Communication is an art form. There was not quite enough of it this weekend, and worm bin confusions ensued. There will be more building and woodworking to solve the Unfortunate Incident and create an object that is the correct size.
The good was getting useful tools and supplies readily available. I now have a vacuum accessory long desired, the round ended dust brush with horsehair bristles instead of plastic. Which was not spendy at all, being all of $8. Now I will be able to easily dust the outsides of the paper lanterns, which means the cloudlight and the bedside lamps. We also went to the Other art store, the one that has the best paper selection, and acquired two sheets of translucent decorative patterned paper (checkered, and unryu) to refurbish the window in the workroom. I like light, especially in the dark season, but dislike passers-by looking at me. Another lovely piece of rust red marbled paper will be an accent mat for the Chihiro print that Ariadne gave me ages ago, which has been patiently waiting for me to frame it and hang it on the wall.
There where six bags of unwanted fabric and other housey clutter sent to Goodwill over the weekend, and the yard waste bin filled with botanical detritus, and the big bedroom no longer has a table piled high with fabric scraps. The really good stuff was folded and organised, and the whyever is this here stuff went away. Bit by bit more breathing room in the cottage..
