you can't have just one.
Life's too short to have only one hobby. Why not try them all?

New Guest Room--Phase 1
Well, the priming and painting is done, and the bed is set up so I will have a place for people to sleep this weekend. Right now, the room is pretty boring because there's nothing on the walls and the quilt I want to make is still just pieces of fabric in the garage but the room is definitely on its way.
(Ignore the quilt on the bed--it really doesn't look that great with the wall color but I needed the warmth of another blanket.)
The color is prettier than the photo shows. It's a light greenish yellow called Summer Resort. I laid out the quilt fabrics I bought and I like the way they look--I really like the orange and lime green ones the best so I might change directions with the quilt and go with only those two colors. Another idea is to go with aqua and green--there is a nice quilt at Target with those colors that I think would look good and then I wouldn't have to make a quilt...decisions, decisions. Too many to make right now. :)
Wish I didn't hate returning things so much because then I'd just go buy the quilt at Target and try it out in the room to see what I think. I might do it anyway, since I have to go to Costco and get party food tomorrow.
