It's been quite awhile since I've done a WIP post... in May I seemed to get out of synch with so much going on and I'm still trying to get back into a routine of some sort. Hopefully getting my biggest WIP done this week will help me get back on track!
Goodbye to this:
Yesterday I prepped for painting and primed the walls with the Gardz sealer for post wallpaper drywall. As is par for this project, it didn't go quite as planned. The sealer is extremely thin so I ended up brushing it on instead of rolling because it splattered everywhere - which I had read about in advance so that wasn't really a surprise. But I couldn't see the coverage very well straight on because even though it looks milky white in the can it goes on clear. So I did a lot of up/down the ladder and moving around at different angles to spot any dull spots I missed. Very time consuming!
This morning I'll put on a coat of regular primer and should be applying "Sunny Day" by late afternoon. I actually love painting (the prep work not so much) so this is the fun part. I should have pictures for a BIG Friday Finish!
Oh, and the sorting strings project? Looks like this at the moment...
Did you spy Tucker in that mess?
He is keeping my spot warm! By Friday I should be back to working on these...
Hopefully next week I'll be back in the groove and ready for a "normal" WIP Wednesday post from my beautiful new quilting room. Ooh La La!! I'm linking up to WIP Wednesday@Freshly Pieced.
