What's been going on...



I've put up some Christmas decorations and Kate is loving every minute of this season's decor.


climbing is a new hobby of hers...


i found this fabric on Joann's website and fell in love with it, convincing Daniel it was perfect for our sliding glass door took a few months, but i was well worth it... It came in the mail just days ago...


And then yesterday, i tackled the drapery project.
No pattern, no sewing experience, no exact measurements...



I can't believe they actually turned out... I'm quite proud of myself.

They look fantastic and go great with the rest of my house... I'm still not sure if i did it the "right way" but they are holding up and look dang good! I for sure will be making more for the rest of my house!

p.s. i really enjoy sewing, and i absolutely LOVE my sewing machine!

I love the drapes!! I also love all your cute pictures!! You are so good. I have not seen any pictures of Rachels wedding so it was fun to see her in her cute dress. I also put a map on the bottom of my blog. Thanks for the idea : ) Hope all is well!

You are a brave woman! I cant even wrap a gift and make it look decent. Gift bags are the way to go for me. Think they would work as curtains? haha

Found your blog through lelly...hope you do not mind.
Fun reading. I love it that you didn't have a pattern and just started sewing. Maybe I'll try that. I have always wanted to sew "things".
