Stupid CSI Marathon!Thanks to the CSI Marathon on cable, I seem to be unable to leave the couch for more than a few minutes at a time. Luckily, almost all of the moving has been finished for the weekend, and S and I are taking a little break while he takes his friend site-seeing.
Yesterday, however, was not a day off... wanna see what approximately $10 of supplies and a DIY project will get you?
Step 1 - sand down the board. Then stain it (but put your foot down about sealing it. It was $6 of wood, and sealing it is a huge pain in the @$$.)
Step 2 - install the shelf behind your bed. Wear safety glasses when drilling above your head. If you're extra-cool, wear your fiancee's sunglasses.
Step 4 - load up your nightstand stuff.
I am in LOVE with this shelf. I am also in love with our new "library nook" -
... so much so that I staged a photo-shoot and pretended to be one of those models "reading."
Indigo Ripples Skirt
Pattern: Indigo Ripples Skirt from Interweave S2007
Yarn: Rowan Denim, 8.5 balls, Nashville
Notes: This is a fantastic pattern, and is so comfortable to wear. It was totally worth the blue hands one gets while knitting with Rowan Denim! I only made 1 small modification to the pattern - I lengthened the stockinette stitch section above the lace (I wanted a slightly longer skirt.)
Elspeth ... we're totally going to have to set up a denim-skirt night. I'll call JRM and see when he's free!
And speaking of Henry VIII, here's a still-life of Henry and Dog...
