When we designed our log home,
we tried to keep a similar footprint as the home that was previously there.
That home had a garage that was detached from the house
and at a 45 degree angle to the house.
Our log home incorporates that oddly shaped space that used to lie
between the house and garage...
and in this triangular space is our kitchen, pantry, laundry room,
and a small bathroom.
Our kitchen is an odd shape....sort of a trapezoid.
The pantry is a trapezoid.
The laundry room is a rectangle.
And the space left over that we turned into a bathroom is a triangle.
Try fitting a sink and toilet into a small triangle.
It's a bit of a challenge.
Not wanting to waste any precious space, we rose to the challenge
and had a cabinet and countertop custom built to fit into a triangular corner.
We had a small wall built across the top angle of the triangle
and placed the toilet there.
Did you really want to know everything there is to know about our tiny bathroom?
But, it serves as an introduction to explain why these photos show such a wonky space.
The reason for the photos?
I just finished this rug from...
the last of the core spun wool from Grace, Hope and Faith....
a forever keepsake that will reside in our tiny bathroom.
And if you are just a little too short to see yourself in the mirror,
this rug is for you.... it's about 2 inches thick!
It should never wear out!
Thank you sheepy girls.... I can hardly wait to get this year's wool harvest.
I also had some alpaca wool that was spun into corespun.
Out of that I made this basket...
And a chair pad. (not for this rocker)
Last evening I finished this cowl...
from the softest merino wool.
It's an accessory that just might not be needed until next year.
You see, we are still having unseasonably warm weather.
It was in the 70's yesterday...
and today we are to have a repeat!
The grass is starting to turn green.
Enjoy the warmer weather. That garden renovation must be coming along quickly!
We will be starting seeds this weekend. Squee! I can hardly wait!
Have a happy weekend.
I love your triangular bathroom! That rug. Thank you Grace, Hope and Faith. How wonderful to be able to make something from your dear sheep. What a great job you have done, and I really like the basket.
Wishing you a beautiful weekend.
I would love to share the rug pattern with you....but I didn't use a pattern....I just started with a chain of a few stitches and then started crocheting in each stitch....round and round and made sure to add single crochets whenever I felt I needed to increase to keep the rug from turning into a sombrero!! I am not a crocheter, so I can't even really tell you what I did.....I just winged it! As for the basket...totally winged it....it was an experiment.
Some day I really must learn to knit...
And the knit/crochet ? pieces . . . wonderful . . .
Little basket is really sweet!
