March Updates and April Goals

Hi everyone.  I promise I did not mean to disappear for two weeks, although I have kinda been in the slums lately on what to post about.  Anyways, its time for some updates.  

Yet again, sewing has not been accomplished this month.  I did find out my problem though.  My needle had somehow become bent so I had to buy a new one and install it.  Now it is all set up, except I am still having issues actually picking up the bottom thread.  On the other hand, I did paint my kitchen island.  That only took about 5 days total!!  I am still trying to find some hardware for my drawers, but the major part is done.  I hope to post on that later this month.  I also finished my curtains for the kitchen (not sewn).  I halfway finished my vanity, and then somewhere along the way stopped for some reason.  I was also able to add more color to my wardrobe and house.  

One other thing I was able to do was clear out a lot of clothes and junk I did not want anymore.  It is amazing the amount of stuff you can accumulate in just 8 months time!!  Most of it we just gave to a thrift store, but I was able to sell some stuff to Plato's Closet.  I highly recommend it too!  $130!  Can you believe it?!?  I have another load I plan on taking this week.  My advice is to make sure to iron and neatly fold everything before you go.

Here are my goals for April:

Find hardware for Island
Finish Vanity
Figure out a crafty way to reorganize our subpar refrigerator in our townhouse. 
Continue thrifting for wall art
Continue adding color to my life
Give side table lamp a facelift
Sew, sew, sew, sew, sew

Here are some things I loved in March:

We are making this on Friday!! Yummmm
Fringe tassel garland.  I think this would be beautiful at Christmas time.
Totally inspired by this video...to make grilled cheese at least.

Beautiful hardware.
