Happy New Year!

Where to start? It's been kinda busy around here. I guess I'll start with the stitching and go on from there. Here's the other Fire Wing Designs piece I did for my kids for Christmas. This one is for Josh have them both to them unframed as soon as I took them out of the qsnaps and they loved them!

Since I finished this, I pulled Chatelaine's Caribbea back out of the basement and I'm almost done with part 12 of the second corner. I'm pushing for a finish soon with this cause I really, and I mean really, want to start her Winter Watergarden. It's all kitted up and ready to go except I haven't cut fabric yet. That is going to be my reward for finishing Caribbean and that is why the fabric isn't cut and ready to go. It would be way too easy to start then.

Here's where I was a couple of weeks ago with Jakob's room. I came home from work one night and decided to get the ceiling done so I could move onto walls and paint. OMG!! Doesn't seem like a lot of work and it really wasn't, I just had my arms above my head for the best part of about 2.5 hours and I hurt the next day!
Last Friday since I was off work, I painted the ceiling and walls. The green is Spearmint Froth from Dutch Boy and it is really bright. I'd hoped it would dry a little darker. The stripe is Midnight Swim by Dutch Boy and I picked the color hoping to tone down the green.

Here's the curtains I picked up yesterday. I was looking for something masculine since Jakob is already 8 and the teenage years are coming.
And here's the view from just beside the door. We lined the closet with cedar and put an adjustable closet organizer in there so it can change as Jakob's needs change.
Now, I hear laundry calling. Then I need to go clean up some of the stuff on Josh's floor so I can at some point reorganize that.

Happy New Year to you and your boys.
The new room looks great with this colours. They also fit very well for a teenager boy in my opinion.
Working such a long time with your arms above your head and do a lot of beautiful stitching afterwards: pffff! That will hurt for some time.
