Last week I mentioned that my guestroom is going to be transformed. Well here is the plan –
- Repaint walls – got the colour swatches from the paint shop, I have a vague idea of what colour the walls will be.
- Get new curtains – the colour of the curtains will be determined by the colour of the walls.
- French distress all wooden furniture – this should be done next week.
- Make a new quilt – using various faded fabrics with flowers on, I’m thinking a friendship braid with appliqué flower panels in between.
- Crochet a new blankie for the end of the bed.
I have started the crochet blankie for the end of the bed. My inspiration for the blankie comes from Sandra from Cherry Heart “Put a slant on it” crochet cushion, following the link to find the pattern.
I’m using various colours from the Rowan Cashsoft dk range, using a number 4 crochet hook.
Hope to soon show you the newly painted furniture and maybe the beginning of the quilt, and a few more rows on the blankie.
That’s going to be super fab. Good luck with all that hard work. 😀
Your photographs are just so appealing, the colours, I just want to dive into those balls of wool.
Thanks for your kind words and visiting my buzy day blog.
I love the soft colour scheme. Your guest room will be beautiful.
Thank you Lucie

Thanks for your kind words and visiting my buzy day blog. I bought these fabric on my last trip to the State aat lolly quilt shop shipshewana indiana.
Thank you for sharing NikkiM! Your choices of colours are fantastic! I love soft colours. I look forward to seeing the room as it develops. How do you do things so quickly?
I travel with my husband a lot this gives me lots of crochet time!
Thanks for visiting my buzy day.
Thanks for coming by the blog and liking the post on pan de sal. I used to crochet loads because my paternal granny used to do that a lot and it was my way of remembering her and immersing myself in my memories. I haven’t had the chance to pick up a crochet needle in…gosh, nearly 3 years! I kind of miss it! Oh and I love your blog btw! 🙂
Thanks for your kind words.
Nice array of colors. I’m curious: what’s ‘french distress’?
Thanks. French distress is kind of a washed like white cream paint finish on furnisher.
Hope to show you before and after pic next Saturday.
Looking forward to it.
So true about the colours all together in your pics – I so want to dive in and make something with them all!
I can not wait to dive in to them!
The fabric samples look wonderful, can’t wait to see the quilt when it is finished
I can not wait to start! I’m fighting off a cold at the moment!
It will be wonderfully inviting. You will have to start turning visitors away, as everyone will want to come stay.
Beautiful pallette! I’m anxious to follow because my guest room could certainly use a facelift, too!
