Oh, did you want to hear about my weekend? Well, if you paid attention to my Flickr Stream, you’d already have most of the story. But, since you probably don’t (because really, who does?), here’s the scoop.
Friday night, while eating dinner, my phone rang (this is valid blog fodder because my phone rings approximately once a week and half the time it’s ).
And of course, had to stop at JoAnn’s afterward, where I spent way more than I should have, but got some really fun stuff. (Check out Flickr if you don’t believe me.)
And then I made it partway through several skirts before I ran into problems not having all the notions I needed. Thankfully, JoAnn’s is having a sale on buttons and thread and interfacing (the last of which I need approximately 9.5 yards of to create that which I have both patterns and fabric for), all 50% off. Unfortunately, this sale does not begin until Sunday. Next Sunday. Oh well. I guess I’ll just have to work on the knit items I have cut out, none of which require interfacing (but some of which require learning how to use the buttonholer on my machine, and after half a dozen tries Saturday morning, I gave up). I have little hope for these items to turn out well, mainly because previous experience tells me that patterns are not nearly as good stylistically as store-bought items are when it comes to these items (sweat pants and elastic-waist shorts, etc).
I also made these on Sunday afternoon:
Since this required some patching and touch-up painting, I ended up painting all the trim in the kitchen. And made kabobs on the grill.
And as a final crowning achievement on the weekend, we got a little more stuff boxed up, cleared out, and moved a dresser out of a closet, and almost finished reading a book. Oh, and did most of my homework. Whew!
