weekend plans…

I’m so happy it’s Friday! It seems like it was a long week, and I’m looking forward to the weekend to get caught up on some sewing projects. I’ve been working on a few patchwork baby quilts – this one was a custom order and is already happy at home with a new owner…

There will hopefully be a couple of other patchwork quilts out of various fabric lines for the shop, as well as one for a charity raffle, which I’ll tell you more about soon.

This weekend we’re also hoping to give a fresh coat of paint to at least one bedroom. We’re considering gray for the baby’s room, but there are so many grays that I’m having trouble selecting one! In an attempt to get that room ready, I’ve also been moving my fabric and will be doing some destashing. I’ve listed a few items already, and more will be listed as I have time! You can find them in my shop.

Hope you all have time this weekend for a little sewing! :)

    We’ve been pouring over greys as well for our dining room. Look forward to seeing which one you choose!

    At Home Depot, in the Martha Stewart line of paints, Dolphin is a really great grey. It looks dark when you are putting it on the walls, but when it dries it is the perfect shade of grey and it goes with every color you can imagine.

    Love the quilt. I’m sure the owners are very happy with it. Grey can be a “cold” color, so be careful.

    Happy painting! I loved decorating for my daughter’s nursery, and now I can’t wait to decorate her “big girl” room!

    grey is a hard shade to pick out at a paint store….

    i HIGHLY recommend getting those little paint testers. When my boyfriend and i were going to paint out living room grey i think we tested 8 different shades of ‘grey’ (and TWO trips to home depot!). We ended up picking out one that was a bit more beigy and less blue/grey and i think it turned out well. it’s called Sculptor’s Clay by Behr Ultra.

    what a lucky person to receive this quilt! Serious FMF envy! Have fun painting and sewing this weekend! Paint colors are SO hard to choose, so I can empathize.

    If you want a lighter grey, might I suggest “mercury glass” by Martha Stewart. I don’t know if it’s still available, but the formula could be found online. It is a lovely sort of pussy willow shade that coordinates beautifully with other colours. I used it for my back bedroom a few years ago and still love it. Perfect for a baby, I think.

    Beautiful quilt. We have an 8 month old and painted his room gray. We LOVE it!

    I love LOVE Coastal Villa by Valspar (it doesn’t actually look grey on the paint chip, but totally looks like a warm grey on the walls). If that is took dark, I really like the color two steps lighter, the color I painted my sewing room, something like oatlands subtle taupe (I can’t remember) but it’s a really beautiful color. Have a happy weekend!

    I recently painted my sewing room a lovely blue-gray shade. Twilight gray by Behr. Can’t remember the number off the top of my head, usually can, but we just painted the entire house…
    It goes great with the white in there, and would be great for a boy.
    Side note, I had some left over paint, painted the laundry room that color too, and it’s working great with yellow accents…

    I’m really curious about what your house looks like – not that I need pictures or anything – your privacy is yours. But you use such a mix of colours that I wonder how it all fits in with your home. Do you have blonde furniture or dark wood? Is your style modern or antique? Are your walls white or do you mix it up? Just curious. Love your site. sheila
