It is coming along. We are almost ready for the big festival next weekend. Some more cleaning and a few new curtains and we’ll be good to go. It is a spacious cabin considering it was built in 1830. The door on the far right leads to a narrow stairway. The other door next to it is a small, under the stairs type closet.
Of course, the fireplace is the kitchen. Just a few cast iron pots and utensils, a bowl, a few cups and a plate or two. How many cabinets do you have in your kitchen? This one doesn’t have any.
The other side of the room is where the looms are. One in each corner.
Notice the completed rug! A visitor today asked how long I had been making rugs. I had to admit it was my first day and this was my first rug. I don’t’ think he believed me but he and his wife were there while I finished it and helped give me a “woo hoo” when it was done.
Most visitors stick to touring the downstairs only. The steps being narrow and steep. Some are brave enough to climb the steps though.
The upstairs seems huge with it’s open ceiling compared to the 6 foot ceilings downstairs.
It needs a serious cleaning. I left the broom there but nobody has gotten the hint. I’m afraid I’m going to have to do it myself.
That trick probably didn’t work for the farmwife 180 years ago either.
