Lots of pictures, and why my loom gets to be dismantled again.

On the 13th of June, my nice new craft room went from looking like it did in this post, to looking like this:

(Okay, the photos aren't fabulous, but it's been tidied up somewhat now. It was kind of tricky to find an accessible place to get a decent shot from).

Our house is currently a little chilly:


All the broken windows except the bulging leadlight have been boarded up now, but we still have some nice cracks through the walls too:

(the edge of the carpet is where the window frame used to sit, and that really is a gap through to the outside world that you can see at the edge of the floor)

And this old chimney is of some concern safety-wise:

The wood panelling is split and bulging where the bricks have moved. That's not an entirely comfortable room to be in at the moment...

The end result is that we'll be moving in just over a week (and we're hoping that we're not going to be told we have to move out before then!). Still got lots of packing to do before then. I'm not sure how long it's going to take to get the loom set up again this time though. (I have at least been managing to get some knitting done - it's portable and good for relaxation)
