I only got two GFG flowers done this week. The truth is....(dum! dum! dum! dum!) I'm out of the plain green centre fabric. I think this brings me up to 49 flowers in total. I have some more hexi's prepped to be stitched into blossoms, but nooooo centres. I stopped into Lens Mills on Monday, but they had NOTHING similar. Met quilty friend Jacqui there, and she suggested Fabricland, but I have a sneaking suspicion I'm going to have to go up to The Marsh Store.
But this means I've been able to make quite a bit of headway on my Log Cabin blocks. Three more logs on each block, and they are done! Boy, did I ever use up a lot of scrap material!
The Simple Abundance Project continues. I dropped off another bag of stuff from my kitchen at the thrift store this morning. Also, I threw out all of the jams and pickles that I put up ...was it three years ago?...yesterday, which was garbage day. That opened up a shelf in the basement. Hubby and Itty Bitty are getting in on the project too. They contributed a bag of stuff from the man cave/music studio this morning, and last night, we dropped off an extra electronic Keyboard at a friend's house. Feels good!
Bathroom Demo/Reno Hell 2010 continues. Good thing I didn't hold my breath about Monday being completion day. The only things left to do: install cove molding, install a light fixture, install mirror/medicine cabinet, some caulking, a little touch-up painting here and there. It's all but done! If I thought I could do the trim myself, I'd do it. Maybe Itty Bitty and I are up to the challenge. Feel like playing with some electricity today baby???
Incidently, the wall colour in the advertisement above --it's called "Rain Washed" is the colour of my bathroom paint.
The next thing I want to locate is one of these chrome rack sort of things that are shown in the two pictures below. I don't know what to call them. But at least I have photos, so I can walk into a place and say, "Hey, have you got anything like this?"
Next on my mind is painting our bedroom. I've hated the wall colour since we moved in, in 2004. It's a dull dark'ish' grey-blue. Think storm clouds, cramps, and broken dreams. It's THAT depressing.
It is a HUGE room - it was once 2 small bedrooms, but prior to our arrival, it was converted into one big bedroom with an enormous walk-in closet. Our furniture is very dark wood. So I've been flipping through decorating magazines, trying to decide on some colours that are a little more uplifting, while still restful. Here's a couple of ads - -
