How many shades of khaki can there be? WAY TOO MANY! With names like Outerbanks, Barcelona Beige, Urban Putty, Safari Vest, Tatami Mat, Gobi Tan, Woven Straw . . . Do paint makers have staff that do nothing but make up paint names?
For the last couple of years I have wanted to switch out my hooking room with my larger guest bedroom. I wanted to paint before making the switch, but finding/making the time never happened. I now have the problem called TMW (too much wool) and the hooking room is totally out of control no matter how often I try to clean it. (It's a terrible problem to have, you know!) I finally
sweet talked, cajoled, bribed, hired my son to do it. Which leads to the shades of khaki. I want something very neutral as a backdrop because I hope to finally get some rugs hung. J (short for Jason) likes Sherwin-Williams paint, so I've finally decided on Outerbanks for the walls and Urban Putty for the ceiling.
The guest room is almost emptied and boy was there a lot of stuff. It is now in the bathroom, my bedroom, the upstairs landing area . . . sigh. I really don't like living in chaos!
On a neatness scale of 1 to 10, I am normally about a 9 (at least in my mind!), so I can't believe this is what the hooking room looks like and I am really showing it to you!
I did finish one of my little pumpkin mats. It ended up being about 10" x 12". I like the look of the beading though I still find it awkward to hook.
I used wool to bind the edges
It is a blustery, cold, rainy day here on Ohio's north coast. I hope and pray that Hurricane Sandy does not wreak havoc on those of you to the east.
Thanks for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
