You have not seen much fabric or sewing content here for quite awhile. Ray and I are reminding ourselves not to become the kind of grandparents who talk of nothing but their darling grandchild. It is tempting to make this blog "All Sofia, All The Time" but there actually are other things going on in my life. Do you remember the "before" pictures of our main floor bathroom? You can see them here. We finally finished that project.
This was a little plan I put together before to get an idea of color and pattern. I ended up using a little bit darker taupe on the bottom half of the walls.
Here are the "after" pictures. I am pretty happy with the results.
I could not find a shower curtain that I really liked, so I made one. (heads up—this is the sewing and fabric content) It is made from a natural colored cotton and stenciled with a design I adapted from a book of Arts and Crafts motifs. It worked out even better than I expected and may be my favorite thing in the room. We bought the rug in Oaxaca on our recent trip to Mexico.
My flea market find painting of the pretty lady in the hat still looks great with the new color scheme, so she is back up in her accustomed spot.
