Upstairs at Prospero’s Project, the walls are going to be a gorgeous shade of . . . blue? Green? Discussions are on-going. Is Mad King George (a Fired Earth paint) an emerald blue-green? A sea-foam blue?
Regardless, with some colour-blocked Amysthest the effect will be eye-poppingly gorgeous!
In the yard, a few brave daffodils have poked their heads out. In our barn and in our Shepherd’s Hut (now dubbed Words on Wheels), a few brave books have ventured out of their cartons and on to bookshelves. Amazing!
Upstairs: Charlotte Drury made order from the chaos of our wooden type collection.
Downstairs: Mark Martin’s gang assembled bookcases on wheels (skateboarding bookshelves? Why not?).
It’s all progress . . .
Flurries of snow came with the freezing weather this week – but neither the arctic temperatures nor the white stuff daunted Mark Martin and his team.
The result of their work: A shed filled with bookcases.
And it turns out that Much Ado staffers were not to be outdone – no sooner were the bookcases installed than David Newman and Kay Hussey rolled up their sleeves and set to work cleaning shelves and – hooray! – shelving books.
The latest issues of both Flow and Uppercase have arrived. Hope they don’t distract our builders too much!
Envious of Mark (he’s reading Flow No. 20) and John (inspired by Uppercase No. 36)? You can have us post copies to you – click here to see our webpages with ordering details . . .
What a lovely day to assemble a shepherd’s hut! Putting it together took less than three hours; now the lovely building just needs a couple of coats of paint inside and we’ll be filling it with shelves and books !
Here is a slideshow of the work . . .
The first bookcases for the new Much Ado have been fastened in place. Maybe we’ll even experiment with putting books on them . . .
