Endings and beginnings
By the time Cliff got home from the U of I game on Saturday, I had finished all the panels. Impressed? Wait, there's more! I did this while I had a cold. Please, no need to applaud.
About three o'clock, we started in on the replace the rods, hem the drapes, project.
We finished about 7:30, too late for me to make dinner. (Brilliant, no? And we both like Culvers)
OK, back to the official sewing blog!
We both may have had a few moments today, mistakes may have been made and some curses uttered.
But it was all worth it. Emily and the lady were right, longer is better.
I like them because they are still casual, like my house, but spiffier.
We have the new dressers, lamps and night stands. We still need to hang the TV on the wall, get the new bed and new dust ruffle plus, a new wall quilt. And then, after the New Year, we are going to replace all the carpets with wooden floors. Then the bedroom will be done but right now, new drapes are up!
I found out that my grand child will be a little girl! Isn't that terrific? I was hoping for that or a little boy. I could use this quilt for her but I have two other quilts planned for her. I still don't know.
One thing I know for sure, that pattern for little baby girl "shoes" was not a bad purchase after all!
See what a great sewing weekend I had? I finished projects and get to think about new beginnings.
Is there a better life than that of a Quilter? (Oh hush, you needn't mention movie star, rock star, millionaire...)
Endings and beginnings, I love them both!
