A busy week and some sewing :)

It was another busy week – sometimes the days seem to be so full that I don’t accomplish any of the things on my list.  Hubby is still away at work so I spent another night out there on Wednesday.  These gorgeous Fairy Lady Slippers were blooming in the yard.

And the ice was still trying to leave…  Funny because it is all gone here, but I guess this lake is at a little higher elevation…

It was my sister’s friend Linda’s birthday and the whole family came out for the party…  We had some FUN…. (which is the word this week for the 52 week photo challenge, so I will be linking up with Shaz at Alsha's Space).  And here are granddaughter, DD # 3 and a couple of the dogs having some FUN. Smile

I did actually get some sewing done this weekend… Remember I said I had to help DD # 3 make curtains.  Well we got them done!

There are two sets like this.  She got this wonderful bird fabric at the awesome store she found in Vancouver… which by the way is called Spool of Thread and is located at 649 15th Avenue.  There is a website too at spoolofthread.com.  I haven’t checked it out yet.

The curtains are backed with a pretty blue/green fabric to help keep the light out… This is how effective they will be…  Not too bad…

And granddaughter had to sew too, so she made a little bag from the children’s scrap bag of fabrics, with handles of the blue/green curtain fabric…

She is such a poser… 

That’s all for this week, but I’m pleased with my sewing accomplishment!  I hope you had a great week too.Open-mouthed smile

  3. I think that really meets the criteria of "fun". I hadn't thought of it but I guess with light all day and all night long, dark curtains would be helpful.
