Sunday Stash #103 – Drama Cake
You would not even believe the drama cake and truth tea I have been havin’ to serve about our new apartment! As I’ve told you we bought off the plan, (prior to it being built), and now that we’ve moved in, there are some rampant defects. I have had a parade of tradesmen wondering through my apartment over the last week, and not a single one of them has even been cute. Lord, give me strength! I won’t bore you with the entire twelve pages of defects I identified (seriously). However, the latest is a large patch of silicone stains a foolish tradesman left all over our hardwood floors. The only solution from the flooring installer in removing them: move out again so they can re-polish the floors throughout the apartment. AYFKM? Bonus points if you get that acronym.
Suffice to say, it was a welcome surprise to see this Botanics Aurifil thread set show up on my work desk this week! Now I can strangle all of those tradesmen that keep damaging my apartment, without fear of thread breakage! (Conversely, if any cute ones do show up…) This lovely gift came from Alyce at Blossom Heart Quilts because I won second prize in her Bright Sky QAL! I also won a $30 gift certificate to Southern Fabric, but I haven’t managed to even sit down and try to use it yet.
A lot of you have been asking about my new sewing studio, and I promise it’s getting there. I bought furniture today, and it will most certainly feature in a future Sunday Stash. It’s pretty amazing, if I do say so myself! Please bear with me while I try to get our apartment business straightened out. Kisses!
