Gettin' Crafty!

So, since Mom left in August I can't say a lot has been done to our house decorating wise.  Mom knows how to crack the whip and when she's on a roll you better just hold on and hope you have the stamina to go the distance.  I'll be honest, she wore us out when we first moved in.  When she left, David and I had a relaxation day.  

Fast forward 5 weeks and poor Collins is still sporting the beach towels on his windows.  In my defense, it did take me a while to figure out what I wanted to put on his windows and those beach towels had his room pitch black which was nice.

Isn't that cornice board beautiful?  It was wrapped in the ugliest fabric I have ever seen. 

 My helper is showing off the blinds.  He's quite the climber these days.  

I typically leave the sewing to my mom.  She's fast and accurate.  I'm slow and always off by 1/2 inch.  I decided to bite the bullet.  I ordered the fabric online and away I went.  I lined the curtains with blackout liner to help with the light.  The sun rises right outside his window and when the sun is up then Collins is up.

My finished product.  Pretty cute, huh?  I'm pretty proud of myself.  It took me longer than it should have but I'm glad I can say I did it myself.

The inside seam is lined with red pom-pom balls.  Those were a headache and caused me to use a lot of 4-letter words.  

The downside is that now my new friends think I can sew and are already talking about curtains I could make for them.  Little do they know is that I'm a one trick pony.
