Stairway to...

Quick update from painting central


I finished the bed.

de trap

First coat of paint is on the stairs. After I'm finished with this cup of coffee I'll get my but off the chair and go back to my applegreen hell. I'll be so proud when I'm finished.

And I do knit. In my sleep, that is.

Warning! Picture may blind you!

On the first nice day of the year I rarely take pictures of myself. I regularly have friends asking me to 'turn of the light'. My skin is really white and delicate, so I keep out of the sun a lot and use sunblock. I do get a sunny glow eventually, but it takes a whole summer to grow. Living in Holland doesn't really help either.

Odessa on the whitest girl alive

But, anyway, I finished Odessa and I've given it to the recipient. She's very happy with it and it fits her really well. Gives me a little comfort in times I don't think I can make anyone happy. I feel miserable and a failure, at times. Not allways, though. I'm working in my home a lot, lately. Trying to make it my place. I painted two closets (nightstands that don't fit in my bedroom) for the bathroom and I'm really happy with the result. Now, I'm painting my bed in a raspberry colorway.Contemplating on striking words to put on it. Maybe 'WTF?!

And... it works!

I'm so happy. So so happy. I have an internet connection and it appears to be good. Squee! I've been downloading podcasts, cd's, been going through ravelry....

So satisfying.

Just miss the camera right now, but there's one on it's way to me. It should arrive tomorrow, but I won't be home. So either I can pick it up monday or get it from the neighbours and have it tomorrow...
