I have been having fun with the Facebook TBT (Throw Back Thursday) trend. I have been sharing some of my older patterns on Thursdays that some of my newer followers may not have seen yet. Really I have just been doing this on Facebook and Twitter, but this week, it is going to spill on over here. This is today’s TBT pattern:

heart-bunting-on-our-stairs

So, how does that relate to today’s blog post? Well, Kyla LOVES those hearts. So much so that she has asked if they can be in her new room. I think I will be making a few off~shoot patterns from this pattern for her room. Hearts and crows. I see lots of both in my future. As I told you a few days ago, we are working on Kyla’s room. I’m still not sure if she will be willing to leave Vada’s room, but at least she will have the option!

Kyla-Room-Reno-Door

Here is her door…in the hall. I still need Doug to carry it out to the garage so that I can strip it and sand it outside.

Kyla-Room-Reno-getting-started

Here is what the room looked like when I started out last night. Well, after removing the plaster that had bubbled down from the leak we had after Sandy.

Kyla-Room-Reno-crazy-paper

As I started removing all the trim, I discovered a crazy little Easter Egg under the paneling. I REALLY want to see what that wall paper looks like, but I just know if I take down the paneling I will find gaping holes in the walls beneath, and I do NOT want to have to drywall the whole room. So I guess my curiosity will have to hold 5 or so years until we reno the entire second floor. Currently we have an addition on the back of the house through the basement and the first floor. It was built in the 50′s (the house was built in 1900). In 5 or so years we are going to have the second floor extended over the addition as well, and it will be an extension on Doug and my room, and a master bath. That way I do not have to share a bathroom with teenage girls. Really, that is the entire motivation for the addition, I do not want to share a bathroom with teenage girls. Thankfully, Doug agrees. Anyway, at that point we will renovate the entire second floor, and see what we can do about making Kyla’s room a bit bigger.

Kyla-Room-Reno-removing-trim

Back to the demo. As I pulled down all the trim, I am proud to say I removed every single nail so that no one would get hurt. Not my family, and not the garbage collectors. I really don’t like tetanus shots.  *Though I am up to date, no renos without up to date tetanus shots folks!

Kyla-Room-Reno-ceiling-issues

Now last night Doug took a look at the room. He didn’t like that the ceiling was sagging a next to the part I had removed. It had been that way since we moved in. When we had the leak after Sandy I had the roofer use the moisture reader over all the ceiling in both of the girls’ rooms. The only moisture was in the one spot, so there were not water worries about the sag, but Doug wanted it gone. So I got rid of it. Then I took a closer look. You see those lines I have put on the photo for you? Basically the entire ceiling from one end of the room to the other (all 7 feet of it) in between those lines is sagging. As far as I know (dangerous words) the best solution for this, mixing the less~than~a~decade lifespan of this reno, and doing things at least close to correctly, is to score those lines and remove all the plaster in between. Keeping a hammer and nails handy to reinforce any lathe that is coming loose so I don’t end up in an insulation shower. Than I can fill in the exposed part with drywall, fill in the seams with plaster, and plaster a light coat over the whole thing to even out the ceiling. Oh, first I would have to remove the ceiling fan base.

I’m going to talk to Doug about it tonight when he gets home. I don’t want to shock him.

Kyla-Room-Reno-demo-nearly-done

So I did manage to get all the trim down, and remove all the plates from the various outlets, phone jacks, and intercom. Oh, and I finally found a modernish renovation in the house that was done right! No, nothing in Kyla’s room, that was all a mess. There is a little breaker box in the hall closet upstairs. There 5 breakers, one each for the 3 bedrooms, the bathroom, and the closet. WOW! I was able to just flip the breaker for Kyla’s room and work with no electric in just that room. Of course as I go I will check each electric bit I need to work on before I start, just in case something is on another circuit.

I’m still not sure we are going to be able to finish this over the next week, but we will see.

I should have some more yarnie posts for you over the next few days. :)

I know some of you out there love to have charts with your crochet patterns. This round up is just for you! It features nine free crochet patterns with charts. Enjoy!

Charted-Crochet-Round-Up

Here are the names and links of each pattern, along with a little something that each designer has to say about them.

1) Personalized Baby Afghan ~ by Kim Guzman
This afghan pattern is the most popular design on my website. It has been made hundreds of times by internet users just like you! Myself, I have crocheted it at least forty times for family and friends.

2) Crochet Pot Holders … 2 Free Crochet Potholder Patterns (also make great nonstick pan protectors!) ~ by Petals to Picots
I made some new crochet pot holders for my kitchen that match those pretty crochet edged tea towels that I shared with you recently. As you can see I stayed with my red and white color scheme too. I love the simple and classic design of these pot holders. And best of all … did you know you can even use them in between your nonstick pots and pans to protect them from getting scratched up?!

3) Holiday Headband – free crochet pattern ~ by Oombawka Design Crochet
Here is a simple and very quick headband to make – I’ve included instructions for all sizes – and you can use any embellishment you wish – I have used my Holiday Bow Pattern to embellish Darla’s as we still have a few Holiday parties to attend this year –

4) Magic Spike Mandala ~ by Moogly
Crochet mandalas are everywhere right now! They’re beautiful and fun to make, ranging from the sublimely simple to the excruciatingly complex. I was inspired to design my own, but I wanted it to have a practical purpose too. And a reader request for coasters and placemats was just the spark I needed! The Magic Spike Mandala was born!

5) Neon Dreams Infinity Scarf ~ by Moogly
The Neon Dreams Infinity Scarf is indeed the stuff dreams are made of. Dreams of bright, bold hues, ultra modern color blocking, super chunky scarves and cowls, and infinite possibilities!

6) Toddler Cardigan Charted Pattern ~ by My Hobby is Crochet
The Little Girl’s Cardigan with short sleeves it is one of my most popular designs. I have seen so many beautiful toddler cardigans made by fellow crocheters using this pattern! In one solidcolor, or using different colors for the yoke and body part, the crocheters had always great results.

7) Stars and Stripes Bunting ~ by Jessie At Home
Show off your patriotic pride with this quick and easy Stars and Stripes Bunting! The stars are motifs that can be made in a solid color; in a red, white, and blue variegated yarn; or you can even make each of the 3 rounds a different color: one red, one white, and one blue. The stripes come in at the ribbon holding the stars together. There is a video and a chart for the stars as well plenty of photos. Enjoy!

8) Heart Granny Square Crochet Pattern ~ by Petals to Picots
I’m a sucker for granny squares and can’t seem to stay away from them for very long. There is something about the this timeless and classic square that just draws me in. I thought it would be fun to have a heart granny square to include in some of my Valentine’s crafts. I worked up a bunch and finally got it the way I like. Here is my heart granny square crochet pattern to share with you all …

9) Faded Ripple ~ by Jessie At Home
This ripple pattern puts a new twist on a classic afghan crochet pattern. This stitch pattern works for afghans/throws, or wraps, or scarves, or a variety of other projects. Faded ripple is a great stitch to use with stripes, as it gives a pretty detail to color changes. It can be used with just about any size yarn and the coordinating hook. I do not recommend novelty yarns, as the textures of the yarn can make the stitches difficult or just take away from the look of the stitch pattern.

Don’t forget to check out some of the other great Round Ups that have happened in Blogland over the last week!

Do you like the new look? I knew what I wanted for a long time, but it was not the easiest thing to achieve. Thankfully, with a LOT of help, I am nearly there.  I like it.

I really wanted it to be done by today, because I have a guest post on Stitch and Unwind ~ the blog from All Free Crochet & All Free Knitting. I will be writing a few more guest posts for them over the next few months. I’ll let you know each time so you can hop on over and give them some love! This one was about adding ruffles onto your crochet patterns.

Flying-Monkeys

Now, on the home front ~ there have been home improvements aplenty. I picked up this fun tin sign at AC Moore a few weeks ago, and finally gave it a home on the ledge going down to the basement. Just a reminder to anyone who comes down while I am working.

Ready-for-videos

I have also been planning several more Stitchopedia entries for you. I have the samples and yarn all lined up on my table, and the camera set up. I just have to wait until the house is quite to make them! The girls are on Spring Break this week, and Doug is on Spring Break this Friday through next Wednesday. I should be able to make the videos tomorrow, though, as the weather should be nice, so the girls can play in the back yard and avoid the stomping pitter patter of feet in the background of the videos.

progress-on-jean-insets

I have made more progress on the jean/yarn skirt. I’m having fun with it!

So, as I said the girls are on break this week, and Doug is on break Friday through Wednesday. So Kyla’s room is on the schedule. I am working on prepping it this week, so Doug and I can finish it when he is on break. Here are some prep shots.

Kyla's-room-from-door

Here is the room from the doorway. As you can see, the door is no longer hanging in the doorway. I am planning on striping the paint off the door, sanding it down, and repainting it. I’m not going to bother striping the paint off anywhere else in the room, as eventually (like 5 or so years from now) we will be remodeling the entire second floor anyway.

Kyla's-room-bed-corner

 A few steps into the room, that is the little nook where we will be putting the bed. It is just big enough for a twin bed. The notch that has been taken out of the room (where the ladder is leaning) is over the stairs, so we can’t reclaim that space unless we want to have to crawl up the stairs.

Kyla's-room-from-radiator

Here it is from the corner across from the door, where the radiator is. I am thinking of putting a little closet where the ladder is.

Kyla's-room-door-dismantaled

I removed all the hardware from the door. Along with a lot of the paint. It really just peels right off, there are so many layers. I am going to have Doug bring it outside so I can strip off the rest of the paint and sand it down without making a huge mess in the house.

Kyla's-room-door-parts

Like I said, lots of layers of paint.

Kyla's-room-ceiling-repair-needed

I’m going to take the blades off the fan and wrap the rest of it in plastic to protect it from the renos. I am also going to have to remove the plaster/layers of paint in the area where we had the leak after Sandy. Then I will have to re~plaster that bit before I can prime the ceiling.

Kyla wants a pink princess room. The walls are wood paneling. So we are priming the whole room in white or off white, and then we are painting the panels in various shades of pink. She wants the ceiling to be white with pink polka dots.

Kyla-flower-face

And here is the little princess after the Daddy/Daughter Dance last week. Doug and the girls had a great time. Vada got her face painted as well, but she washed it off before I had a chance to snap a photo.

Super-Kyla-and-her-super-dog

Here we have Super Kyla and her Super Dog.

The-wolves-are-signing-to-each-other

One last cute kid photo for you. Yesterday I came into the living room to find the wolves signing to each other. Really, they were having a whole conversation in song. It was adorable.

That’s it for tonight, my friends. I have a busy few weeks ahead, and lots of patterns swimming around my mind waiting to be written down and shared with you.
