First off, a big 'ol BELATED Midwestern THANKS to Miss Lera of The Sky is Pink, for the sweet little package that arrived last week. (Truth be told, after all the drama of last week, I ended up getting very sick myself and stayed in bed for 5 days. * But I'm going to gloss over that part.* See that? Like it never happened. I'm DONE talking about ill health.)
I was delighted to get a little package with the yummiest smelling homemade chocolate peanut butter soap and bakers twine and handmade card...! Thank you Lera, xoxoxo I love it. Fidget thinks it's chocolate and wants to eat it.
(Please forgive the photo quality. It's pouring down rain right now and there isn't decent light to be found!)
This week I am GOING to FINISH the curtains for the playroom. See? I've already got the sheeting ready.
In truth, I started cutting these over a week ago. And then I realized I miscut not one, not two, but all THREE curtain panels. How long have I been sewing again??? I tossed them on the table in disgust and walked away, quite sure that my stupidity was a serious handicap to my crafting and I shouldn't go any further. But now I know how I'll fix them, so no harm done. They'll just be... fancier. Because that is what a fake window in a playroom needs. Fancy curtains.
Anyway, the playroom IS going to be finished one of these days! Because I need to get going on her. I'm still mulling over fabric options and the whole slipcover/reupholster decision, but we're closing in on that project, my dears. I can't wait.
Goodness, there is a lot to catch up on when you've been unplugged for a week. I honestly don't know if I'm going to catch up or just start from here. There's so much good stuff in blogland that I would hate to miss. We'll see if this week's workload allows for some skimming through last week or not... I have a feeling things are going to be pretty busy over here for a while. I'm missed you all, dear friends!
: : : Thank you, again, for your sweet comments and emails over the last week. They have meant so much. My father-in-law is moving into the rehab unit today, which is a miracle considering he had no pulse a week ago... and little Fidget? She's back to her old silly self again. : : : e x h a l e : : :
