Blogtoberfest Day Seventeen: Sewing Today

If you and I turned on our webcams, you would see me doing a happy dance right now!!  I'm finally going to do some sewing today!!  I've been working hard to get this house in shape for my mom and sister to see this coming Tuesday, and I decided to give my self permission to take a break and make the dining room curtains I've been putting off! 

Last Christmas, my daughter's gift to me was a dining room make-over.  It's all finished except for the curtains and new table and chairs.  I was busy sewing too many other things to get to the curtains.  There's nothing like company coming to motivate you to get things done!

Right now the valance is the only thing I've cut out and can start on.  If that's all I can get done by Tuesday, I'll be happy.  Something on that window is better than nothing!  The floral fabric is the front and the check fabric is the lining that will peek out from the folds.  I really hope it turns out!

What are your plans today?  Will you be doing something that makes you happy?  I hope so!


  1. It's amazing how curtains can totally transform a room. Happy sewing!

  2. Why didn't you post a picture of the whole dining room? Or are you waiting til it's all finished?

  3. I just wanted to let you know I gave you a “One Lovely Blog Award.” To pick up your award just visit my blog.

    Have a great day!! 
