This morning after I got my hair cut, Mr. Squash and I went to Seattle to Rejuvention to pick lights for the kitchen at the Squash House. What a wonderful store! They had just enough to select from so that you weren't overwhelmed by choices! Plus I had spent a lot of time perusing their catalog and checking out the website before we made the trip. I pretty much had in mind what I wanted when we walked in the door, and sure enough, with a couple of minor changes, it didn't take long to place the order! Two of the light on the left will be on the kitchen ceiling, and the the smaller pendant will hang over the kitchen sink. It was really hard to get the finish (brushed nickel) to come out on the website, so I substitued polished chrome, which comes out closer when viewing it on the web. But as you can see, neither look the same, so you just have to use your imagination! The house was built around 1948-50, so this is a small concession to 50's style. Mr. Squash wants to put a chrome table and chair set in there as well, but I'm standing firm against it! I grew up with one and never liked it then!
Yesterday I finished another Winter Wonderland block - this is called Cut the Corners. My flying geese ruler wasn't the correct size for this block, unfortunately. I cut out two more and hope to finish them this afternoon, but it's growing later and it may not happen until tomorrow. I do feel like I'm getting closer and closer to the half-way mark!
