don’t be crewel
Sorry for the terrible pun. I couldn’t help it.
The post office wasn’t hatin’ yesterday:
And I sat right down last night with my remote control and got started. This is just like coloring in a coloring book, only with yarn instead of crayons. These colors are so fun. The linen is really lovely, and the color is just perfect. I’m not quite sure how to photograph orange, it’s a little off in my picture, in reality it’s a little deeper, not so sherbet-y looking. And there is even a piece of lime green linen for the back of the pillow. Now I’m really going to have to recover the cushions on my living room settle, I have the perfect deep periwinkle Susan Sargent print just waiting to be used for this project, and my orange pillow will look great on there.
Of course, then I have to tear down the hideous wallpaper and repaint the living room, make slipcovers for the two wingchairs and figure out what to do with the piano, which doesn’t really fit in our little room, find a new cabinet or stand for the television so I can get rid of the slightly unstable Ikea armoire and get the wood burning stove fixed or replaced, because at this point, a cozy fire will be just perfect in our cute little living room. I’ll also need some art for the walls, I’m thinking about maybe a small wall quilt, or maybe a wall full of small quilts. Oh, and curtains, I have to figure out some window treatments, I have no idea what to do there…
All because of an orange pillow.
