Check list~

 Another project done and marked off my list!  Made Amanda some curtains for her bedroom and a bigger curtain out of a single sheet, and trimmed with the extra material from the curtains made for the windows.  They will look cute.  The material she bought was really nice to work with.  I'd given her coupons for Mill End Textiles (one of my favorite stores), and it was for 60% off.  So she really got a good deal.  She was so excited.
 Here are 4 panels for 2 windows.  All ironed and ready to go.

I took the sheet and used the top of the sheet for the header of the curtain, sewing a 2 inch wide piece of material on top, and the rod will go through that.  Then I had to cut off some material from the bottom of the sheet, and hemmed it up; then sewed the bigger 11inch  piece of material even with the bottom.  It's funny how the sheet itself wasn't squared up!  Fixed that, and then left 5 inches between the bottom trim and added the last 5 inch material piece.  The dark brown and white material really goes nice with the tan or ecru sheet.  
Some pictures from Jessica with Renee and her tutu's!!!!!
Now to get busy with the next thing on my list.  I have 6 hats to crochet for an order, two crocheted scarves to do and then need  to sew some infinity scarves.  Think I also need to get a another purple tutu done.  
Here's Renee late in the day when she got her tutu's in the mail.  Nothing like jumping on the trampoline wearing a tutu!!!   She then mowed the yard with her toy lawn mower in her pink tutu, and later fell asleep on the floor in her green tutu!!!!   So fun for little ones.


Here she is dancing with one of her daddy's cousins this past weekend.  It was their New Year celebration!
I was there a couple of years ago, and the food was out of this world - so good.  Great to be part of another culture.  Sandra and Ho put on a great feed.

Now off to the next project - more later.  Have a great week everyone.

Renee (and Odda) both look so cute in their tutus!
I've been doing some sewing jobs here lately for a few people and I am amazed at how off store bought items such as curtains,sheets & jeans are off. I always worry that my sewing won't be perfect but obviously store bought isn't either.
