Most of the things that belong in the studio are now there. We need some hooks, shelving, and blinds, but it's getting there. Have to sand and re-polyurethane the threshhold between the two halves -- wind blew fuzzy bits all over it, and then I stepped on it and left two very clear shoe prints on it. Looking good!

[personal profile] fitzw also used renoferret's table saw to cut our tent poles down to 2"x2" nominal from the 2"x3" nominal they were. Fits better in the overhead storage space. Also, we might be able to use the left over bits for making freestanding walls (privacy/dividing, not for sound).

[profile] prince_hring showed up before I got home from work, so we went out to dinner as soon as I was ready. Very tasty grilled lemon pepper trout! He and [personal profile] fitzw are now trying to get their laptops to talk to each other and other technical stuff... I believe some of it has to do with getting us set up for uploading pics to the Artisans Showcase. That would be sweet, since I have photos from last EK 12th Night that I'd _really_ like to get put up. Bit by bit...

Did most of the foil insulation after lunch today, and found another leak in one of the window frames, too narrow for stuffing a plastic bag into, so I used duct tape. Finished that part of insulating after dinner and phone call to Una. Moved more storage bins back in. Will wait on installing plastic sheeting until tomorrow (If I'm lucky).

Think I'll go make some tea...

Those 12th Night pictures should be really nice. BTW, did you get any pix of D. Moiselle's shawl for Caitlin? *That* should be up.

What time should I hit Ruby Tuesday's tomorrow night? I get off work at 5:00.

Yes, I have a couple of pics of the shawl. We need a pic of D.Moiselle, and her permission.

Dinner at 6pm, so probably meet in the hall outside the restaurant sometime before that.

There's a new GreatStuff ( blue can ) which wont expand so much as to cause windows to explode.

I am so happy your new workshop is almost a reality. Such an amazing thing to have the room you need.

fitzw wants to be able to open/repair/replace the windows next year, so I didn't want to use anything that would be hard to remove. But yeah, the blue can stuff does work pretty well -- we used it for part of the insulating in the studio. Although the shelf fungus effect from the red can stuff was pretty cool...

Happy Dance! It _is_ really great to have a dedicated space :)
