It might just have to be too bad because this was the best picture I was able to get of the baby blanket I am working on. There are a few little
flaws design changes to the patterns. Modifying it to work with the worsted weight sometimes screws up the square. It will sew up fine no doubt. You know, I love cable ply yarn but the little knots drive me crazy. The big knots I can deal with. Why do they do that? Tell me you know what I mean!
Painting is finished. Well mostly. The contractors didn’t install all of the moulding–anticipating the floors being done. So it looks like Kevin and I will be doing some last minute painting sometime soon. We’ll start with Gracie’s room. I just love her color. Spring Rain is so soothing.
Owen’s room is a little brighter than I would like–especially given the small size. It is, however, similar in color to his old room and I think that will give him some comfort. He has been resisting going to bed (in the basement) before Cameron. "I want Cam." "Jammas" "Cam, good night." Poor thing is not going to like being on his own.
As I mentioned, Cameron wanted dark green. We compromised and did half the wall the dark green. The top half is an off white and we bought a chair rail that will be painted white too. Cameron is happy enough. Although, the picture I showed him online had vertical panels on the wall below the chair rail–he wants that too. No way!
The orange ceiling in our room has been painted white. And the gold looks a bit better on it’s own. I can’t say I love it but it isn’t always just about me, right? I think with our cherry colored bedroom set and this pretty blue linen Pottery Barn duvet I have stored away–I am looking forward to moving up there.
The hallway was meant to be Monroe Bisque–like the downstairs but the painter misread his notes and painted it Wales Green–which is in the kids hallway bathroom. Again, not thrilled with the Wales Green (in the bathroom as the hallway has been repainted). It looked a lot lighter on the color chip. But doesn’t it always? We are planning to put up some wainscotting in that bathroom so it should dull some of the brightness! And the kids are digging the Hawaiian/surf theme we have decided on for their bathroom. Crosses gender borders–you know? Have to try to make them all happy.
I guess I will get back to my knitting. Thanks for stopping by.
