WIP Wednesday

Behind and late - that seems to be the theme the past couple of weeks. Lots of great stuff happening, just not in my craft room!

Had a chance to get in some sewing last weekend when I got home for Do. Good Stitches Peace group. This is my first time doing the strip technique and while it's easy, it's a little time consuming with cutting and ironing.

Pattern is by Don't Call Me Betsy - String Heart Block

Looking forward to a sew day at a friends house this weekend. Crossing my fingers that I have something to share with you next week!

This post series is inspired by Freshly Pieced and linked up over there!

Entryway Repaint | Jamaican Aqua

It was time to make some changes in the Entryway, I had been wanting to repaint for a couple of years. As I posted before I went with Jamaican Aqua by Benjamin Moore and I am loving it now!

Then it was time to swap some furniture around and really try to open up this space. The red half table has been in the TV room and now has a perfect place in the entryway. 

The next task was to purge some of the books and hide them in magazine files [IKEA Kassett] giving it a more clean look. 

Here is a view from the entryway to my office - doors closed because it's a disaster area!

Still to do in this area...
  • Rug - hopefully coming this week
  • art work decisions
