We did accomplish quite a bit this weekend. We went back to the store in Point Pleasant and retrieved the sewing cabinet for our vessel sink project. And at a hefty discount, I might add. I'm starting to think I will need more than $500 to do the powder room over completely but I'll try my best.
We're Cablevision customers, so we were reunited with HGTV and Food Network this weekend. We've been without for nearly a month -- they were yanked from our airwaves in a ridiculous Goliath vs. Goliath battle. Ergo, I spent way too much time watching TV this weekend. I was amused by a new show called Sarah's House where one bathroom was allocated $7000 for a "low end" budget makeover. And she still went over budget. Oh Sarah, Sarah, Sarah. Stick with me, kid. (It should be noted that the bathroom was beautiful, though.)
My friend Spence was cleaning out his storage unit and wondered if I wanted to be custodian of his antique lawyer's bookcase...no room in their new condo. It took me about a nanosecond to say, "YES, PLEASE!" And I put it together in the office-crafty-sewing room today.
And I am in love. I think I will use it to store my growing "collection" of fabric.
Speaking of fabric, I'm taking dress making classes. I have no time (or skill!) to be doing this, but new year, new challenges, blah, blah, blah. And Friday I completed my first dress:
Crazy, right? The fabric was in the clearance bin at JoAnn's so I only spent $1.50 a yard (three and half yards total). But since it took somewhere close to seven hours to complete the dress (I'm including the time spent seam ripping myself out of it when I got stuck in it. And yes, that's totally a true story) I'd say it was a wash. But at least my new hobby keeps me out of trouble and off the streets.
I hope you had a productive weekend. Now if you'll excuse me, I believe Designed to Sell is on...
