I wasn’t able to do any sewing at all this weekend. :-( But, I did find a fabulous piece of embroidered white linen in my stash for another jacket. It’s been prewashed and is just waiting to be pressed.
I was busy all weekend replacing door casings in my bathroom so that I could get them painted before Jim started grouting. Not the most fun I ever had but I did get to use my nail gun and who doesn’t feel like *all that* when wielding a nail gun?
I picked up the crown moulding today as well as paint for the ceiling. I want to paint the ceiling before he starts laying the floor tiles because I’ll have to get my BIG ladder out to paint inside the skylight and don’t want to worry about scraping tiles. I decided to do the painting myself because I am super picky about that. Which is why I spent my entire Sunday sanding and painting door casings…
I didn’t spend the entire weekend working. Bryan and I went to a Panthers game with our friends Jodi and Jimmy. Jimmy and I graduated from high school together and now their daughter plays softball for Bryan. I hadn’t been to a game in ages – we had a great time! I had to laugh because I look so pale next to them – they spent all day Friday and Saturday at a softball tournament.
The tile is going pretty quickly now. Jim is nearly up the ceiling in the shower, yay!
I got a big surprise today. Jim actually *made* these big, fat bullnose pieces – they are really incredible. Since the tile was going to come out as far as the door casing he thought we needed a nice trim piece. Love it!
Here’s my shower drain. I had so much fun helping with this today – I made all of those little filler pieces! I cut up some 4×4 tiles and then hand filed the edges. I know it doesn’t seem like a big deal but I get so excited when I learn a new technique.
I probably won’t be able to get into my sewing room today since I have a ceiling to sand but I should be able to get back to my jacket by Wednesday evening.
Happy sewing to the rest of you!
