Sewing the New Curtains
I didn't buy enough of this fabric so I only had enough for two windows. I don't know what I was thinking. 3 yards of fabric is not going to cover three windows. But it did cover two with nary a thread left over.
I'm loving them. They really tied all the crazy colors in our kitchen together.
As you can probably tell, I didn't line them.
During the game, I crocheted. I'm working on a market bag. Mostly I'm just trying to get in the swing of following a pattern. I bought a new pattern yesterday. I'm going to practice on a few patterns first and then start in on this beautiful shawl. My hope is to have it finished by January so I can take it with me to our national business conference. Isn't it gorgeous? I could not resist it. Man, Ravelry is a seriously dangerous place.
I think that's about it. I need to get to the gym. I took the weekend off so I'm ready to get back on the elliptical and run off all those game beers. yikes!
Have a great week everyone!
