The laundry room nears completion & Bill & Nick did a fabulous job on this unique laundry room!
However in order to have change one must first have chaos!!
Then it all started to happen...
The new laminate, waterproof floor was installed. This flooring will also be added to the two upstairs bathroom with their renovation next year, adding a continuity throughout the upstairs.
Thank you Bill & Nick for bringing my ideas to life! Handsome & handy guys!
And the back staircase is done!
So while the guys worked upstairs - I sewed downstairs!
I was procrastinating on making Mitchell's drapes. I had spent a whole morning measuring & cutting them at cousin Ann's studio. She has a wonderful open space & large cutting table that she generous let me spread out all the fabric & blackout on. I had done it a couple weeks earlier on the living room floor...all to the wrong measurements!!! The same fabric was found at another Fabricland & purchased, wow that was an expensive mistake. One that I'll have huge hindsight to! Measure twice...cut once. So I procrastinated all that much more because of it!
So I challenged myself to do it in blues to go with my blue/white dishes at the cottage.
It still needs more blocks & the weather this week is frigid, so I'll sew!
Creative minds are seldom tidy...very creative indeed. lol
I also worked my William Morris fabric into it, I'm going to like this piece!
Next post should have the completed hanging.
Then it was time to clean up all the blue & white fabric & pull out the drapery fabric. I started with the bedroom drapes first as there was only one pair of those to do & it was done with what I think was upholstery fabric & were they heavy. On that note - they're going to be a great insulator from the Alberta winters & the hot summers. I also lined them with a heavy blackout lining too!
This is Mitchell's living room after being painted.
I never took pictures...so I'm hoping Mitchell sends me some when they're installed!
It's great to see that he uses the quilt I made for him! I enjoy seeing my labours of love being used.
He made my Valentine's Day! Mitch sent me a limited edition, silver heart, with a pink stone & diamonds, for my Pandora bracelet.
Thank you Mitch & I hope you like your drapes. XO
By the time I got the drapes done my hands were covered in band aids, those darn straight pins would grab me, prick me & make me bleed on the fabric as I handled it through the machine. I'd put on a band aid & continue...sewing with band aids, so my DNA was not all over the drapery! lol
Now with that done & the 5 roman shades are waiting in the que...
I'm going to finish the April BOM wall hanging & several UFO's first.
My guardian gargoyle seems to have had just about enough too! lol
I put out the ceramic rabbit pitchers too.
The weather man made joke of winter being in Ontario & Quebec & the maritime's were the snow banks. Wow have they had the snow this winter & the winds that create horrible drifting!!
So much snow!!
Thank you for stopping by & I hope your winter a season is of health & happiness.
Cozy in for the rest of this winter season ride & let those fireplaces blaze!
Procrastination is the thief of time ---- but I do work well with a deadline!
Enjoy your drapes Mitch!
