First, let me give you an update on Scott’s mom.  Yesterday, she had surgery on her knee, they sewed up one of the 18″ long incisions in her leg and 3/4 of the other one, leaving enough room for the drainage tube.  They also repaired her wrist.  It took her hours to come out of the anesthesia, though, and they kept her in ICU.  We are hoping that she will be back in a normal room today, but we’ll see.

Other than that, Scott and I have been busy working on my new studio.  After completely cleaning it out, I taped everything off and have painted three of the walls a peach color called Cheyenne Pottery and have only the second coat on the accent wall, which is the same sagey green as I painted the living room back in 2009, with paint left over from that.  It looks so cozy and inviting.  The colors rest me just being in there.  Sandy suggested the peach color when we were discussing it, and she was right.  It’s perfect.

This morning, I will paint the final coat of the green and shampoo the carpet before heading back to the hospital.  Tomorrow, I will get pictures of the room before we start moving looms, bookcases and tables in.

This is the Master Bedroom of the house, and there is a full bathroom attached to it.  With Leslie’s accident, we decided to hold off doing anything with it until Labor Day weekend, when we will clean it out (it has been used as storage for at least 15 years), paint it and set it all back up as fleece and fiber storage, a dye center and a wool washing room.  We are looking for a couple of single-burner hotplates to put in there to put dye pots on.  With the double sinks, long counter space and a tub to hang drippy things into, this room will be a handy part of the studio when it is done.

To say, this set up is going to be a great studio is an understatement.  I am going to be in creative heaven in there.
