This is a silk only colorway and it is in my top 5 favorite HDT's.
This is not new but I had been out of size 20 for quite awhile. This colorway takes a lot of work so that is what took me so long to replace it.
This isn't new either but I haven't dyed this colorway in quite ahwile. This is a very dark and saturated colorway...even more so than the photo portrays. It is also a bit tricky to achieve this level of color saturation.
This IS a new colorway but not a very original name LOL! It's very soft and pretty.
This is the big project that I mentioned I was working on. I am re-doing what used to be the guest bedroom. Since we rarely ever get guests I decided to put the room to better use as my....WAIT FOR IT..... tatting room! UH HUH! You heard me right! Whoo hoo!
What is the sense in having a room that you keep perfect and never use in the occasional event someone comes to visit? Besides, it will still double as guest quarters as long as those guest don't dare steal my tatting...LOL!
The former owners used this room as a child's room, so as you would expect, there were all kinds of stains in the carpet and holes and marks on the walls...that kind of thing.
I really wanted to get this room finished before our belongings arrived...(the date of which keeps getting pushed back...but that's another story). So all by myself, I painted the walls a lovely "Fresh Spring" green, ripped out the carpet, the carpet padding, the million bazillion staples in the floor and then sealed the floor. Next was the tedious installation of the bamboo flooring. It really isn't a bad project when someone is helping you, but doing it alone sucks big time!
It was all worth it in the end though. I love that it's a hard wood but from a renewable source...and isn't it pretty? ...and it is not expensive...BONUS!
All I have left is the trim...but I will wait for help on that project.
What do you all think?
...oh...and that little furry kid in a cat suit is Raku...I think he aproves!
