I'm confined to the kitchen again today, while the front door and patio doors are done. It's all looking very nice, but of course now the window sills are looking like they need re-painting. I really don't want to start decorating again. How on earth do you do it with a dog in the house that's bound to end up knocking over the paint tin or getting it all over herself? Plus once you start, then the skirting, cornice and doors would all need doing too!
Think I'll stick with the "shabby" look a bit longer :)
I had a hunt through internet land and ordered a ball of the Cascade wool in Coral from Here. I wasn't sure at first if it was a bit bright, but now I absolutely love it. A really pretty creamy orange that adds a bit of "zing". The balls are 100g, so are quite good value at £7.49 and it is beautifully soft and lovely to work with.
Here's where I am today, adding the next rounds.
I've been thinking about colours and why we all have our favourites. The ones that we come back to time and again. I think for me, it's the ones that remind me of flowers, particularly beautiful mixed summer borders. Maybe that's why I never feel happy with dark blues, brown, mustard, etc because you just don't get flowers in those shades. Just a thought!
I'll leave you with a couple of pic's I took this morning from our landing. I never tire of the view from here and when there's a pink sky it's stunning.
