First a Tropical Delight flower.
This was a challenge.
I had trouble on round 7 (dark sage leaves) and 8 (autumn red buds) but after frogging many times I figured out I crocheted the leaves wrong. Once I got them right round 8 fell into place.
I have round 9 still to do (in dark sage).
This out of print pattern can be found (here) along with fantastic photo tutorial by Laurel Craft (here).
My Ravelry project page with my details is (here).
Now onto the our decor.
I'm having fun working our designer, Susan, on our window treatments.
She was assigned to us by our builder while we were having our home built.
She's been wonderful to work with and has become a dear friend.
Susan helped me with selecting our custom drapes and fabric shades for our bedroom windows.
This fabric shade is in our lower level bedroom.
This is an egress window that allows firefighters to get in and home owners out in case of a fire.
I had all the window treatments lined with black out fabric.
And here is how the sheer panels look in the Great Room.
We had motorized cellular shades installed on most of the windows in our home.
Boy are they nice.
We also put drapes and sheers in another bedroom.
Photos for that room will come later.
Now I have to think how I want the remaining windows done.
I'm thinking of maybe white fabric with a touch of red panels in the dinette/hearth room and white fabric with a touch of blue panels in the dining room.
Not sure what to put in Hubby's Den.
My Hubby's brother, his wife and their son emptied out our last storage unit and moved all our boxes and stuff into our home last night.
It was such a big help to us.
So, we still have some boxes to unpack…more knick knacks, vases and my collections.
But I can take my time.
There is no hurry.
Thanks for visiting.
I will be taking a little break from blogging but I will be back.
