, so back to the drawing board. TDBAP’s last construction details are tedious but it moves on closer to completion. My next (semi) big project is to start work on a piece that is in response to another artist’s work for FAN, for a “collaborative” show.
