I did get to the thrift store while I was away and I couldn't believe how jam packed with stuff it was. Turns out my town is full of thrift store scavengers (competition) so the pickins is usually slim. I think this piano was actually there last time I visited my family (umm, thanksgiving?) but I passed it by. But really can you pass on a vintage, wooden toy piano for $20 two times? It sound very much like a toy piano--pling, plong--but I kind of like it.
I was thinking I should get a little more organized when it comes to my sewing. I've got so many projects that I would like to start and so many that really need to be done and I want to do all of it at once, so I end up staring at fabric or making piles or cleaning up and then it's time for bed and nothing has been made. So inspired by some lovely ladies, I thought I'd try to have a goal each week: making a garment each night of the week (like amanda) or just posing a creative challenge (like fede). I'd like to do this all summer, but really I think I'll just start with the next month and see how it goes. I think it will make me focus a bit better. This week is just about organzing and getting ready, but I'll be back next week to post the theme or goal or whatever. If you'd like to join me with your own weekly goals, please do, we'll get even more done that way I'm sure.
