Cleaning up the Studio


I think the time has come.  I am out in the studio almost every day weaving on several projects, working on blogs like this one and doing the administrative work that all companies require.  One of those administrative chores is cleaning up.  Since the shop hasn't been open to customers for weeks and weeks, my vacuuming, dusting and floor mopping have taken back seat to weaving.  No big surprise there - I love weaving and actively dislike the cleaning up.  On the other hand, I am mostly bare footed out here so grit on the floor gets noticed very quickly and forcefully dealt with.

On the docket today is... vacuuming up all the fluff bunnies...

...mopping up the various coffee spills...

...dusting the window sills...

...wiping off the counters, tables and looms...

...and taking down the wonderful balsam Christmas wreath that has hung on my front door since just after Thanksgiving.

I have loved having this wreath up on my door all this time.  It smells wonderful and even as old and brown as it is, I get a wonderful happy fragrance everytime I walk through the door.  But it really is old and brown.  Amazingly, the wreath has lost very few needles.  I buy five of these wreaths every year and they are very different in how long they last.  Some start to drop needles immediately while others just stay on and on.  You never know.

Washing the windows is also on the list but that will have to wait until at least tomorrow.
