Bits and Pieces - small projects completed

I realize I haven't written in a while.  Sometimes there's just no news.  Other times I'm just swamped with life and can't get around to it.  Lately it's been the latter.

I started a new job at a brand new local bakery - and I'm having a blast.  It's a much better fit for me than the school I was working at earlier in the semester.

In the meantime - we've finished the back cushions in the salon!
 If you remember, we made the base cushions and covered them this summer.  Not a small project to tackle while learning to use our new Sailrite - but it's done!  And now we've remade all of the back cushions and just this week finished making the cover for the very last one.  There will be a separate post on that.

We also managed to actually finish some other small projects over the last month or so:

The original disgusting and slippery/dangerous companionway steps

During the removal - the fist and last step came right off.  The other two needed a hammer and chisel...  Seriously.
Done!  And the best part?  It's not $120 worth of "marine" material - it's a $14 yoga mat!  And only half of a mat at that - so it'll even be possible to replace this (waterproof, antimicrobial, super-comfy/traction-y) material AGAIN if we need to.  :)  

New faucet in the aft head - as well as the newly mosaic-ed mirror.  
Only pic I've found that kinda shows the fwd head.  Look at the right to see original configuration of sink.

Fwd head with soap dispenser installed in the newly available hole - thanks to the new combo faucet/knob.
