a productive day
Yes. That was breakfast out on our porch this morning :)
Hubby was off work, so I made breakfast and brought it outside in the fresh air for us to eat. Maybe this good start to the morning is why I was so productive today ;-D
After breakfast and browsing some of my favorite crafty blogs looking for some motivation, I finally blew the dust off of these poor, neglected little friends:
Yes. I actually did some sewing today!
I know....I'm a little shocked at myself ;) My crafting urge seemed to have got up and left after Christmas and I was wondering if I was ever going to find it again. But, find it, I did!
And a new curtain for my almost-finished remodeled bathroom :)
The bathroom is painted a light butter yellow with white trim and I thought just a hint of red accent in the room would be perfect for what I had in mind. I was going for simplicity with this valance. I only wanted the valance and some new blinds on my window, letting in as much light as possible during the day. So, with some white muslin and a final running stitch in red at the hem, I was pleased with the way it turned out. (I promise to post some photos of the finished room as soon as it is totally complete.)
Now I just have to wait for my paint to dry around my window so I can hang it up ;)
After I spent the morning making the curtain I turned my attention to the paintbrush and turned these old brown cabinet doors to a clean and simple white. I also needed to finish painting around the window and while I was at it I went into the other bathroom and put a new coat of white on the trim work in there, too!
I know, I was full of surprises today and really got a lot of needed work done while poor hubby worked outside with my boys all day, doing a not-so-pleasant job of working on pipes and digging a really big hole....but that's another post, lol!
Anyhoo....lots accomplished today and still lots on my to-do list. At least I was able to cross off a few things that have been lingering in the back of my mind for far too long.
I just hope tomorrow is as productive as today :)
