Ok, yeah... that's a cheesy ass title. I can't help it!
I've got a super-amazing-awesome husband!
I've gotten several projects done since he set it up for me the other day, too.
Remember those polyester scraps of slacks I mentioned that used to be in the trunk turned coffee table?
I also sewed a curtain for the window over the stairs. We hung it up with staples, because it was scary enough with the Pup balancing on the banister to try to reach just for that. Having someone balancing up there with a power drill and multiple sharp pointy objects to try to hang a curtain rod was just not something I really wanted to contemplate.
Another staple gun curtain project. This was a very sheer knit in a sunshiney yellow. It actually almost perfectly matches a tablecloth I gave Ms. Terri this past summer. If I had seen this when I gave her the table cloth, I would've given this to her, too, because I'm really not a big fan of pastel or bright colors. But, it ended up working out great for the bathroom. It shades, without cutting out all the light. And when it's cool enough to open the windows, it lets a breeze through, without billowing around and showing you showering to the neighborhood ;-) It also makes the bathroom a pretty warm sunlight color, even when it's cloudy out.
That's it for my projects so far. I'm still not done, yet. B made me a lap loom that I just have to try out with the spools of run yarn I scored. 80 lbs of yarn for under $80. When you consider that a normal skein costs around $3, and it's usually only a few ounces, you're talking about a MAJOR price score. I just can't knit with it, because it all wound up being rug yarn.
Maybe I'll be unpacked all the way, one day LOL. I'd probably make more progress if I quit playing with the sewing machine, huh?
