Progress update on the mill

Hi everyone, Sorry about not posting in a while. We have made headway on the old mill. Next week the guys moving the mill will begin putting it up on the equipment that is needed to move it. So I'm guessing in another week it will begin its journey to its new home about a mile and half down the road. I sure hope that it will make it! I will make sure to take pics of the move. Inside you will see a Huge wooden grain hopper...hmmmm what could we do with this, we will certainly come up with something. Its a keeper. You can see inside on the main floor what it looks like. The upstairs has taller ceiling. All I do is dream of how I am going to decorate 4 floors. Anyways, speaking of decorating, I did just that in our gathering room. The wool is selling like crazy! I am just loving this new venture in rug hooking. I cant wait to show you all my newest designed 2x3 rug. I dont know if I mentioned to you that I am going to Vermont the end of next month to have classes taught by Amy Oxford for a Teachers Certificate for punch needle hooking. You can use wool strips or wool yarn in the punch needle. And also end of March we will find out if our Rug hooking retreat is a go or not. So as you can see Ive been planning and sceaming for some big ventures. The rug hooking retreat plans are that we will be open year round to rug hookers, scrap booking, wool applique, needlepoint, or any other crafts you may want to do here. We will start by housing up to 16 beds and eventually hold up to 25 women. This is a big house. Sitting on 67 acres. Plans are to also have one of our sheds as the wool dying shed. Anyone can come to dye wool of their own here too. Anyways, I have my fingers crossed. Well thats enough ramblings today. Hope that you all have a wonderful day. Blessings to all.
