What are you working on? 9/17/07
Okay, another week has passed...what did you accomplish and what are your plans for this week?
I did get the laundry room done for the most part. It's taken longer than I wanted it to (it's a SMALL area!) because every night when I think I'll get some time to do things because DH is home to help with the kids, he wants me to help him with something! LOL I need to dig through Aften's stuff for something to go on the "clothesline" because I have Shane's Osh Kosh Bibs and his Gap ball cap. I also need DH to cut these boards down and make me my shelves for the back of the washer and dryer and I want him to make me another small shelf for the corner. Either that, or I need to paint the wire rack I have because the green is bugging me! I like what I've done so far but it's like it's not quite complete so I'm not really happy yet and therefore haven't felt it was photo quality! LOL
Today I finished up curtains for a friend of mine. She bought this silky champagne colored fabric with roses on it months ago. I don't know what she was thinking but she wanted new living room curtains and didn't have a lot of money and thought it was really SIMPLE to make curtains. Well, it can be but it helps if you can sew! LOL She was going to attempt hand stitching and I explained that it could take YEARS at the rate she works at! LOL Anyway, she was using it like a valance and had it attched to the rods with safety pins. I went up to her house on Friday and we figured out what we could do with the amount of fabric she bought at the time and I ended up bringing everything home because we ran out of time up there. I made her 4 panels for her 3 window bay window at 63" long and even had enough to do tie backs. I can't wait to see them in her window but I really think she's going to need sheers yet. I'm trying to teach her how to decorate nicely but inexpensively :)
My next project will be my new shower curtain :) I have wanted one for some time but didn't feel like spending $35+ on a Primitive country plaid shower curtain so I bought $10 worth of fabric and I'm going to make my own. This should be simple after all the folding over and heming I've done the last three days! LOL
After that, I'm not sure what I'm going to get in to. I have two signs to make for my aunt. They have to be woodland themed with their last name on it. They want one for the house and one for their camper. I'm at least going to get paid for that job!
