All about color....

So, my lovely niece told me about a color, bedford gray, that she had used, I had never seen it, but knowing what amazing taste she had, went and had it mixed without knowing what it was, its beautiful, won't tell how bad this bath was before, NOTHING worked, think it works now. It needed some funky art, was going to buy some, then realized, gosh, think I can do something wierd, forget how much fun painting is. The gorgeous vase on the counter is from the same amazing neice....






Nature know just the right shades, this is my most favorite posession, my tree, it is just perfect.













This is the most perfect shade of blue, dragonscale mitts from purlbee, sort of love them, the pattern is just so pretty and old fashioned. Need to finish the second.....cause there is more yarn waiting to be mitts too!

I've been seeing those types of mitts everywhere. How difficult are these to make? Not that I've got the time to make anything like that just now. But... just asking, in the event that I actually finish up the sewing projects I've got going right now, and possibly a break from the table cloth I'm crocheting... ;-/

The bathroom looks fantastic. I do love that grey. It almost doesn't matter that the vanity used to be a honey oak..... Your art work is fun and I dig those towels! I also need some of those hand warmers. Need them badly.

Awesome shade in your bathroom. I would love to make those hand warmers. What is the name of the pattern? Are you on Ravelry so I can go have a look?

Also, I think your original artwork and towels are fantastic. I found your blog through your sisters sewing blog!

Hi Marianne! Thanks for your nice comment on the art and gloves, I am on ravelry, but have been very slow about getting pics up, need to get better at that, the pattern for the mitts is on purlbee.com, its the dragon scale pattern, I did a extra pattern round both before and after the thumb gusset, a really fun knit, let me know how you like it!
