Seven geese pierce straight line over frigid bay,
Intervals between them constantly equal,
Pointed wings slash as if joined to make an axel:
Today is the ideal moment between yesterday and tomorrow.
For a number of years now I have been asking Ken to build a working dye studio for me in our barn. I kept telling him I knew I could sell enough yarn to justify it, but I am not sure that he quite believed it.
Every year at Fryeburg Fair people would ask me if I had a brick and mortar store and I would have to tell them no...not yet...but soon. It was at one of those shows when my parents were visiting with me when a good number of people asked me about a shop that convinced my Dad. My Dad then proceeded to assure Ken by saying..."If you build it they will come"
I don't think that Ken was quite sure about any of this however until he sat with me for a day at the fair....hmmmm...... he proceeded to think on it some....
....and thought upon it did he....
This winter he has helped me to finally realize a dream. I am really and truly going to have a working dye studio that is not in my kitchen! I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am!
See those 2 vent holes? Yes...I am going to have 2 stove tops which with the bigger pans that I am buying is going to enable me to triple my work. I am excited because it is seriously going to help me shorten my turn around time in a huge way!
I currently dye 2 skeins to a pan with 2 pans on the stove. You can understand why I have a 10 day turn around for my dye to order shop....this will be huge for me!
The walls are painted and the floor is finished. Today the town assessor came to inspect the work (to raise our taxes of course) so next it is on to purchase the cabinets and counter that will house the stove tops....yay!
Now that things are really progressing, I will start posting pictures weekly until it is finished. Have I told you how excited I am?? I am pinching myself with excitement!!
