23rd of april

 

i went to the furniture shop to complain about the wrong back
sadly, it seems, the supplier delivered ALL of those chests with a wrong back
so there where limited options, because i refuse to part again with it, it is just perfect, if i ignore the back problem :D
so i might get in a few days, or weeks, or never, a new back …
and desided, i have not stand it around in pieces, but finish it with no back for now
even when i cant close the drawer, because of the clamp fix the drumcarder, the regress (is this the right word ?) of the drawer, makes it possible to turn the handle just perfekt :D so i dont need to saw a cut for the clamp :D :D

then i finished the row of my entrelac shawl, while watching tv

005

but this bored be fast … and i started to comb some more of my grey wool
tadaaaa the box is full with little woolfluffballs :D
and i filled them into my paper bags, 250 grams each - so far i have 500 grams combed wool
sadly, this was just the 1st box i emptied - an even bigger one is still to comb *yawns*
so i guess, it will be more then 1 kilo combed wool, when i am finished

22nd of april

 

brightest sunshine, a fantastic day - to be spent at cafe pauli :D
afterward i was playing around with crocheting a stitch … ripping it all for a cupple times
an idea grows in my head, but sadly i cant show ideas :D

later at night i started to assemble my rolling drawer chest
its supposed to carry my drumcarder
sadly, the back is way to large - so i cant finish it
after a closer look, its not a back at all, but 2 bottom parts of the drawers stickytaped togeter !!!
i am short before starting to blow steam
but jörg says, i need to stay nice, its not the personals fault :D
so i guess i will go to bed and sleep, and cool down again :D
