We are settled back again in our old pleasures, our familiar habits, even our old rooms. We have dismantled and packed away the nursery, returning a very eager preteen to her own space. She sweetly expressed her desire to keep the drapes and the patchwork closet curtain and grassy green Eleni's rug, but the cross stitched letters... no. Well, I will just have to find a space for them in my sewing room! I will. I promise.
Now Susan the cat holds court again in the sunniest room of the house. Ah, yes, the very best room. She knows it.
But truly I am glad to see Aria so happy in her own room again. She is delighted with the butcher block counter desk we've made for her, providing all the space she could want for books and books and studies. Honestly, she's likely to be up doing school work already while I am just getting my breakfast!
Their previously shared room, now again Liam's room, has just been refloored. I think it was contributing to some mold problems, actually. That's a good reason for carpet to go! There's nothing like wood floors to make a space seem new and clean, so clean! Happens to be better for playing Legos too.
His old flying geese curtains bit the dust in the great clean sweep of this space. Which is just as well, really, since they didn't match his proclaimed colors. New curtains, please!
And I know just the Flock for that job!
This pretty print from the Bluebird collection by Cotton & Steel is already nigh hard to find! I think it's safe to say that Bluebird has been a big hit. Probably lots of us already have some or have our eye on a pretty print or two. Well, be thinking of what you might make. There's a Bluebird Sew Off to come. Details soon!
psst... you can find Bluebird now at Mad About Patchwork in Canada and Pink Door Fabrics in the U.S.
