I’ll probably rather quiet til my living room painting job gets finished, and I can get things back in order. It’s chaotic in here right now. The painter was making good progress. He put kilz on the two larger walls yesterday, and got started cutting in with the paint today. Then we noticed a problem. I had three cans of paint in the garage. One partial can that was left from the top half of the entryway, which is textured wall, and a lighter color than I am painting the paneling, which is in the living room and the bottom half of the entryway. We also had a partial can of the color for the paneling, and a full can of that color. DH picked up the partial can and says “is this the paint, honey?” I said it was, without looking closely, as I picked up the full can, and said “this is the full can that goes with it”. I had forgotten that the other partial can of the lighter color was sitting in the same vicinity as the other two cans. You know where this going don’t you? Yep, he had almost all the cutting in done when we realized what had happened. I managed to only say OH CRAP, OH CRAP out loud, though what was going on in my head was much worse. So work halted for today while the wrong color dries, and he went to watch the Dallas Cowboys football game. The guy painting works for my husband at our glass shop, but he used to work for a painter, and does painting jobs on the side. He & DH are gonna work on it tomorrow afternoon. It could’ve been worse. 🙂

I love the quilting on the fleece blanket! You do a great job on these!
The quilt looks lovely. Our boys are causing me heart problems, I don’t like how we have been looking lately but I know tha twe will get it together. 🙂
At least he didn’t paint the whole wall the wrong color… good luck!
Painting. My worst nightmare. I hate to paint. Must be why my house is plain white outside, and my friends say my walls inside are “renter’s beige”. (It’s actually a color called “candlelight”) But you have an experienced person doing it, so that’s good! And you hadn’t painted it all. Hope you can get back to sewing, it makes everything seem much better!
yessirreeeee did you freehand that fleece quilt? I LOVE it !!
Now about painting ….. I can’t get Hubs to budge about color ……. he says we can change color by using accessories ……. sure! So our house is “renters’ beige” and brown ….. maybe a little burgundy in one of the area rugs, but golly gee whiz! 16 foot ceilings ….. and brown leather furniture with beige walls just doesn’t DO it for me. Ya know what I mean?? LOL Good thing I love that man.
Hey! You mentioned on your site that you offer quilting services to the public. What about out-of-state public? I’d like to talk to you about some quilts. Please email me at email@example.com. Or leave me a comment on my blog summersadie.wordpress.com Hope to hear from you.
Beautiful quilting, Randi… as always!
I am sorry to hear about the paint incident… but it will work out in the end, I am sure of it. Do show us a picture of the painted room, okay?
Take care, and hugs!
Thanks for the sweet comment on the christening gown – I hope you are having a great week so far!
