That's better

My name is Marlene and I am a colorholic.

But I wanted to start over on 30 count anyway, so if it didn't work, no big loss.  Floss doesn't grab as quickly as the linen and except for the border, I'm not concerned about a slight difference.  Well.  I just dipped a WIP 9 times in various blends and in Clorox twice.  I guess you could say I'm not concerned, period!  With all the work I have here, I am spastic enough to work on this instead.    BUT!!  I made a decision on the trim color - I'm sticking with the Studio Taupe that is in the first room.
 I found this on Pinterest and love the color.  This is putty!  But I can't do this any longer and have exhausted every paint manufacturer.  All my sample jars will be thrown into a gallon can and shaken.  It may end up being the perfect shade for the bathroom.  Dominic called and my cabinets will be started next week.  They will not be what I want but again, I can't wait any longer.  My search for a true cabinet maker that is willing to go a tiny bit outside the box is over.  There is no one left to call.  Think how bad it will be 10 years from now.
Right now I need to get the dyes put away and clean up my mess.  Mark will be home from golfing soon, walk in, and see that nothing has been moved.  I'll just quietly grind my teeth and he won't dare ask anything. 
Have a good weekend!
Thanks for visiting.

I think that I am a colouraholic too - I will choose a design to stitch just because I love the colours!

Good for you for being able to take care of the color problem. I don't do dye. lol! That is a pretty paint color. I hope you can match it. Hooray for the cabinet maker! Too bad he won't make what you want, but at least you'll have cabinets.

Well, progress is progress. I am glad you are getting things done and over with. A relief!

Marly,
Have you tried Pearwood by Old Village Paints? The color in the photo looks like it to me.

I love colours too! They make life better and happier don't they?! Great progress on your sampler! I love that photo of the dining room.

I think it's great that you can dye your fabric and get the color you want! We'll be starting a large painting project soon and I don't even want to think about choosing paint colors. Have a great weekend!
