I hate head colds!!! I've had one for a week now. It started last Wednesday. I do have my voice back, sort of, but I still have that yucky head cold feel!! So work this week has been minimal. I did go to Gatlinburg with handwovens for Arrowcraft to sell and then on Saturday we drove over to Asheville to deliver pieces to Allanstand which is in the Folk Art center on the Blue ridge Parkway. I finished weaving the pink warp and wound a white one that I hope to get on the loom today. But, other than that, nada!
So what to write about? I waited to post til later in the morning because we had a bit of excitement the last hour. Years ago we inherited an 1835 Chickering Square Grand Piano. It had been rebuilt at least 30 years ago by the couple we inherited it from. The lady remembers as a child playing under the piano at her great aunt's. They never had children and since we play piano, etc, we inherited it. It doesn't hold a tune. We've had it tuned several times and not only is it tinny, it isn't on tune and the keys stick. It's beautiful, I guess, in its own way, but totally takes up space where we would rather have a desk.
So, DH's sister wanted it to display pictures, etc. She lives in Atlanta. It's taken awhile but finally everything worked out so this morning the movers drove up from Atlanta and within an hour they had it on their trailer heading back down the interstate to her house!!!
Here, I'm hoping to get over this cold a bit more each day and get my energy back. It's been a drainer, that's for sure!
Heading down to the studio now.....until next week.
