A Mommy Moment

Nick and his girlfriend stopped by after going out to dinner last night. Don't they look pretty? :)

I don't have any crafting to show. I spent most of the morning doing Roanoke SuddenValues work and then just puttered around cleaning and moving a few things around.

I am on inspiration overload having found so many pretty home and stitching blogs. I had some money from selling a doll and I spent most of it today on some flour sack dishtowels. I can't wait for them to get here so I can start stitching them.

I was thinking I may make new kitchen curtains with them until I realized it would probably take 4 per window and since I only ordered 10, well...I may fall back to plan A. I saw some curtains in an old Pottery Barn catalog that looked very similar to the ones I made last fall but they had ties and were hung from cafe rods which just made them cuter. I'm planning to revamp mine with ties and I know I've seen cafe rods really cheap at Family Dollar. There will be pictures when I get them finished.

I've really been itching to sew but then I go to my little space and just stare at the machine. Is there such a thing as too much inspiration?

redoing things in the house is so much fun! Your plans sounds great!

I recently hung a pair of curtain I had in storage up in the dining room, put out my table runner and some fresh flowers and it was like a new room!

Yes! I get inspiration overload all the time. My mind whirls in all directions wanting to do everything. I can't wait to see what you do with the flour sack towels. My mom used to embroider those days of the week pictures on all of ours. I wish I still had some of them.
