After a quick, no tears recovery from the yellow paint debacle on Saturday morning, I headed into the city for the first of three sewing classes at Craft Haven. How much fun was it? So much fun, that's how much! I took the Uber Basics class even though I've done some sewing before and already have my own machine. My suspicions that I was doing almost everything wrong were confirmed by our awesome instructor, Kelly.
I've now been bit hard by the sewing bug, especially after learning the correct, much easier ways to do things. I'm even going to attempt to make some napkins tonight. Deets and photos of those coming soon!
Look! I made those!
If you are in the Bay Area and are interested in sewing, I would highly recommend Craft Haven. They even have 5 stars on yelp, a rating which is highly deserved. I'm already signed up for two more classes. Just imagine how into sewing I'll be after I learn how to do awesome stuff like put in zippers and button holes!
After the sewing class, I headed over to my old-boss-at-the-old-day-job's place to hang out with her and her super cutie baby. Such fun! I didn't get any pics of the baby, but I did have a chance to snap a shot of the treats I brought over from Baked. Yu-u-um! A red devil cupcake with cream cheese frosting and a fruit tart. I gotta learn how to make fruit tarts ASAP.
Also, isn't Baked a funny name for a bakery? I mean, I get it, but it's a little bit stoner, right?
After our dinner, we headed over to the Fillmore where a friend of Tim's band was playing. It turned out that the event was actually a 40th birthday party for the band's singer. Super fun! Oh, and the band has the best name ever: More Cow Bell.
I did, however, remember to take a picture when Mere and I stopped to rehydrate ourselves:
After suitably rehydrating ourselves, we hopped back on the bikes and headed over to the Berkeley Marina to meet up with some peeps for an evening sunset sai, just one of the many perks of having a bf who is a sailing instructor.
Look how fun sailing is:

WOW, that was a fun weekend! Did y'all do anything awesome too?
PS. In case you're wondering, the hardwood floors are 98% okay after their run in with Sun Shower yellow. And we still haven't picked a color for the walls. But, no worries, I'm sure you'll be hearing about that soon.
