Happy Thursday! I have six solid hours to myself today, and I’m going to make the most of them! I knew I’d want to, I just woke up this morning knowing I’m going to do some painting. I’m going to work hard, and get the family room finished. I can do it!
The hardest wall to do will be the wall by our kitchen table. I’ve put a picture here for you to see the ‘before’. It’s going to be a little tricky because I can’t take the cabinet off the wall, and I’m pretty scared of getting any paint on it, so I’ll make sure I tape around it and paper lots of it. I also have to take all the plates down and I’ll have to take out all the hooks holding them up. I don’t want to end up with all the little fittings painted into the wall ewww.
You can just see the hallway to the front door and our bedroom door behind. That was one of the first areas I painted last year. I have noticed when I’ve viewed the pictures on the computer, the green colour actually looks somewhat lighter. It seems to look a little like a spring green, but it’s actually more of a heritage green colour.
Also, I’ve included a picture of a lovely surprise I received in the mail yesterday. Karen (who is another of the girls I travelled to Paducah with) sent me a lovely toile fabric with a really pretty card. Karen is the other girl I gave an Irish Chain table topper to. It was such a sweet gift from her, thank you so much Karen!
Eileen commented on the quilt in yesterday’s picture. It’s not one of my patterns, it’s from Thimbleberries club in 2004. I normally have a different quilt there on my coffee table, but seeing the picture there makes me think I may actually make that quilt again, because it fits just perfectly there.
Lastly, apologies for not travelling thru more blogs in the past few days. I only have a few blogs in my bookmarks, and our webring host seems to have a problem right now. I promise I’ll catch up when things are back to normal. Hope everyone is having a great week!
