I am so pleased with how easy this was! I have to thank Debbie Cook who puts fantastic tutorials on her blog Stitches and Seams. My dealer recommended that I get the Babylock Eclipse, you know the one with 28 spools of thread and it looks like a space ship. Thanks to Debbie, I knew to get 2 separate machines. I got the Imagine overlock and the BLCS coverhem. I keep them side by side, making it very easy to whip up a quick knit top. The dealer didn't even have the coverhem in stock; in fact they were puzzled that I wanted it as a separate machine.
And the dark olive works great with a cardigan I made a while back, so I am wearing it today.
So does the color in this room look incredibly pretty?? I know, I know!! It is scrumptious.
I have painted the WHOLE condo over the last 2 weeks. That is 2 coats of paint in 4 rooms.
It looks amazing. When I have completed the window treatments I will give you a little tour of the "after" pictures.
I highly recommend the design advice from This Young House blog. Only $60 for a phone call (I got the quickie decorating chat- I sent in pictures and Sherry called me with advice).
My expectations were way, way exceeded. I really don't do well with decorating decisions. I agonize, then I second-guess myself. This way, I just execute the plan and enjoy it.
