Ok - it was more than a box of yarn that prompted the rummage sale......

Over the last couple months - some major changes began happening in the house. It all started when I wanted to purchase 2 new sofas. Then the new sofas prompted the purchase of 2 matching ottomans, 3 end tables, 2 lamps, 2 area rugs, a love seat and new flooring in four rooms. The living room is now about 85% complete - still waiting on 2 tables, 2 ottomans and a custom piece of redware pottery ordered from: http://www.wisconsinpottery.com/.

So really the rummage sale was to sell 3 sofas, 2 leather recliners and 3 rocking chairs, along with a load of unused stuff that at one time we really needed - which we did - so mission accomplished! The box of yarn was the straw that broke the camels back. We were going to wait until spring, when Jim was retired to take on the sale. Did we make enough money at the sale to purchase all of the new things? NOT EVEN CLOSE!

The time in the studio has been minimal to say the least - between running from city to city to find the furniture (Pine River is near nothing) and Dizzy busy twisting balloons, the weaving has come to a stand still. Although 3 new Louet looms should be arriving here in the next 2 weeks or so, which will give us a reason to work out there!
