While I managed to curtail the start of a new quilt I did realize that I could scratch that particular itch with a little kitchen project. The kitchen has a ways to go but I can get some accessories happening.
The colours for the kitchen are a medium/light taupe and aqua with a nod to the golds in the adjoining rooms. I need to decide what the final colour for the hutch will be. A new island will definitely be aqua and I'm deciding if it will be the only aqua . ???
Interestingly the fabric I am using for my kitchen valence, the taupe tone on tone, was bought for the Conway Album quilt which under went a couple of colour revisions. :O So I have LOTS!
I want to order new roller blinds as this is a south window and then I can figure a simple valance for this window. The Rooster has always pulled any kind of curtains up and out of the way so he can survey his farmdom and I now just do a valance. lol
This room is still a work in progress. I need to put a final coat on the window and door trim. At some point I will add a molding to the top of the wood and probably paint the bottom a darker taupe but that will be after we take out the sink and move it into an island.
When I raised the wood part of the walls I changed the space available for pictures. I've had to reconfigure things. The stove wall needs tiles and an overhead vent. That little birdhouse now seems wrong. ??? I like a variety of wall art so perhaps a wall hanging is what the kitchen needs. oh! BTW I'm 'relaxing' the sheer fabric for the sitting room window. Ahem, I'm really gathering my nerve to tackle that slippery stuff! :(
But I am making a runner for the table and a couple of curtains from the ToT fabric for under the sink. The new overhead light is dismal so that will be replaced also. :( I'm feeling good about the kitchen but now to complete it!
I realize it is a new project but I got the size down to something a bit more manageable. lol This is my attempt at improvisational piecing! I may skinny up the widths. ???
The weather is warming and that means we are getting snow. Hence the whiteout in the kitchen window. Looks like a good evening to make curtains and scratch my patchwork itch. The Rooster is on supper tonight! Cock a doodle DO!
