Energy Restored!

THAT'S IT! YOUR NOT GETTING BACK ON THIS THING TIL YOU SHOW ME SOME LOVE! WORK, COMPUTER, SLEEP! THAT'S ALL YOU EVER DO! WHERE'S THE LOVE?
WHERE ISSSSSSSS THE LOVE???


Project Spectrum paint job! Sorry for the crap photo's but there wasn't any natural light left!
The colour is called Canyon Cove, its a butter gold, yellow colour!

Well siry! I think I'm back into the swing of things! We had a very restful weekend which I think helped alot and I got a crazy notion in my head today at work that I was going to go home and paint the hallway.......... and thats just what I did. Saw Moose off to work and then I ran over to Kent to get my paint *which I'd been eyeing for a while* and away I went. I got it primed and the first coat on so I'm pretty happy with my progress, and after all that I'm STILL not tired! The hallway and archway that I painted is joined to the kitchen so there won't be much left to paint once I decide on my cabinets*still have no idea what I want*.

And Yes I know I missed a bit! Just incase any of you smarty pants try to pull that one! Moose is going to do the edging tomorrow!

On a knitting note : I do have some knitting news. I got mum to sew up a sweater for me *bats eyelashes* she got it all but one sleeve so I told her i'd be sure to have the other one sorted for when she comes to visit :) I despise sewing! I was motoring away on the sweater #2's front, the last part I needed to do. Got up to the the shoulder shaping and realized i'd forgot to put arm holes in it DOH! I was so busy working that dang star pattern! So rippity rip it goes.

Hee hee - great Sockies photo!! The computer jealousy, oh yes - we have that here.

Fun paint job! Do you want to come do my bathroom when you're done with your hallway?? :)

hehehe The cat!!! Toooooo cute. I agree with Chris - it's definitely computer envy going on there!! heh

OH. I. Love. The. Hallway. Paint. LOVE LOVE LOVE that paint. Nice that Moose will do the edging for you.

And the armholes. heh Too bad. Sorry you had to rip, but it's good practice, right?? Right??? heh So I guess you found the information you needed about how to work the chart, eh? I just started my first charted pattern (lace, not intarsia) last night. It's not as confusing as I thought it would be. YET.

Love the paint colour. Like you, I do not like the sewing up bit, but unfortunately there is no one here to bribe into doing it for me! Is spring slowly arriving in NB. I am originally from NS and now live on Vancouver Island. I can remember the long, long springs some years! Enough to make a girl go out and paint something!

Hi Peg! Spring is slowly getting here, it seems to come and then winter grabs it by the neck and chucks it to the back of the line again so I don't know when we'll get some proper spring weather.
What part of NS are you from? What's your project at the moment?

Your cat is too funny. Ilove the paint color, after seeing your hall and your living room my walls look so white!!! but the thought of painting makes me so tired.
