Not much time for stitching

Last Friday we closed on our new house in Florida. Since we still have yet to sell our home in Georgia we are only moving the stuff from the rental place which is good since there is much to do a the new place. Mostly painting and the first room on the list was my main sewing room. It was a dreadful brown color but now is a wonderful shade of white that looks just like Kona Snow. I have always had a lot of color on my walls but I am feeling the white and am going to use lots of this white. It is White Dove by Benjamin Moore and truly brought the room to life.

I have stitched a few more baskets so at least I am making a little sewing progress.

Great news on your new house and I will keep my fingers crossed that the old one will sell very soon. I love white walls (or a very slight off white) as I love bright rooms. Love the green baskets. Are you appliqueing them by hand?

Glad that your sewing room was at the top of the list for things to fix at the new house! That is a pretty white (and so beats that brown). And glad you've been able to keep sewing a bit--the baskets look great! Hope your house sells soon so you can get everything into one location (and have time to sew more)! :)

great news. I am sure you are excited about moving in and hopefully your house will sell soon. How many coats did it take to cover the brown?

Darling baskets and the baby quilt is so cute!

Congratulations on the new house. I agree, the white will be beautiful and a perfect backdrop for all your gorgeous applique.
I love those baskets!

Just catching up tonight...and you're absolutely right, the real estate photos didn't do justice to that unmentionable shade of brown! Glad to see it covered by a lovely drift of Kona Snow. (Harhar...geddit?)
