Improved enough to start painting the laundry room. The flooring is ordered and the installers will be here next Wednesday. I hate to paint and I don't trust No. 38 with a paint brush. Most of it ends up running down his arm and everywhere except the walls. And I end up doing all the trim work and the cleaning up so I might as well do it all. Here's the before picture of the laundry room:
Pretty bland. I ordered a new washer and once the floor installers arrive, they will take these two units out. I got blue-grayish paint but it looks more blue than gray.
But, it's a laundry room. I'll call it "Laundry Day Blues". Maybe I could make a mini quilt to jazz it up. How about Sunbonnet Sue in blue embroidery work hanging clothes on the line? Hmmm. I got two coats of paint on and now have to wait until the appliances are out before I can finish. One good thing about this project is that I didn't have to worry about paint drips on the floor. And, my back is still holding up.
We had a hard frost again last night in Minnesota. The juice in the hummingbird feeder was froze.
The bird bath was solid ice
Some of the perennials didn't look too good, either. Oh well, Mother Nature knows what's she doing. Just showing us who's boss.
Maybe after another round with the paint brush I can get into the sewing room. I'm dying to get started on the FMQ for April with instructor Don Linn. I got his book Sophisticated Stitches from the library yesterday which is chock full of designs. I might have to buy this book.
