Work In Progress

Posted on

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.  echoDo 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.detail 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)

beforeafterishThis 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.)

    I always wanted a mud room area that I could put a bench in. I have a hall tree bench in my hallway to the laundry, but it’s not the same. The storage doesn’t work since it’s all under the seat/lid. It always has too much stuff piled on it to even be able to open it. LOL Yours is going to be gorgeous!

    That color is really stunning. I don’t normally go for oranges, but it is just glowing!
