Hiya. I'm ready to fill Eliza's yellow house and "think" I'm making the right color choice. 3046 is the chart's color and I'm leaning toward 729. Surprising since I am the dull muted type. In floss colors too. See how washed out the 3046 looks compared to the 729?
When looking at the entire piece, I think it's the right choice. The inside of the 7 windows will be filled with 501 and that I may change to a brownish shade. I mentioned that I changed the 922 outline to the gray-dyed 922 and I never thought to check the colors next to it first.
I don't like the 632 roof fill with it so I'll probably choose a darker rust shade instead. I guess my lack of patience is causing me to not think ahead so in the future, I will try to remember to compare my changes to adjoining colors before stitching.
Remember my huge yellow hanging baskets? Here they are after broken stems and torrential rains for three days. We got home with the drywall 10 minutes before another downpour so I'm glad that worked out. This is why we needed more. Patti and I decided that the garage entrance which is open to the room we are changing, should be separate. This will prevent my having to use the same color trim and wall in this area and on the three closets. Here's an idea of what the change would be.
This little fix will make a huge difference. This will also prevent the removal of the ash flooring in the entry and I can start the new oak in the threshold. Painting the entry's ash or stenciling it will now be an option. You can see where the wall was that separated mom's dining area from her sitting room which is carpeted. This will all be one room with oak flooring. Yep. Oak. Not pine. I gave in because he's not fighting me on any other changes. You gotta throw them a biscuit every once in a while.
Now for more yellow. My new tractor!!!
I love it. It was just delivered and he beat the rain. It's a zero turn that uses a steering wheel instead of the two handed bars. The steering is turning the front wheels instead of the back like most models which makes it much more stable and recommended for slopes and hills. It looks like a go-cart or scooter doesn't it? And that's my 10 year old yellow car. I bought it in order to find it more readily in parking lots. I had no time to dally when I was taking care of mom and this color prevented any hesitation! It only has 40,000 miles on it so I will keep it until it falls apart.
That's it for the punch of yellow on another dark gloomy rainy day. Hope there's some sunshine in yours.
Thanks for visiting! Stay safe.
