Work in Progress Wednesday 160

Hi everyone. Happy Hump day. With the holiday here in the US Monday, I almost forgot it was Wednesday! Crazy. This week is flying by and unfortunately it's the week I decided to deem my "vacation" week. What do I do on my "vacation"?

I paint my craft room (after I did some work). Am I insane? The fun thing is, because it's my craft room I'm REALLY excited about it. This picture isn't a great representation of what the true color is. It's more of a sky blue. The color is actually called "Electra". Cool, right? The only thing that ruined it was the paint guy at Home Depot said "Yeah, like Carmen, right?" Where the nerd in me was picturing Electra from Daredevil. HA!

Have I mentioned my craft room is going to be Doctor Who themed?!? Here is my Tardis Blue wall next to the newly painted other wall. As you can see, this is very much a WIP post as the painter's tape is still up (seriously, why do I bother with that stuff. It still gets paint under it). I painted the Tardis blue wall awhile ago (as you may remember) but didn't have time to paint the rest until now. Tuesday I finished 1 1/2 walls, so only 1 1/2 left! Unfortunately, I have to move my HUUUUGGGEEEE work table to do one, along with my sewing cabinet to do one wall, and the other I have to move a bed and nightstand. Bleh. Now you can see why I painted this wall today. All I had to move was my chest full of yarn (which probably weighs a good 75 lbs it seems). Once I get the painting done, new blinds/drapes and some pictures up, I'll show you more of it! Don't the colors look great with the door/floor??!! I'm totally in love with how it's turning out.

I hope to start my next knitting project this week too. I'll be making Plume by Lisa Mutch with these two colors. The one on the left is Black Licorice and the one on the right is Cinnamon Bear, both Yummy fingering. I can't wait to get started! I actually did start it last Friday, but I was away from home and forgot stitch markers. I tried thole straw wrapper thing, but it just wasn't working out. It was too fiddly since it was just the start. I'm making it as a sample for my booth for next month's Vista Fiber Fiesta in Vista, CA. I better get a move on!

That's it for me today. I hope you have a great rest of the week!

  1. I love that blue! Looks great and very worthwhile having such a great room for crafting.

  2. What awesome colours for your craft room, I look forward to seeing your Tardis complete ;)

  3. My husband would be in heaven if I said I wanted to decorate the craft room like a tardis...or with a tardis...or anything that might have something to do with a tardis. Alas, I just can't jump on that bandwagon :-) But, the blue is lovely!

  4. I love the yarn you've chosen for your Plume. They are fabulous. It's going to look great. I also think your craft room is going to look great. By the way my mind went to Daredevil first too.

  5. Love the yarn. Can't wait to see what your project is going to look like. Wow what fantastic colours for your craft room.

  6. Declicious color combo for your Plume. Can't wait to see it!

  7. Love the wall color and the yarn colors! You remind me that I have SO much painting to do! Hopefully this it's out to mow the lawn! Toodles!

  8. My friends would love that room, they are Doctor Who daft :) Your yarn is looking lovely, can't wait to see you work with it!

  9. A tardis themed room? instant love!!!!!!
