Wow, has it been an increadibly busy weekend. Allen and I have been going non-stop since Saturday morning. I found out last week that the baby’s furniture had arrived at least four weeks earlier than we had expected. This is good in that we now have plenty of time in case we have to return any damaged items, but was bad in that there was still a ton of things we had planned to get done before there was furniture in his room. The two big things I wanted to get done was repainting his room and having our upstairs carpets cleaned. Thus, Allen busted his behind to paint the room this weekend so that I would only have to take one day off work for carpet cleaning and furniture delivery. Here are some pics of the room. I wish I had taken some before and a few more progress pictures. This room was the bedroom of the previous owner’s teenage daughter and was a mottled peach/orange/brownish color. Now it is a grey/blue.
Here is a view of the finished room. The baby’s room is at the back corner of the house. He will have a lovely view of woods and the neighbor’s pool and basketball hoop. I just hope he can nap through the sound of the thud of basketballs on concrete.
While Allen was busy painting, I was busy trying to get all the rest of the upstairs ready for the carpet people to come. I think I made pretty good progress. Just the clean up in the baby’s room and the study to hit this week and a quick vacuum.
I also got in a couple hours stitching on LTDs German Garden. I am trying out a new rotation in the hopes of hitting all my WIPS and getting in some finishes. (If you are interested in seeing my rotation ideas, check out the tab at the top of the page) I would say I am at the 40% completed point on this piece. I really like stitching the circular bed on the left side this afternoon.
Now it is back to RRs for a night or two. I hope to have Carol’s house done by Tuesday night by the latest and next weekend my goal is to stitch Winter Dragon on Outi’s Dragon RR as part of the Stitch-a-thon weekend. I would like to have both pieces ready to mail by the end of the month.
