I have been on my summer vacation for three weeks now and I haven't been blogging much. One week left before I have to go to work again. I have been knitting and cross stitching. A couple of secret projects and a cap for my husband. I think the thought of the autumn has it's affect since I've taken my knitting needles out again. The cap is the "Skull Cap" from the book Son of a Stitch 'n Bitch. I used the same yarn as in the book, Dalegarn's Baby Ull (100% wool). I am not entirely satisfied with the decreasing in the end but my husband likes the cap so I try not to be bothered about it. :) The man in the pictures is my dear husband.
Closer look on the details.
Our renovation has been ready for a long while and here are finally some pictures. Here my father is putting up the wallpapers in our hallway.
This is how the bedroom looked like after the old wallpaper was removed.
This is how the hallway looks now. We still have to hang the painting (painted by my husband's twin brother).
And this is how the bedroom looked right after we got it done. We still need to put the curtain rod and the curtains on. I ordered new curtains and I hope they arrive soon. I also bought some of the same fabric and I'll sew some pillows from it to put on the bed.
I am quite pleased with the end result. :)
End of the first quarter
