My Dad asked me one day what we were going to do about such and such a project and I was like, "I don't know Dad, and I'm not sure I even want to think about it. As old as we're getting, we'll probably die working on this house." But really, it's more than a house, it's a home and for that I'm truly thankful.
Sidetracked as usual. But the kitchen needs a new window, this summer hopefully. I was sort of saving the whole curtain thing until then, but I got into spring cleaning and trying to get a little more organized by getting back into the whole Flylady thing. It was kitchen zone week, so I went a little overboard and decided that a window treatment for my bare window needed to be on the list.
I have all this painters cloth and so I grabbed a piece and in less time than it took to write this post, (almost) I had a new valance for the window above my sink. The size of the window isn't going to change so if I want to keep it, I can, and if I decide to buy some nice fabric later, it's okay. No need to buy a pattern. I found directions here at the Sewing and Craft Alliance Website. This is a great PDF. One worth keeping in your bookmarks.
So the hubster walks in and I'm batting the baby blues at him trying to get him to notice my work, and he's acting all (fill in the blank) about it. "Oh yeah, nice curtain!" he says. Gotta love em...
