Sewing the New Curtains

This is what I did yesterday. I sacrificed one football game to get these ready before the Patriots game! I finished one minute before scheduled kick-off! yay! Cassell did alright. :) Feel better Tom Brady!

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!

For those in Roanoke or coming to Roanoke: I came back to let you know that the coupons I promised are ready. Just go to the Roanoke SuddenValues site and you'll find coupons for Szechuan (15% off dinner!), Beauty Bar and Touch of Class Boutique ($5.00 off any purchase of $25.00 or more! she's having a summer blowout with 35% off clothes and 10% off all clearance!) Show our new merchants some love. They don't pay for the extra blog announcement. It's a freebie just because we appreciate them. :)

Lisa the video keeps cutting off of Nick. It doesn't let you hear him play. Even at myspace. Is it just my computer or what. Give it a check maybe other people can check too.

Lovely Curtains!

I started a new sketch blog.
Only going to use a magnetic
sketch pad. I don't really no
what it is called. Maybe a Doodle Pad or something?

God Bless, Grace & Peace to You and Yours!!!
