Bright and Cheery.

Yesterday I made some new curtains for our bedroom.  I was shocked at how quickly I was able to get them done.  Thank goodness Dillon was around to help with the measurements.  For some reason I'm terrible at that sort of thing, usually no matter how accurate I am something still turns out crooked.

Here, take a look!

I really should have pressed them before I hung them up but my iron has been doing more harm than good lately.  So I wasn't letting it anywhere near these babies.

It's so bright and cheery in our room now, I just love it.  Before the floor-to-ceiling dark green curtains you see in the corners ran the entire length of the wall.  And because they weren't made to go on that type of rod they were impossible to slide open very much.  It was like a cave.  Now with these ones I can slide them open pretty far, and with a whole wall of windows it lets in a great amount of natural light.

Yay!!  I'm so excited to finish off the rest of our room to be bright and happy.  It'll be a big change but I'm ready for it.  I'm also ready to move onto making custom curtains for the rest of my house... kitchen, here I come!  Ol' Bessie and I had quite a bonding experience and I feel like I know her much better now.

Any big changes coming your way?

Thanks for looking, I hope you are having a bright and cheery day!

I know exactly what you mean about measuring! I double, triple and quadruple measure things and still end up with crazy crooked shapes.

We should start a support group.

Sweet curtains! Isn't it nice to have a change?

I like the yellow curtains, very cherry. A change like that can really brighten up a room.

No big changes here...just A L O T of gardening.

Thanks guys! It's sooo much nicer to actually have light in my room. I think it's actually made me a happier person, lol.

@ Randi- we totally need a support groups. I would say something like, Crooked Cutters or Silly Slicers but people might get the wrong idea.
