weekend recap

It’s a sad thing to be writing about the weekend on a dreary Monday morning, but here goes…

I was able to complete two projects–and get in a little bit of tidying up which is no small feat for the likes of me.

First project is the Burdastyle Azalea dress I made from pairing some Robert Kaufman fabric with the remnants of a satin-y bedsheet (yes, I do love those bedsheets!) that I had previously used to line a purse.

Second project involved this beautiful art nouveau/Tiffany-style print fabric I’d gotten from Tonicliving.com that I had intended to use for a dress, but hadn’t realized that it was a sturdy home decor fabric. D’oh! Maybe I should have read the details more closely.

Anyway, it dawned on me that these colors matched the scheme of our bathroom–and I’ve never been happy with the plain, store-bought curtains I’d hung when we first moved in–so…

Tada! I’ve transformed our plain bathroom into art nouveau heaven. I really love how the busy pattern livens up the space.

And while I was busy at the sewing machine, my Breadman Pro was slaving away in the kitchen to make me this gorgeous loaf of cinnamon raisin bread. So not everything in this home is handmade. šŸ˜‰
