Pic of the Day #7

Dallas' room. Looks pretty normal, right? Bed, dresser/changing table/window...But, until today, the window did not have curtains. That's right!! I finally finished them! Mom left me the fabric when she came to take care of me after Dallas was born, and now we finally have a window, just for him, that I can cover it with. You can't see it, because I didn't take the greatest picture, but the top is made of loops instead of the traditional hide-the-entire-ugly-bar, and the loops match the pretty red trim that can just barely be seen at the bottom of the curtains. Is it terribly obvious that I'm proud of this?:p I'm putting my sewing machine to good use (now that I've unpacked it from the box) and I have grand intentions of making lots more stuff...we'll see how it goes.

You go girl! The curtains look great! Good job! I'll bet it is good to finally have Dallas in his own room...good luck on retraining him to sleep through the night again. Be persistant, he'll get there.

Great curtains! That's something I have yet to try...though I think they ought to be easier than the dress I attempted for her last Easter. You are in inspiration!

I'm not sure how I missed this... I know that I read your food tag, and I read about the melt down, but I don't remember reading about the curtains for Dallas' room. Not sure how I did that. Anyway, good job! Curtains go such a long way towards making a room look 'finished', and his look great :)

Horray for finished projects. I still have several. I am not even going to think about them until I am either done working this summer or several months after the baby is born and I am not working. Your curtains sound so cute. Yeah.
