Lilac Poncho and Red Room

This is my progress to date on my Rowan Poncho. I still love it. Have reached the boring part though where I decrease every 2 rows for the next 60 or so...But it should grow fast.

This evening I made the closet curtain. Red, eh? Do you notice the upper part of the wall looking a little lighter than the lower portion? I glazed on some gold on the upper wall. A little bit of the Teddy Bear theme is visible here. Winnie the Pooh collectibles on the little shelf.

This is the gold Oriental style bedspread that I found on sale at Walmart for $15 CDN. The red fabric is what the window curtains will be made out of. And the pillow is a bargain ($2 and I had to mend one seam) I found at Homesense last Christmas. Do you notice that if it is not hand made it is a bargain?

Thanks to all who gave me their opinion on the classes I am planning. I do believe that, thanks to your input, I will start with a felted bag. Thanks KT for suggesting the French Market bag from Knitty. I do believe that I will use that pattern since none like that has been done in a class at Myrtle Stn. Wool yet.

Work went well today. I have a small group so they were not very tiring at all. But, my goodness, no one has asked them to speak in indoor voices all summer long and they were all yelling their conversations! I spent a lot of time explaining that we were near each other so yelling was not necessary!

Morning is coming soon though so I must retire for the day. Goodnight,

From the looks of it, that room is going to end up looking like one of those really fancy rooms in a movie.

I'm not that brave.

What a rich, beautiful color!

Rich and luscious red. With the gold, it is so luxurious.

kt said...

Oh, you are so BUSY in that room!

Don't cha just love it when something picks you up and holds you in thrall that way??

I'm off to work on a stockinette square bunny for a friend who has a b-day in two days and is in the state next door. Yay for Priority mail!

Curtain remind me of arabic stories! Great!

The room is shaping up quickly! I love the combo of red and gold.

Charity said...

The room is lovelier and lovelier! Very ornate.

I'm glad to hear about the classes. The French Market bag always looks so smart, and it's like magic when it's all felted up :0)

Inside voices? Yikes, does no one even do that anymore? If my kiddies yell, they have to go outside :0) Standing rule, any season of the year.

I always find myself yelling "No yelling, that's my job!"

The French Market bag is so cute.

Hi from Mississauga! I found your website today from Yarnharlot. I have a red bedroom too, at my cottage. I had misgivings about the colour but I love it now. I'm a teacher--going back on Monday--and my house is a mess. I'm also an artist and sock knitter so I don't care about my house. Until my mother comes over!
