It's Saturday night. Where did the week go? Thanks for the commiseration and well wishes. For those of you who are migraine suffers, you already understand, for the rest of you, a headache like that will put your life on hold. This one was a monster.
I'm feeling like a person again. I finally decided on a direction for Hannah's graduation quilt. Here's a little preview. She's heading into the drama program at the University of Oklahoma. I wanted it to be a bit OU, but mostly fun, like Hannah! I have the first 8 of 16 blocks done.
I also picked up where I left off on the painting in Ben's room. The room is just about done. One more coat on the woodwork and it will be totally finished. Hope I can get that done tomorrow. I love painting walls, ceilings, but woodwork and windows are definitely not my favorite. I feel some procrastination coming on! I used two colors in the room. The space below the window is mocha along with one wall and the rest of the walls are a lovely cream. When Ben headed to college he took all his furniture with him. I love the furniture I found for his room, it's so retro. I found the headboard, desk, chair and a dresser at this great place in KC called Revival. It's a cross between a big garage sale, antique store and furniture store. They have a great selection(quick turnover) and fab prices. I think I got all these pieces for $125 total. I wanted him to have a "room" when he came home. The next task is to make a quilt for his bed to replace this one. He wants something a bit more modern and funky...he is his mother's son!
Lastly, thanks for all the suggestions for what to do with my Disappearing Nine Patch quilt. I got some very good ideas. I'm still investigating two of them, but I'm sure it will be on its way to a good home very soon. I'll keep you posted.
