Cross Stitch and Craft Room

Thanks  so much to those of you who looked at my UW Arboretum pictures.  Really rainy weather is predicted so I'm glad we made that trip.  The huge Northwest Flower Show is this week-end and we are hoping to go.  We wanted to go on Fri.  but "sideways rain" is predicted.  We would have a bit of a walk from the ferry to the bus so we aren't sure, maybe we'll wait till Sun.  It is always an incredible show.
I'm getting close to finishing my "Bunny& Co. " project.  I have changed the colors a lot because I wanted to use what I have.  It has ended up a bit too pastel but I love the design.
We have started a big project to improve my craft room.  We have lived in our house for 8 years and that room is exactly the same as it was when we moved in.  I have been inspired by the craft rooms that many of you have shown on your blogs.  The dear SBA has been looking for projects to do since he finished the kitchen so this is a perfect one for him.   I don't usually stitch in that room because I stitch in the evening in the family room while the SBA watches TV. I do sew in that room however and I need a place to put all my "stuff". I will show our progress on the blog.

 Sorry for the wrinkles.  As you can see, I just have the right side and top border to finish.

 I used a fuzzy thread on the bunny's tail.  It and the egg show up much better on the real  project than in the picture. 

Craft room, more accurately the junk room!!

 Old builder white paint. Cheap builder trim.

 Step one, empty out the room, add nice trim and paint a warm color.

Much better but not great! Our next step in to get some furniture.  I want shelves with room for fabric and baskets. 
Thanks so much for joining me today.  I hope you are all having a great week!
