The family room/great room gets an uplift...

A new year and a new look. Since we moved in a year ago, this was the only room that did not get painted.

So here are some before pictures and after pictures.

We used Benjamin Moore Cloud White on the ceiling and Pale Almond on the wall behind the TV and the upper wall above the shelf. Below the shelf we used Brazil Nut. We carried that colour around the room to the bar wall. Oh how it opens up this already large room. The room is 25x25.

So we went out today to find a MAMA Chair to match PAPA chair. No luck! There is always tomorrow. I am also replacing a small window covering with faux blinds to match the other larger window that faces to the front of the house.

When we were out today we purchased two new smoke alarms. Ours are wired into the house and at 3:00 am the one went off and on. There was no smoke, just a worn out smoke alarm. Our Lab Max just about jumped into bed with us. So they are now installed, so no more excitement in the middle of the night.

Now I can get back to sewing and finishing this cute baby quilt.

until next time

passing the time

Passing the time...
Well what have I been up to. I must have too much time on my hands.
I drew out this replica of my singer featherweight on some fabric.
Then I proceeded to add a small quilt. After that I coloured it using my crayola crayons.
Then set the picture with a hot iron and freezer paper.

I thought I would frame it .
Do you think there is a little resemblance?

I have also been busy putting together a baby quilt for my new greatgrandaughter due in June. I know I'm a little ahead of myself but this way If I'm not satisfied with how it turns out then there is plenty of time to make another.
What have you been up to???

Some good news, today was my last day at physio for my wrist. It's been a long process since I broke it Aug 31. My wrist is 80% as good as the other wrist. I see my specialist on Monday.

Stay healthy, happy and warm.

until next time,
