Since Chris and I got sick I have not had any time to sew. I was focused on catching up on dyeing orders and just feeling better. Things got back to normal Saturday when I went to Sewing Saturday with the Country School Quilters. I work on my community service projects there and was able to finish up this QOV quilt top.
Last month I finished the veteran's quilt version with more of these string blocks. Now I just need to get the back made and get both quilts quilted.
But that's for another day because I have a new design wall for a while. This is our master bath and yes, I did actually pick out that wallpaper. It's been there for about 15 years and I'm tired of it.
So I've started ripping it down. I'm just doing an hour or so a day and it's going much faster than I thought. Next I need to choose a paint color and all I know for sure is that it will be dark. This bathroom has 3 windows so it gets lots of light and can take a dark color. The bedroom is a dark burnt orange so the bathroom might be brick red.....because I love red.
Next I will finally remove this atrocious mess from the guest bathroom. Yes, I actually picked this one too! I'm really sick of it but I do think it's kind of happy. This room is going to be more difficult to do based on a test patch that I tried to peel off yesterday. This room will probably be painted some aqua shade.
Just to rid the house of all wallpaper I will do the office last. I liked this textured paper but it makes the room way too dark. My test peel says that this room will be really easy so I'll save it for last. I think I want a very pale gray in here. Unfortunately Chris will also have to paint the trim in this room because I thought it would be a good idea to have a different color trim. It was a bad idea.
I am also still working on finishing up the guest room. The bed is done but I need to dye the spread and figure out a simple window treatment. Mom is coming tomorrow so I will consult her.....since it's mostly her room!
Glad Chris likes to paint! Now I'm off to peel some more paper. Go check out what everyone else is doing at Patchwork Times.
