Painting

I have been painting both watercolors and painting my bedroom and the guest room.  Yesterday I painting bubbles with my daughter, Jenny.  We had alot of fun!  I would make my bubbles a little more translucent though next time.


Tomorrow I hope to paint some more.  I find painting very relaxing!

I painted my bedroom and I really love how it turned out.

The paint made this drab all cream room so different with just a pop of these colors!

Then I painted the Guest Room last weekend.  I used Sherwin Williams Rainwashed.  The paint had primer already in it, so it went on smoothly.





Extremely happy with this color!  I will be painting the guest bathroom with this color this weekend.  I also have a niche in the hallway and I'm going to paint the back of it with this color too.

I downloaded alot more audible/chirp books to listen too while I am painting and knitting.  As a matter of fact today my yarn was delivered!  I am going to start knitting with this tomorrow.  I bought 3 beautiful skeins of Apple Blossom from Expression Fiber Arts.  They are a local yarn company and I have bought from them before.  Along with the yarn skeins, I received 3 apple charm markers and a lovely quote from Jim Carrey. 

"Flowers don't worry about how they're going to bloom.
They just open up and turn toward the lgiht and that makes them 
beautiful"  

Jim Carrey

This yarn reminds me of Monet's home in Giverney, the lily pond.  I am going to make a shawl called Palette also from Expression Fiber Arts.  I love that I can support my local yarn company during the very tumultuous time.

Everyone be safe and well during this time!  Hugs to you all!

Sherri, I LOVE your bedroom wall color. I may have to imitate you, my friend! :) Looks like you are in a beach house!

I love the colors you chose for the bedrooms. So peaceful and calming. And thanks for sharing your art and yarn projects. I love seeing them all and can't wait to see your shawl take shape with that gorgeous yarn!

Your rooms look great with the new colors. Love the colors of your yarn too!


Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
