Is there such a thing as a hobby-crush? Because I have a hobby-crush on modern quilters. And as soon as I finish up my current sewing projects, I’m going to finally take a running leap into the quilting circle.
I posted last week about the small modifications we’ve made to our bathroom over the last several years to help us get by until we were ready to totally renovate this room – and I couldn’t be happier that the time is finally here!
As you can see, I am feeling drawn to whites, grays, and blues – light, airy spaces! It feels nice and clean, which is always a good feeling in a bathroom.
For some reason, the DIY projects I always want to do the most are the ones we put off the longest. Probably because the projects I am most interested in are the frivolous ones.
Right now our hallway is BORING. It’s long and narrow and lacks any traces of personality at the moment. While we (briefly) toyed with opening it up, it’s just not worth the trouble. Instead we widened the door to the living room by a foot (as evidenced by the lack of trim boards).
Over the summer I met Don Gorvett, a printmaker in Portsmouth, N.H. We fell into a lengthy conversation about making time for art and, although a complete stranger, he was extremely encouraging to me as an artist and I left his studio quite inspired.
The front porch has been the name of the game around here lately. We’ve installed a beadboard ceiling, replaced the ceiling fan with a light, re-screened, painted the front door and painted the floor. I’ll share pictures of that later… because right now I’ve mentally moved on to porch eye candy!! The good stuff!
