Update on Bathroom Re-do

I have a few pictures of the update on the remodeling of the master bath hubby has been working on. He's slowly but surely getting it done and our neighbor has been giving him a lot of help Okay, here's the latest and greatest updates:

New wall between master bedroom and bath

Shower stall is in with water connected but not drain.

Space next to shower is going to be an extra deep linen closet. Room in the back for things rarely used such as sheets to fit air mattress and sleeper sofa.

Floor got covered up after install with paper and cardboard to protect it before I got picture. This picture and the next are "hints" of what it looks like. It is linoleum.

The towel bars I bought will not work so it's back to the store with them. I bought some large hooks and we'll make do with them to hang our towels on. I've seen that idea somewhere before, maybe on hgtv.

This is all I have for now. Take care my friends.


Wrapping up My Dishcloth Obsession

I might be finished with my obsession with dishcloths for now. I can't promise not to sneak a dishcloth or 2 in every now and then, but I have started a non-dishcloth project and I will be focusing on it. I have started a shawl in a pretty yarn that I bought quite some time ago and had stashed away. Here's the dishcloth wrap-up and the start of the shawl and links to the patterns.

From scraps:


I had spent quite a bit of time looking for a casual shawl pattern that would look good with jeans and be easy to make and watch a movie at the same time. I didn't want the half granny square one that has an easy repetitive pattern. I did find The Simple Crochet Shawl and even though it was reminiscent of the half granny square shawl it was different enough to fit the bill. The color of the yarn will go great with jeans. I didn't get too much done last night but I hope to finish this fairly quickly and share pictures.

This morning I found a free kindle book: 16 Crochet Shawl Patterns: DIY Clothing You'll Love. You can get a Kindle for PC app, Kindle for Android, or Kindle for Mac apps for free and are great if you you don't have a kindle and would like to take advantage of these freebies. There were numerous other free crochet books for kindle too. Before checking out, double check and make sure the prices are still free.

Husband is sawing and hammering in the background. I will do a bathroom status update in a day or 2. Time for me to do something constructive here so later gator!
