......I learned how to fix my broken toilet........it only took three trips to the hardware store.
I did laundry......and left the lid off of the liquid detergent when I went to answer the phone.....the cat jumped up on the machine and knocked down the open detergent bottle onto the floor....long story short, my laundry area's floor is so clean that you CAN eat off of it!
I'm working on a birthday project for Emma, who turns 3 next week. She's a "girly girl" who loves ballet, princesses and the color pink. I have an old, antique doll crib that I bought when Elizabeth was the same age....I never did get around to doing anything with it. I dragged it out of the garage, disassembled the pieces, and am in the middle of painting them white. I am also sewing bed linens for the crib......using the same fabrics that Elizabeth used for Emma's bed.
Am I struggling? You betcha! It's been YEARS since I've sewn....and my fingers are not as nimble as they used to be....I've tussled with my sewing machine, and the comforter is almost finished (just a bit of hand sewing to do)! Next up was the "mattress"....I had the brilliant idea to lay cotton batting over the piece of wood that comprises the bottom of the crib, cover it with fabric and to staple it to the underside of the wood piece. Good idea in theory, but I got something totally different than I expected when I finished the stapling part.....
I tried to pick it up from the dining room table......it wouldn't move.....(my closest friends will not be surprised by this...) I HAD STAPLED IT TO THE TABLE! ... and although I took pictures, I now can't find the cable to connect to my camera to download them to my computer!
I don't care what time it is.....I think I'm finished for the day and am going to pour myself a glass of wine!
