|Tubs of yarn, my soap making supplies, a couple show tubs, and lots of|
fleeces all piled on my fleece shelf.
|My fleece shelf before the cleanup.|
Winter coats and fleeces piled on my
JL Hammett loom.
I emptied the whole shelf, putting most of the contents on our enclosed back porch, which also happens to be my dye studio. Much of it is still there, and I'll keep working on this project through the spring.
|I deconstructed the shelf and now the boards|
are being repurposed in the garden as raised beds.
I took apart the shelf and hauled the boards to the garden, to make raised beds (next week's project!). Then I built this cubby wire shelf. It wraps nicely around my triangle loom.
|The new wire shelves. These things take a lot of time to build, but I like the clean look.|
I can put one to two fleeces in each cubby.
|The new fleece shelf, with organized and|
skirted fleeces. I still have about 30 fleeces on
the enclosed back porch to skirt. So, there's
lots more sorting to do.
|Now, with the winter coats washed and|
hung up in the laundry room, and the new
wire cube fleece shelf, there is room to
move around in that corner of my studio.
|I now have clear space to go back to|
weaving my Fleecyful Wool rugs with
all these Jacob sheep fleeces on my
JL Hammett loom.
But right now, it's time to go do chores. My daughter and little Napoleon think I should be outside feeding sheep, not dabbling on the computer.
Here are the links to the rest of the blogs on the Spring Clean Up Blog Hop. Check them out and look at some awesome studios and great artists. Enjoy the Hop!
