Sneak Preview

Filed under: Uncategorized — by InterstellarLass @ 9:18 am

I had poker at my house Friday night. Couple of girlfriends, green beer and guacamole. I didn’t start off too good, but my friend Judy and I ended up the last two in. We were tired, so we played Indian Poker to declare a final winner. One card on your forehead…

I spent the rest of the weekend on my bathroom. I don’t think you can see it real well, but this is the 80’s style wall paper that was in my bathroom to start.

Here’s the Sneak Preview. The Bathroom. It’s almost done now. Walls painted in Frost White, cabinets and trim painted in Beluga Black. Floor tile almost down. I’m a few pieces short, so I have to go pick some more up. Oh, and a new shower curtain too!

Update: Shame on me! I’ve gotta give some mad props to Nick! He picked up the old tiles off the floor and even had to use dangerous chemicals to get all the glue up. Poor thing almost burned his leg off with acetate, but he did an awesome job! Way to go baby!

Oh, and my lovely shawl is done too. I ended up using some chenille yarn that I already had for the trim. Still. Between the new knitting needles, the yarn and the time and labor, this is one expensive shawl!

I’m now working on crocheting this bag. I’ve already ripped it out twice. But I think I have the stitch down now. It helps when you start it right!


  1. Wow! The bathroom turned out fabulous!!! And the shawl is gorgeous!

  2. What a pretty bathroom. The tiles turn it into a relaxing atmosphere, condusive to the activities of the room 😛

    Or, the room will make it easy to poop.

  7. Okay, so I first read how you played poker with green beer and guacamole, then misread how you spent the next day “in” the bathroom. I guess I was just projecting what would’ve happened to me had I done the poker-with-beer-and-guac thing.

    Your results are much better!

  11. Indian poker is the best. And so is your bathroom 🙂

  12. You know, if you lick the back of that card it’ll stick. 🙂

    Now, ask me (and my kids) how I know that.
