I bought this new chair a few weeks ago for the living room. It's more comfortable than the chair we had there and it fits in with the style better. I moved that one into the master bedroom.

The main reason it's been so long, is that I've been working on this blanket. It was fairly easy to do, but the different stitches involved made it go so slow. The pattern doesn't show up great in pictures, but it's the fanciest thing I've knitted so far.

I redid the small third bedroom. I used the same creamy light brown that we did my Mom's bedroom in last year. I loved it so much I found a room to use it in. Mostly, I used decorations from other rooms to update it. I had to remove the border that was in there. I like that it makes the room look a little bigger.

I always seem to get projects in clusters. I've wanted a coat closet for years, but I only have a tiny utility closet on the whole first floor and I need a place to store the vacuum and tools. My Mom suggested just getting a cabinet for that stuff. It was a little easier said than done, but I finally found a cabinet that would accommodate the tall handles of the mops and such. I will be painting the door and front an off white so it's not as bright and it was fairly cheap so if I ever find something better it's no big loss. Of course I had to rearrange the computer room and wall decor to fit it in there so that created more projects. I still have to touch up the wall paint.

This is my first (maybe last?) attempt at knitting a sweater. It came out pretty good for a first attempt. It's nothing fancy, just has ridges in it that are a little hard to see in the pictures. I have a ton of this yarn that was leftover from a fancy hooded sweater my Mom made for me. I still have some more of this yarn left. I wonder what I should make with it next...
