Quarantine Weeks #2 & 3 & A New Toy
Usually, by this time, Ken is working. When the end of March hits, he's rarin' to go. He can't sit still. The last couple weeks, he's hounded me on getting plywood, so we can get the inner walls up on the workshop. The first two pieces went up the 6th. Ever since, he's been standing around the shop lookin around, and I keep smelling smoke. Wednesday afternoon, we went and picked up four (4) more pieces of plywood, so the back wall could be done. Now, Ken and I aren't builders/contractors, so the walls aren't perfect; there's a couple small gaps, but Ken will fill it in with wood putty, so when we paint the walls, it shouldn't be too noticeable. Hopefully I can get some real organization in there now. This is where I think I'm gonna be looking up garage organization projects to make for the various tools, gadgets, etc.
Haven't done too much in the way of my patterns; I'm trying to get the projects laying around completed before I move on to other things. I have a giant tulip that I completed (I'll post it later. I forgot to take a picture of it in the front yard.) I also have four (4) white bunnies that I'm putting the paint on (ever so gradually, I'm afraid) and I was gifted with a tote full of Winfield Collection patterns from a co-worker this week. Her sister in-law had them from someone, and they've been sitting for decades (I think) needing a home. Last count was 96 patterns, with a few of them having multiple copies. It came with Catalog 17, (copyright 1992) which is what I've been using to track which ones I was given. Took two evenings of sorting and looking up to find out what was what. Quite a few were rolled up and a mess, so those all still need to be flattened. Hopefully, I can get to that this weekend.
Oh yeah; got a new toy, too. Ken got me my spindle sander I've been needing forever. Tried it the other day when I was working on one of my small tulips. Nice addition to the shop.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
There cannot be a crisis next week. My schedule is already full.
