I have decided on a color scheme for my living room. I have a runner on the antique trunk that has Mexican colors of orange, red, yellow and acid green, and those will be my accent colors. The couch (which is a neutral golden tan color) came with extra cushions covered in a lame patchworky fabric, so I must recover the cushions in the new colors (maybe knit some covers), and I started a more zippy afghan. No doubt about it, he really uses the other afghan when he watches TV in the evenings. The new afghan will have a black border, varigated red-orange-yellow body, and an acid green center for each square. I made up the first square and it is beauteous. This will be the second afghan I have ever made.
I have been talking with my computer consultants (mostly Melissa) about getting another blog site so that I can post my knitting and sewing pictures. So this may be coming in the future. I need some kind of mannequin to put my garments on, and I remembered that back in the day, my brother Eric used to have an old headless torso in his room. I called my dad to see if it was still there, but alas, he said it left the house decades ago. It was a good idea, though. I would have painted it black. I will have to see what I can scrounge up.
Today I am going to use my Best Recipe cookbook to make Pasta e Fagioli, an Italian bean soup. Thursday is soup day.
