Remodel

After flooding in our basement made it imperative to rip up the carpet, Bede redesigned the game room using three-dimensional mapping technology of Google SketchUp. While Bede comes from a family of proud DIYers, his particular style of renovation stems from his enjoyment of cartography as a hobby. Sometimes, people even pay Bede to design maps for them.

If you follow the link for the game room remodel, you'll notice the clownfish carpet in one corner. Bede used that icon to represent Lucia's new play area. This is what the carpet looks like in the IKEA catalog:


At Lucia's request, here is the clownfish carpet I made for her dollhouse:



No, I'm not crafty by nature (though I have admiration for people who are). I'm just sick from my petty cold. Other than emptying the dishwasher, sewing that dollhouse carpet was the one activity I completed today.

You REALLY should meet my mom. I HOPE she'll let me take pics of her sewing room, where she laid this really cool "sponge type" PUZZLE tile for when the kids come out here. Just AMAZING. Thank GOD they can't rip it up and put it back together like a REAL puzzle. Hmm...then again, that would be a GREAT Christmas gift to send back east for them, now wouldn't it? mwaa aah ahh. OH, how I love to torture them for moving...

Your little carpet is so cute!

I've been down with a horrible chest cold. I only manage to make it to work everyday, thusly, my house is a disaster.

Are you watching Buffy season 6? Very, very dark season. Probably the darkest one.

Nonny-- Yes, I am watching Season 6. It is pretty depressing, all the more because I know what's coming.
