Don'tcha just love the smell of paint?

Well, not really. At least, not the paint we used in the bathroom. And it's gonna need a 3rd coat. *sigh*

It's a great colour, but orange is a lot like red. It's splotchy if you don't use a tinted primer. So a 3rd coat it is. I'll post a picture after the last coat. (hopefully this week)

We've got the office side of the renovation almost done. Just need to move one not so comfy chair out and bring a big comfy chair in, and the bookcase, and some storage units. lol

Then we just have the workroom side of the renovation to finish, which is 1 counter with storage underneath, one desk for the sewing machine and some shelves on the wall. And paint. :P

After that comes re-arranging the "new" guest room. Once we get all of DH's office stuff out of there.

On the stitching front, I've got to get fabbie ready for a RR that starts on the 14th. I know what theme I want and have the working copies printed and the fabbie picked out. I just have to cut and edge the fabbie and stitch the borders in.

I've ordered the last of the materials I need for Hummingbird Heart. Thankfully I had some money stored in my paypal account. With some concentrated stitching I should have it finished by Oct 25th, if not framed.

I should also have a job by the end of the week. It's only part-time, but I think it's more than minimum wage. Hopefully I'll be able to fill the oil tank before we really need to turn the heat on.

I guess that's it for now. Maybe next time I'll have pics.
