The idea of spending one more winter in a dirty , yellowed an gloomy main room was simply unbearable to me , so i made the decision to repaint and do it all by myself, and i tell you , it was a trip to hell.
NOTHING could be stored elsewhere, as the whole appartment is not bigger than 535 sq.feet.
The whole operation took 12 days, and girls, i'm so proud......
The ceiling had not been painted for 32 years , and is now perfectly white, the walls, white with a zest of grey, and i indulged myself with painting with THE LITTLE GREEN, expensive , but so easy to work with...
My fathers desk, so a family heirloom, is now where the bookshelves stood before , and i covered that wall with a toile de Jouy.
The whole thing did of course not resolve the eternal fight against clutter, but anytime i enter here, i feel the immense satifaction of having accomplished something nice.
The rest of the appartment is screaming for attention too, and i will go on with it, but that will be far more easy than what's behind.
I'm making a frugal quilt from Bonnie Hunter's first book.
Under the that page you see the primitive sawtooth star i've made for QUILTMANIA 8 years ago, the same block.
I Prefer Bonnie's sophiticated setting and need to make only five more blocks
The blocks are made with fabric from working man's shirts, gathered here and there in fleamarkets and junk sales.
The fabrics are soft but much heavier than regular cottons, look like homespun, and the colors are muted.
I spend 5 euros on the dark brown back ground fabric, and have enough for the backing.
Leftovers for a cribquilt.
Will in Paris, chilly and rainy here today.
