Curtain Reveal

Well, here they are in all their glory!  It was a lot of work but they turned out well - not sure I'll tackle another big project like that again until I perfect my sewing skills though.  I still need to make some pillow covers.  I think I will take that on after we make it through graduation.  I need to get started on that now!

Man Cave "Lite"

The Man Cave curtains are done and hung.  I am in love with the fabric.  The colors are perfect and the overall pattern just really appeals to me.  I know it's a floral, but it looks great. In light of the fact that the men who occupy the Man Cave did not step up and offer to make the window coverings, I, the Decorator-In-Chief, decided to do them my way - and Voila!  Man Cave "lite" - works for me!  LOL

The Living Room drapes are also done, but I have them tied at the moment in an effort to get them to "remember" where to fold and hang nicely.  I'll take photos in a day or two when I unleash them!  Stay tuned.

Two Months? Really?

Oh my word!  I can't even believe that two whole months have flown by since my last post.  Things have been in high gear around here lately.  Between working, crafting, baseball and college miscellany for son #2 there hasn't been much time left over for blogging.  The end of the school year is coming to a rapid end (only two short weeks away) and in order to keep my mind off the fact that my youngest child is graduating,  I have kept myself busy.  I'm guessing that when Taylor heads off to college in the fall I will have more time on my hands than I know what to do with - so look out!  I'll be a blogging maniac!

This weekend the Worleybird Design Studio has been turned into a sweat shop - I'm working on some curtains for the Man Cave and our Living Room.  I'm not entirely sure what I was thinking taking on this project.  For starters, I don't really know how to sew.  And my BFF who I turn to for all things sewing lives about 400 miles away in Vegas.  Let's just say that I have set my phone to speed dial so that when I get into a panic my dear friend Irene can talk me down!  I have nine panels to make - They are 107" long, 54" wide and I'm lining them.  Oh. My. Goodness.  That is a LOT of fabric!  Four are done and I'm hoping I will be able to finish the other five tomorrow.  Here's a sneak peak at the fabric (which I adore) - I'll be back to post photos of the finished project when it's finally done.
