And my hands are full of paint. Yes indeedy. I have been going through the hassle again of painting the cupboards but I can't help it. If you aren't happy, change it. I'm too old to "live with it for a few years". This stuff really sticks to your hands if you're a messy painter (raise your hand if you are - mine is waving wildly) and when my little package came in the mail, I couldn't get the damn paint off fast enough.
Linen. Yes more linen. I was seeing mention of Birds of a Feather fabric and having never seen it, heard of it, or having a local source, I ordered clueless. Happy dance. Hard to do with swollen feet and toes but this was worth the pain. Usually I get color or texture that I don't care for but I like this. Not as much as my original stiff Rook, but we have to move on at some point and stop whining. Sparrow on the left. Sparrow!! Immediately ordered more in a different count. Plus, Meadow Lark. Who knew? I didn't. Stitchers without shops (we should have our own group and ban the fortunates) really miss out on a lot of designers, fabrics, and colors. I can picture a red santa on this brown but if not, I will have it. We all have that sickness of HAVING TO HAVE IT even if we don't use it. Don't we? Am I alone?
My Midge/Missy/Little Girl was sleeping outside the kitchen window I was painting. Bought the last pack of impatiens in my pink because some are not doing well.
Taking a paint break for the night, may do some stitching but painting has made my right hand stiff and sore. Too chilly to sit outside.
A few of you wanted to know what we were doing with legs on the cabinets and what I meant by the recess. Here it is. That toe kick area is usually the same finish as the cabinet, but the leg detail just blended in with everything painted the same. I've seen some painted black to recede but to me it's too obvious. So we stained the wood to match the floor and now that area isn't noticeable at all and the legs show up nicely. They will of course be painted to match the cabinets.
Carole is finally hooked up to the correct monitoring device. She's anxious to get Mark's Explorer but we haven't picked out a new car yet. We're very bad at making decisions. His is a 2005 with 55,000 miles. Mine is a 2003 with 50,000. We need to get out more.
Take care and stay safe!
