The stove top has been disconnected, the island moved completely out of the kitchen and into the open area between family room and dining room.
|The new look for the dining room. HA!|
Mongo rides again and beautifully I might add. This is a very wide warp at 48". I stretch out each throw and honestly, it feels good to do so.
I made a choice to go less shafts and wider rather do double wide at a narrower width but lift more shafts. I'm happy with that decision. Look how beautiful the pattern is coming out!
Banket #1 will get 5 different colored stripes at each end. Shown are just the first two.
|Selection of 4/2 cotton for stripes.|
Remember I have to replicate this for the second length since they will be sewn together. These will be big blankets. I'm hoping for square 85"x85" or so. Big enough to really use on a bed of size. Go big or go home eh? It's the terrier in me peeping out. Grrrrrrrr!
And another satisfying make came out of the sewing room. The Jalie Rose blouse is SUCH a nice pattern to make.
When I saw this little calico type print with a fox (Dear Stella For Fox's Sake Collection, Fox Trot pattern) I knew exactly what to make with it and for once, it met my vision.
I wore it out to town with a pair of jeans and sneakers and feeling quite smitten with the whole outfit. Stylin! Actually it reminded me of summers when I was about 10. Light sleeveless summer tops (Grandma made with love) and soft denim jeans and a pair of not so white anymore Keds. I shed years in that shirt yesterday. ;-) Made me want to find a pond and catch frogs.
I swear, I can't bear to listen to the news these days and I can't bear not too. The poor folks in Redding California with the Carr Fire. OMG, is there no good news anywhere these days? And here I complain about a simple quick remodel. My shame.
This is what I got for today. If you're like me you'll still want to tap a toe at least.
