It is now 9:30AM. I have been in the workroom for a couple of hours. And to answer your question. no.... I am not even close to being finished cleaning. All the time, well at least part of the time, that I was working I kept trying to decide where I was going to display the new loom.
I stopped work when I found the last of the five dollar houses from the thrift shop.
It is an old one just exactly like Tessie's current cottage. I started wondering if the loom would work in there....Of course I had to stop cleaning and try it.
Here's what it looks like. Zar almost bumps his head on the ceiling and the top of the loom is just a hair from it. I think that, in order to use this, I would have to rip the second floor out to make the space more airy. Then there would be only one room. I am thinking that it might look a bit strange.
I went back to work with good intentions. Then I thought of the Russian cottage. I called Tessie and Zar and had them move the loom into the bottom floor there.
Interesting. I would definitely have to build a larger extension on the left of the photo where the hole is. I don't know that I want to do that. More work. And besides, Goofy Pig seems to think that the warp makes a good trampoline. That can't be good for the fabric!
Back to work. Under the desk, I found another Houseworks room box kit, like the one in which the Colonial Kitchen dwells.
Unfortunately, that one isn't built yet, so I had to have Zar and Tessie move all of the furniture out of the present room box and move the loom into it.
Keep in mind, the door and window can go in different places or can be changed to suit. I don't think that I would put the fireplace in the back either.
This one has the height that I need for the loom and for Zar's head. There are no bouncing pigs here. That is a slight advantage.
Now I am going back to work and let my mind wander some more. Any suggestions?
See you tomorrow.
