And they're up!
I've never sewn curtains before but when I saw this fabric my mind latched onto the little yellow finches and just. would. not. let. go. When we got a tiny antique dresser and another crib for free, I could finally justify buying the fabric.
Ahhh, now to find the time to sew.
All week I would gaze wistfully at the sewing machine, fingers itching to stitch, but time refusing to be pinned down. Finally, Thad and I came to an agreement. While the babies slept, mamma sewed...with her Little Man pressing the "gas pedal". It was an adventure. And we both feel like we've accomplished something grand. In fact, the whole family has contributed to this curtain endeavor. Daddy made the cornice, Boston left the tiniest smudge of chocolate, and Astair wrinkled the bottom half. We work well together as a family.
And we love well, too...most of the time! I snapped this picture when all three of my kids were giving each other hugs and kisses. It lasted for nearly two minutes. Two whole minutes free of squabbles, quibbles, and sibling rivalry!
Way to go, gang, way to go!
Disclaimer: Don't look too closely at the second picture--Boston thought his freshly painted room needed some wall art.

KEEPING THE PEOPLE OF HAITI IN MY PRAYERS. MY HEART FEELS STIRRED TO DO SOMETHING--ANYTHING-- TO BRING EVEN THE SMALLEST OF HOPE TO THESE DEVASTATED ONES.
