So much has been going on...work has been busy, bathroom renovations started today, spent twice weeks walking around in a black boot while the doctors were trying to decide if I had a fracture or not, and I've been sewing a wee bit. Sewing has just been fleece socks as DH requested some. It is a quick, easy project that says the I can finish something. It does feel good to finish a project even if it is small. I realized that I have misplaced a critical piece of the dress project. It has yet to be found. I'm really bummed because I really liked the fabric that I used. The bathrooms are both going to be a black/white theme. This will be replacing the 60s pepto pink and turquoise/black. The main bath will be a more muted with gray walls with the master being either a soft blue or green. I have waited 9 long years and just not realized I forgot to take pictures before the demo start on the pink bathroom. I think I have pics from when we moved in so maybe I'll still be able to do the before and after shots. The bathroom with the muted gray walls will have a little bit of shot of color in the shower curtain and the rug. I have decided to make a chenille rug for the bathroom. Here's the color palette that I chose:
A little shot of red. The cabinets in this bathroom will be white with a black top. I hope I don't regret that dark top. Replacing the top is fairly easy should I decide sometime in the future that I don't like it. So far, I have cut the fabric to size. My son assisted with layering the fabrics and I have started the tedious sewing of the diagonal lines every 1/2 inch and ordered a blade for cutting the fabric. I hope it is finished by the time the main bath is finished.
A friend and I have decided to do a monthly sew-in and alternate between each other homes. The first sew-in will be at her house and we are planning to make pot holders. We will be attempting to learn the free-motion foot and binders. My fingers are crossed that our pot holders get made. We are using the freebie pattern at Oh Fransson!: Quilted Pot Holder and tutorial.
I finally finished the " Over-Dressed The Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion by Elizabeth L. Kline". This is a very read for everyone. (Sorry, can't figure the font change).
That's it for now.
