A little bit of everything

I found out yesterday that in a week one of my bathroom will be redone so I needed to finally decide on what I wanted (wall tile, floor tile, vanity,etc) NOW because you never know how long it will take to get the materials. Today I went to a supplier and it turns out that he had available the wall tile and accent tile I like. So tonight DH and I are figuring it out how much we need since the tile is reserved for me but only for 2 days. I still need to find floor tile and decide on the vanity but I'm closer that I have been in months...I guess I just needed a deadline.

Last night I cut out my dress for the wedding (fashion fabric and interlining). I hope tomorrow to cut out the sew-in interfacing and order the zippers and some other supplies I need. The muslin for my future SIL should reach her tomorrow and we'll go from there.

I'm still working on Juliett. I'm on the lace pattern now which makes the knitting more interesting, of course you also have to pay more attention.

Spring is on its way although it was cold (40s) again today. My garden is waking up so I will spend more time outdoors soon. I'm excited that this year my tulips all decided to pop up. I will take pictures when they reach their peak.

The above picture shows a fountain in the new children's garden in Longwood Gardens, Pennsylvania. I adore this fountain, I like it so much I tried convincing my husband he needed to learn a new hobby, when that didn't work I started wondering if there was a waiting list for when the gardens were changed again and they wouldn't need this fountain anymore... Anyways I guess I can always visit anytime and not only see this fountain but all the other wonderful structures they have there. If you leave in the vicinity don't miss it!

  1. Great fountain!! I love stuff like that, too.

    Are you making the "retro" dress for the wedding? What color is it? Remind me.


I love hearing from you!
