and mine was thrown a curve I didn't see coming Sunday two weeks ago. On April 21 when I had planned to spend the day in the garage preparing to test dye some one yard cuts of several pieces of muslin I brought from Joann Fabrics on Saturday . But I never got to do that. Instead, my daughter Lyn died unexpectedly that Sunday morning and then I was hospitalized with a heart attack brought on by the shock of her death. I am sad, but my heart is healing from both the grief and the heart attack.
In my last post I said I would not talk about the house again, but I will tell you what I have done as far as getting back to creating, which my daughter Lyn strongly supported.
The sink is in. As it turns out my grandson Josh is a very handy person who reads instructions, follows them and has a perfectionist streak, so you know when he does it, it will be done right. So not only can he install ceiling fans, and light fixtures, he can put do-it-yourself furniture together and now, a sink in the garage. No plumber was needed after all.
All the restaurant type metal sinks I wanted were too long for the space I have so this sink from the Home Depot so far is working very well. I have installed some shelves (rather Josh did) on both sides of the sink, over the sink a dry erase board for notes and I have a small refrigerator to keep the dye solution in and a few bottles of water.
Here is my dye area, Yes it is a mess. I will let you see an image of the dye area when I have neatened it up a bit.
Oh, yes, Justin the middle grandson, installed two 4 bulb shop light with day light bulb to go with the one two bulb fixture that was already in the garage. So now with ten - four foot bulb turned on I can work late into the night if I want to and it's like high noon in that area of the garage.
