goodbye mill

I gutted the mill yesterday.  As soon as I can borrow my daughter's car I'll drop it off at a thrift store.

The mill was my first contest kit...I built something too big, I rushed it, my skills were at a novice level...I've never been happy with it.  I've given thought over the last year or so to gutting it, then remodeling and fixing the things that have fallen apart and I don't like...but three years of occupying my dining room is enough, I've lost all attachment to it, it's time for it to go, I am sick of looking at it. 

Goodbye, Moulin Cerulean...you taught me new things, and I thank you for that.  Hopefully one day, a few years from now, I'll stumble across a story on the internet of how some budding hobbyist found you at the thrift store and made you over into the cottage of their dreams.  Good Luck.

Arrghhh!!!!!

It was gorgeous.
I get it though - you and I are sooo much alike on some things.

And I do wish I could be a fly on the wall when someone finds it in the thrift.
SCORE!!!

Whoa! :O I understand completely, though. Sometimes, you're just ready to move on. :]
