Ta-Da Moments

I am happy to reveal my newest design as you go knit. The Angled Modular Vest. I was planning on long sleeves but I tried this on with a Tee and it looked just right as a vest, and now I think I will be making a bunch of vests instead of long sleeve sweaters for this season. But after saying that, here is that finished long sleeved Pacific Grove pullover in cotton/acrylic that would work just fine in warmer weather, with cool nights.

For the last week we have been talking about moving the big queen sized bed out of Dave's loft bedroom and trading it for the twin guest bed. Yesterday was our moving day. It took some time to disassemble the fourposter, as Dave had painted it and reinforced it with screws that were painted in so was a job, just let me say. Finally we got it into the guest room assembled it and noticed in the brighter light of that room that it needed another coat of paint, so out came the brush and paint. Phew. It was an all day project, but the results are so satisfying. I am sure our guest room has just turned into a family cuddle spot, with a TV at the other end of the bed.

Yes, it is exactly the same paint that is on the walls. The quilt that was on that wall came down and now I have a really big space to fill with new artwork. Ha!

I went out to the garage shelves and found a comforter and bedspread, and was happy to play house for a while. After shooting these pics, the Dawgs and Squeaky Duck jumped right up, showing their approval of this arrangement.

Dave got his heart's desire, more space for his guitars, speakers, and  amplifiers etc. We are both getting the kind of bedrooms we always wanted. Mine is super girly and his is all boy. He will get one of the new quilts from this summer, a matching headboard recover (the pink will be retired) and maybe curtains.
Call Orkin!  We have bed pugs!

  1. Your Orkin comment about the dogs on the bed really made me laugh (and being a night person, I don't laugh easily this "early.") Thanks for such a funny start to the day!

    Dad? Dad, are you awake? Huh? Are you? Are you awake now? How about now?

    I love those puggles!

    I also enjoy how you blithely shift and change furniture and whole rooms around. My rooms seem only to 'fit' one way. :(

    What a great excuse to need to make another bed quilt!
    Will be watching to see what you whip up now.

  4. "Bed Pugs" *snort*

  5. I LOVE your sweater vest. The color combination and the design are outstanding. Also, your pugs are just too cute.

    The colors of the sweater and the bedroom are wonderful and happy! The bed pugs are very cute too!

  7. Wow, what a fantastic guest room - and my immediate thought was what's going over the bed??? Can't wait to see! ANd watch out for bed pugs! LOLOL!

  8. I laughed out loud at the bed pugs comment. I work in a hospital (Ohio) and am the "queen of bed bugs" because everyone calls me to do something when they find them. Yuck! Thanks for the laugh.
