Oblique Fronts

oblique fronts3


I'm getting very creative on the blog titles, no? Yesterday I decided to do what women do when we get bored - I rearranged the furniture. It wasn't so much that I was bored, but that I was tired of it being where it was and since it needed moving so I could vacuum it and where it had been sitting, why not rearrange it? I got Caleb to help me with it and he thought it was a whole lot of fun to redo the room. Finn thought the vacuum cleaner needed a lot of barking at, so he helped too. By the time we got it all done and arranged and put back together (why are there always goldfish crackers in the sofa?) we were pretty wiped out, so last night I just worked on the Oblique fronts some more. Since I wrote down the row numbers for the shaping from the back, all I have to do is pay attention to the specific row numbers where I have to decrease for the waist so it really doesn't take much mental exertion on my part.

Then there was also the fact that I had to keep getting up so I could reposition Finn's bed (four times) because with the new furniture layout, I wasn't sure where he would want it. Just because his bed fits certain places and looks nice there, doesn't mean the dog thinks that's a good place to sleep. We finally settled on a corner between a chair and the sofa where he can sit near me, but be out of the way. It's also by a window so I can open it for him during the day and he can watch things outside.

Good for you! I love freshening up rooms!!! I have been in the process of repainting my entire house for the third time in 3 years. I love to paint and put up fresh window treatments. ! So I am awaiting a new D.R. table today and rocker for my L.R. and bed for my daughters room. Tomorrow - painting the D.R. - Yeah! I love that others are motivated. Your sweater is gorgeous!

By all means, find the best spot for Flynn ... you wouldn't believe (or maybe you would) all the little places with blankets or beds for Peanut to sleep - depending on her mood. And we have a small piece of fleece that gets moved with the sun in the winter so she can sleep in the sun in comfort! What we do for these babies!!

I love rearranging furniture! Too bad I don't have much space in which to arrange it at the moment.

And cheers to Finn for helping! He's such a good boy.
