We've lost our house....
Things have not really gone as planned this month. I had lots of ideas and sewing goals that have been stopped by the painters. Now, this is a good thing in the long run because our house will be lovely when it's all finished. But, I had no idea that we would pretty much be confined to the two rooms not being painted - everything is swathed in plastic, drop clothes, and cardboard! They are almost finished and we will be recovering a few rooms this evening when they are done cleaning up and (hopefully) the rest in just a few more days.
Yes, that is my favorite shade of green on those walls! Most of the house is pretty neutral (brown) but I did convince Will to let me throw some color in here and there - the bathroom and laundry room on the first floor are green, Sweet Pea's room is yellow, and the kids bath upstairs is a steel blue. Eventually (hopefully some time next year), we will be redoing some of the kitchen and will also put some color on those walls as well (kitchen/family room was one of the two not painted since we were hoping to do some work on it soon).
Dominic and I have been spending lots of time away from the house at parks, malls, museums, play groups, etc so there hasn't been much sewing going on. However, I did make time to sit in front of the fireplace and work on his Halloween costume.
