Old friends, Bill and Richie, start the process by moving a sleeper-sofa from the apartment on the lower level of the house to the new studio. Narrow doorways throughout made the outdoor route preferable. These combination pieces of furniture are heavy and cumbersome, and we are fortunate to have strong, young men to help.
We rented a U-Haul to pick up a king-sized bed in Penfield. This is a short 15-mile trip from our house, but the 80" x 80" mattress was a bit too much for our personal vehicles. Here Bill Elmer closes the door as we head for home.
The new cozy corner in the studio takes form. Inspector Suki, husband Bill, and various quilt friends will enjoy this area at visiting time.
The new bed (with Phillipine headboard, no less) is installed in our basement-level apartment. We encourage those who read the blog to come, work in the studio, and stay awhile. The apartment has its own kitchen, bath, and living area, and is self-contained. We originally built it for Marcia's grandmother, who graced us with her company for several years late in her life.
