whoooeee look what got done!

(Watch out, long winded and lots of pictures ahead!)

So last night, after much thanks to my husband, I (we) finally finished the dresser. I'm so happy to have it done so that I can now start organizing all our clothes that are all over the floor. It looks really good, but now I'm a little disappointed that it clashes with the window seat dresser that we refinished from the thrift store. I guess it's not really that bad, in fact, my husband was getting really mad at me last night for even mentioning it. Guys are so funny. Anyway, here's the finished dresser, after 3 days and a few beers.

Another thing that got done this weekend was some organizing, sorting, and folding of my fabric. I used Happy Zombie's method, except I didn't have a ruler, so I cut one out of cardboard from one of the millions of boxes we have. So, here's the stashformation, as she says.

And finally, since I got some things cleaned up yesterday, I went to the thrift store, sans child. It was nice to go early in the morning alone and get first dibs on the items. My sister-in-law and niece have been reading the American Girl books, and they had 20 there for .60 each. That was such a bargain. More importantly I found some nice fabrics. The fabrics always come in bunches at the thrift store. The blue and green is my favorite and the reason I bought the bag in the first place.

Since I just organized my fabrics, I thought that I'd give away something that I don't need or won't use. I'm not sure how many people read this blog, but I'll give it a shot. Anyway, this Easter Egg fabric was in the bundle from the thrift store. It's cotton, and I think it's about 2 yards, maybe a little less, I didn't measure it. Leave me a comment if you would like it, if there's more than one person wanting it, I'll do a drawing tomorrow or the next day. BUT.. if you get it, I want to see how you used it! I have no idea what I'd do with something like this so I'm offering it to any takers. Have a good beginning to the week. It's supposed to be 70 here today!

Looks nice. I really need to organize my fabric. It's totally out of control.
