We painted the bathroom walls Benjamin Moore's lacey pearl (2108-70), which turned out to be more mauve-y in the artificial light than we expected. We also had to account for the peachy tile on the tub enclosure.
After I asked you all for window treatments ideas, Jane's butcher paper suggestion got me thinking about a flat treatment...kind of like a roller blind, but not.
So I used a tension rod, some white Kona cotton, an appliqued rectangle of a Kaffe Fassett pansy print, and stitched a very simple bit of privacy.
I have three 5x7 frames, waiting for some sort of fabric accent, to add a bit more color to the room.
Sorry about the quality of these pics...the room is small and on the north side of the house...I had to resort to turning on the lights.
Friday and Saturday were filled with productive board meetings.
Breakfast with dear, long-time friends, then on to Meeting for Worship and a walk back campus (a chance to stretch my weary legs!) on Sunday morning.
On Sunday afternoon, I fetched Gretta (my navigator) at the Columbus airport as I headed East (she flew in from Knox College, via Peoria, IL). We met up with Hannah in Cambridge, OH for Mexican supper and hanging out at the hotel. Giggling and gossiping ensued.
First thing Monday morning we had a quick visit with my grand-kitty, Javier, and we loaded up the Batmobile with some of Hannah's stuff and we drove all the way back to CT. Hannah will head back East with the rest of her stuff in a few weeks.
Tomorrow there will be some long overdue basting here, and finally a bit of SEWING. It seems like a long time since I "sew and sowed" here...
Hope you are all well. I look forward to catching up with your blogs and comments soon. xo
