Thank You Craig's List

After several years of half-hearted searching I found the sink of my dreams. She was delivered today and I will have to come up with a name for her... I currently think of her as Big Steel... really almost big steal as she was most affordable. All stainless... 6 feet long.. the basin is 18" deep by 36" x26" will accommodate most of my screens. I am told she began her career at Jefferson Hospital, I bought  her from a closing restaurant. She is lovely! Now no more excuses... I will purchase a washer and dryer and a new hot water heater.  I did go and price things out at Loews yesterday. No more dragging fabric home to wash and screens down the hall to scrub. How exciting!

Between the bullet steamer affectionately known as the Orgasmatron and my new sink I am in stainless steel dyeing heaven. If you look to behind the steamer you will see the sink that is being replaced, adequate, but certainly not in the same league as Big Steel. Even more pathetic is the tiny hot water heater nestled in between the leg of the sink and my blue plastic kitty litter pan ( good for all kinds of things). By the time the water got out of the faucet I was out of hot water.

I will keep you posted on my plumbing progress.. today I will just look lovingly at the new sink!


  1. It is (gasp!) gorgeous!! I have a utility sink in the studio bathroom and yes, I still take everything to wash and dry it.
    But I only rent the space and the studios have no water except in the bathroom. Oh, well. It's ok. Love your orgasmatron! Looks like it's about to take off for outer space.

  2. Nice! Your sink and my sewing machine should meet for lunch one of these days!

  3. I'm loving your latest find! And, it's quite obvious, at least to me, that your Orgasmatron must be related to Big Pink of UDHS fame!

  4. Wow -- that sink is a dyers dream!
    Your fabrics are just stunning. I love the organic look you create.
    And the New Jersey jacket is really beautiful.

  5. Okay, I went and looked at your kimonos and scarves. I'm at a loss for words. You have a wonderful gift for color and design.
