The sewing machine and I are getting to know each other, in that on again, off again kind of way. I'm not quite so intimidated by its inner workings, but there have still been a few midnight "I can't figure out how to work this *^#@ thing" moments.
Each of the children now has one window covered in curtains. They chose the fabric, but I'm the one who cares infinitely more that their rooms have curtains than they do!
Miel's even have ruffles because, in my carelessness, I bought too little fabric and the panels were a couple of inches too short. "Just add ruffles," piped an accomplished friend. Didn't think I could do it, but here they are. . .with some fun fabric chosen by Miel that I never would have even considered.
Isaiah's banner was his birthday present from me. Finished the night before his birthday, of course. From Amanda Blake Soule's Handmade Home. And yes, the "peace" message, a bit of my high hopes for what he can hold within himself and bring to his family and the world around him (and even his sister!).
