Where I’ve been…

There is still no sign of my extra yarn for Honey, so I’ve been knitting on the February Lady sweater instead.  I actually knitted the yoke twice, because the first time it was too small.  It’s still on the small side, but I think this yarn (based on my swatch) will get bigger once I block it.

Underneath the sweater you can see another project… I took my Ikea coffee table and cut sparkley scrap book papers to fit all the inserts.  It used to have legos in it, but they were always getting dusty, which made me nuts.  Plus… sparkles!  Who doesn’t love sparkles?

On Thursday we had my piano delivered.

I am in love!  I have been relearning some Chopin waltzes these past days, so that I can play one for one of Marc’s friends who specifically requested one.  The piano was a big hit at our housewarming party, which we had last night.  We had at least 5 pianists here, not including me, and it got quite a workout!

Somehow I don’t have any photos from during the party that turned out, but it went really well – lots of compliments on the paint colors, especially the dining room, and they actually managed to eat up the insane amount of food that I made!

Thanks so much to everyone who has supported my crazy house fixing so far – we are so happy here, and at times I can’t believe we actually finally found a house that was so perfect, and that we actually live there!

Leon?  He’s just in it for the gift(bag)s!

  1. I scrolled back over your pictures about half a dozen times. I love the gorgeous colors! It all looks so rich and beautiful. Isn’t it amazing what paint can do? Imagine all those rooms in off-white, and it’s a completely different house.

  2. Loving your coffee table done with the scrap book paper! It looks like a quilt top. The piano looks stunning with the vibrant walls and rich wood around it. I can just imagine the beautiful melodies from the piano and surrounded by the rich colours you’ve really brought your house to life. Standing ovation stunning!!

  3. I love your coffee table! We painted our dining room the same color as your kitchen and love it. You did a great job, the whole place looks happy and colorful and inviting.

  4. Your house has really turned out lovely. Your paint looks so vibrant, and the piano fits in flawlessly! I’m loving your Lady sweater; that green is awesome, and the skull buttons rock.

  5. Your house is warm and cozy and bright and says a happy, creative family lives here! Glad your housewarming party was such a success. Would love to hear you play the piano — maybe you can upload a sound clip …

  6. I just love all of your paint choices. Everything goes so well and it’s so cheery and welcoming. I’m looking for a new kitchen color myself and I’m thinking along the lines of your palor (with the piano). Is that the “Delicious Berry” by Behr that you mentioned in another post? Thanks much!
