Weekly review: Week ending May 1, 2015

Posted: - Modified: | review, weekly

This week started off really fuzzy (sore throat, boo), but I'm feeling back to normal now. I remember that week to have been pretty slow, but now that I review it, it seems like a good week after all. Funny how that works.

Our new barbecue arrived, yay! We chose to assemble it ourselves instead of taking advantage of the store's offer of complimentary assembly. It was fun putting the barbecue together with W-. Now that we have a rotisserie, we're focusing on getting the hang of rotisserie chicken. That promises to be a yummy addition to our cooking repertoire.

As a personal reward for progress on one of my projects, I treated myself to Liberty fabric this week. It's more expensive than other cottons, but it feels nice. I'm looking forward to cutting and sewing it into yet another one of my tops. Oh yeah, I sewed a soft-sided box and a lined zippered pouch… Mwahahaha!

Oh, and I watched Age of Ultron with my consulting clients. =) Fun movie! I wore that Marvel top I made, for extra fangirling…
