I picked up a project that has been laying dormant for about 8 months. I had made an error and set it aside, there it has been waiting for me to rip back and begin again. It is a beautiful shawl called Echo Flowers, a very popular free pattern written by Jenny Johnson Johnen. Do you have that issue too? If I make an error I get discouraged, such a quitter! I am so happy I picked it back up, I pulled out about 9 rows and I am back on track. The Madelinetosh Prairie Terra is so bright and cheerful for spring and summer.
We have a ton of projects around our house (yay for Kevin.) Our mudroom is a total catch-all for bats, balls, cleats, sweatshirts and lots of mud. We decided to make a bench with room underneath for baskets to catch all the paraphernalia. Pinterest is a very dangerous place that I enjoy hanging out. I find so many projects for Kev to keep busy with. This is our mudroom before: (or during)
This is today’s progress to date. I still need to paint everything and pick out a color for walls above the paneling. I’m thinking of going with a light blue and then accenting with navy and gold. Not sure yet. The trim and paneling color is powder sand (I just love the name.)
