One can only keep painting for so long, before wanting to put something on the wall. I mentioned to a friend, that I was going to be hanging quilts today, and she requested that I include my method in a post. And so I shall. I will also say that this is not "my method," I learned it from some of the members of my art group. This is the final result:
This particular quilt is "Sierra Snow Melt." I've offered it for sale more than once, and have had nary a nibble. At this point, I'm happy to hang and enjoy it. :)
In other news, the carpet is in town. woohoo!! We've moved most of the furniture from the living room. I can't wait to take pictures, before and after. Several pieces of furniture will not re-enter the house. They'll go live at the walnuts, or end up in a yard sale. I'm currently sitting in the room, discussing the placement of the furniture once the carpet is installed.
Wow. This is like taking a shower after being caked with mud. It's so invigorating to see the room empty and getting a face lift. I'm sorry I didn't plan well enough to get it painted before proceeding, but that's the way it goes. One fix-it project at a time.
As I told my sister yesterday, I'm not looking at the house as a whole. My list consists of "what I hate most," and I'm working my way down. If that means that I hate worn out carpet more than out-dated wallpaper, sobeit. She's been encouraging me to update the kitchen. The kitchen is way down on the list. It's the living quarters that are currently the object of my attention, and I've declared war. So far, so good.
Let's hope I still feel the same way at 5pm tomorrow.
