The bathroom, which formerly sported metallic gold vinyl wallpaper, now blooms with sunflowers and bluebonnets.
This is the corner next to the former bathtub, now home to washer and dryer. If you were standing here, the appliances would be on your left.
This is the last room to be changed from "the Wilcox house" to "Bobbe Nolan's painted house." I've told my son that when I'm gone he can just reduce the cost of the house to accomodate repainting--it's not the sort of place you can "stage" for an easy sale.
And this is what you see as you walk into the room.
It's a nice change, makes me smile whenever I go in there.
Things are still in moderate shambles around here. The butcher block for the new counter takes up the front hallway (we just step around it). Carpentry continues in the kitchen. Studio is a mess, though I have managed to return a fair amount of stuff to the storage room. '
I did finish my rice bag quilt, titled "To Feed the World", and I'm pretty happy with it.
This is made from woven plastic rice bags--an adventure to sew on!--which I painted with growing rice plants and then quilted. Not sure what will happen with this piece, but I wanted to try something new. Now that it's finished I have returned to an old rescue project that I have had in storage for several years. More about that later as it becomes more photogenic.
Time now to head for Austin to pick up Gee Gee, returning from Tampa. It's a cold (below freezing), windy, rainy afternoon, so I want to take my time on the road.
