I probably messed up…
It was a warmish day, in the thirties, with sunshine for the first bit. I decided I was going to prime my ceiling boards for the studio, even if it wasn’t 50º.
I hauled out a heater, turned it on, and felt it start kicking out heat.
I then went to painting… shifting the 4′ x 8′ sheets around and rolling on the primer.
I was kind of rushing, with hopes of making it to the girls’ basketball game this afternoon.
Until I finished, I never checked on the heater again. Shoot. I was warm enough. Surely the heater would kick it up a few degrees in the studio and I could feel positive about painting when it was a bit on the cool side.
Knowing I was going to be late, but wanting it to stay warm, I had planned on leaving the heater on until I returned from the game. I double checked to see if it was far enough from anything flammable.
There was no heat! For some reason, it had kicked off and no matter what I did, I couldn’t get it to run.
Who knows what will happen now.
If my primer doesn’t ever set up, I’ll have learned a lesson… but I hate not working on my studio!
I abandoned ship and went to the girls’ game, which we won by one!
My first project of the day may be a failure, but my night time craft is a success! This evening, I continued to stitch the Christmas stockings together… and realized I hadn’t probably showed you all of them. So here they are!
I’m having more and more fun with needle felting!
