These last few days of my vacation, I try to finish as many things as possible. 

My husband is helping me to get the furniture I might need in the shop painted in white. As I don't  have a definite plan so far, about my set -up.  Depens on where i'll be standing in the building etc.  I thought better (let)  more things painted white as too few... 

Also my other projects are still asking time. I have the interior project for which raw wool needs to be bought, washed and a bigger problem: also dried.... I can hardly find a proper space to get it dry ....  and after that where to storage it?

mergelland wol

bought 17 new fleeces, a kid passing by thought it was chicken... :)

my 3 washing tubs, and in front and back wool drying 

drying the wool, viltalakim

I added plastic boxes upside down, they let in air from the bottum so the wool can dry

I asked a grocery store for vergetable cardboard boxes and I now use them as storage for the dried wool. It would be a pity to add all the wool back in a plastic garbage bag again plus this is easier to make a huge pile...

Another project is a jacket for a wedding on September 14th.  I'll only show you one picture as i don;t want to show the rest yet.. I wil use chiffon silk and 2 layers of merinowool.... pictures of the result be posted here after the wedding  i think.

The beginning, calculating how big my felt needs to be.....

Druk bezig. Dat is een heleboel wol. Wel mooi om te zien, minder mooi om allemaal te wassen. Succes ermee.
