plans, plans, plans

Oh, my head is always full of plans… Harder to find the time to make them happen, though.

Well, one plan has been signed and paid for at least: my mother and I are going to participate jointly in the Perthshire Open Studios in September this year. (We’ll be doing that at my mother’s, since her studio is the one actually in Perthshire.) Six-and-a-half months to prepare a jaw-droppingly marvellous exhibition of our respective dyeing and weaving — should be enough, give or take a thesis. Don’t tell my supervisor.

Another plan is just lying in a heap on the table. These yarns are lining up to participate in some Theo Moorman studies on the Delta.

I’ve been weighing up options and looms, and generally making my interior life difficult for myself as always. There are reasons why it would be good to use each of three different looms, and reasons against each of them as well. I’m currently opting for the Delta because it is the only one with two warp beams and that seems likely to add the most to my comfort once I’m ready to warp and weave. Still time to change my mind, however.

And finally, I’ve enlisted Stuart in some storage planning.

This little corner was improvised when I needed to clear space for the Megado, but my leaning tower of shelving is not really using the space very effectively (and I can never find anything I put here). The chaos on my work table would like to be relocated here, in neatness and order, so that is the next stage of the studio master plan*.

*And if you believe I have a master plan… well.

    Ummm… errr…. Do you have to protect your teddy bears from your kitty cats?

      Apparently not. Teddy bears don’t have a fraction of the appeal of electric cables or the plain old wooden pencil. Yum.

    Lovely thing to be able to have an open studio day with your mother!
    And for Moorman, I would opt for a double beam too.
    Regarding a Master Plan, I’m sure you’ll come up with one before long 😉

      Yes, I think we will have fun! Not sure about the plan, but I’m working on it…

    Cally, that selection of yarns looks like it could be perfect for a project with glitz and glamour for the CW exhibit. There is still time… not that you have nothing else to do in the next few weeks.

      It is quite glitzy, isn’t it? I’ll have to check the submission categories before I start 😉 Mind you, I need to submit something to our own National Exhibition too. What a lot to think about.
