As you know I am opening a retreat in my home, here are some photos of what is happening with it!
I spent all of Monday painting the Americana room
No, that isn't a green primer but it sure looks it here. As you can see by the photo we just have the primer up. Kay was to paint the ceiling last night but he got home from work at 10:30pm and it didn't get done. It will be painted tonight and then I can roll the real color on the walls and we are removing the closet doors and I will be painting them as well. The closet is nice and white now too! The trim will be a vanilla color but more toward the brown vanilla than the yellow vanilla colors.
Here are 4 placemats I made in less than 2 hours last night. It feels SO good to be sewing again! These are for our Retreat Guests that come during the Fall. Click on them to see full sized and to see that each one has a different picture. I machine quilted them too and used fun matching fabrics for the back. I still have cloth napkins to make but ran out of time and fabric! oh darn! Another trip to my favorite quilt store! (shhh dont tell Kay but I am buying another full set of these so we have 8 ) lol
Here is the Log Cabin Quilt top. It will have one more solid navy border tonight after I get this posted! lol
Here are the fabrics I have chosen for the RED log cabin , with all the fabric I have I had to buy 3 pieces to match what I wanted to achieve! lolol sheesh I will be working on this quilt top the rest of this week.
Well, there is my update on the Retreat progress. We already have bookings and we will be ready to go within 10 days, so feel free to email me for info and the NEW website will be up within a week! I hope your week is productive as well and I would love to hear what you are up to!
