LifestyleNo work was done yesterday by the contractors. The Spousal Unit did a bit of work in the living room after he shovelled snow off the driveway. His job again today-- shovelling more snow.
My diet has been off lately due to the cold weather and the stress of renovating. I find that I do not enjoy the mess, dirt, and dust that comes with renovating. It sets my nerves on edge. I also find that I am on edge not having control of the situation. I am surviving but it is hard especially when I have to make snap decisions. We won't talk about the dust and dirt and how it makes me feel.
This winter, I have felt the cold more so than other years. I am trying to drink more hot liquids to keep me warm but I still am cold.
At work I am discounting rolls of drapery. It means that I handle almost every roll in one section. I call it my arm and shoulder workout. It is neat to see all the drapery and upholstery fabric (high end stuff) and every once in a while I find something I like.
But, there was a piece of fabric from the lower end drapery fabric that caught my eye. I loved the blues in the flowers but wasn't sure of the back ground colour. I don't like yellow tan.
I brought home a piece we found in the freebie box and put it against the bathroom wall. I like it but still how will it work in our bedroom for cushions on the bed. Was mulling it around when I discovered a roll in the section I was working on.
The background is the same colour as the walls which is the weak point of the fabric. I would have liked it lighter. But the white and denim blues were perfect for our bedroom. I really can see this as pillows on our bed with white bedding. Ideas are mulling in my head on how to do our bedroom. We will see what rolls I pull today that can go with that fabric or even replace it.
SewingThe sewing machine and iron are set up and ready for me to sew/embroider. No picture but I promise I will be taking pictures as I sew and sort down in that space. My evening spot for the next few days.
The chandelier I like has halogen bulbs so now I need to see if I can replace them with LED bulbs. If not, I will have to look for another light fixture.
TodayI am working and hope to sew tonight. Everything is ready for me to get busy.
Until the next time.......................
