1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Finished project! two-year-old girl's bedroom! (before and after pics!) on: September 21, 2008 08:54:51 PM
Here's our colour palet



From the doorway looking in



From the window looking out (notice the alcove)



The alcove



The closet



Took off all the face plates.  Check out these colors!







The light fixture



The doorknob that we'll be changing.




AFTER!

Entering the room.  Child-sized knobs for hanging her jackets and cardigans, and a new doorknob. 


The hidey-hole, which she already adores.  She knows how to get up, but she's having issues getting down.


Elodie loves dragons.  We got her one to store her toys.


The new curtains, which I love.  We got some knobby things to hold them back, too.


Elodie's new bed!  I'm so proud of my big girl for being in a big bed, but she sure looks tiny in it.






The closet.  Elodie has this thing with hiding in closets, so we put a bench in it for her.


The dresser, which is an antique, and the writing on the wall.  Another dragon, her frog prince, which is a pyjama holder, and a pretty lamp.


That's it!  Thanks for looking!

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Handspun Clapotis! on: August 05, 2008 01:08:46 PM
Yes, folks, I spun this up out of 100% Merino wool and then knit it into a Clapotis.  I'm rather happy with it, although the knitting part was SO boring.  Also, the brooch is a vintage piece out of my grandmother's collection.  More info on my blog!

8  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Master Spinner on: February 20, 2008 02:59:14 PM
Hey, hey, fibrey people!

Just curious, is anybody else doing the Master Spinner class this summer?  I'm starting my first year, and I'm SUPER excited!  Smiley

I'm not sure if it's available in many places in the States, but here in Canada, specifically Alberta, it's offered every summer in Olds at Olds College.  Smiley  Six years and I will be a master spinner!
9  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / My new favorite fiber place! on: February 15, 2008 11:50:07 PM
If you buy over $50 right now, they'll ship free in the US.

Great prices, about $30/lb, depending on your fibre of choice.

ps.  Mods, if this is in the wrong place, feel free to move it!  I just wanted to let people know about the shipping sale, as soon as possible.
