Hello, dear readers. I know, it’s been a while, but we have been soaking up summer days here, and I have loved every last unscheduled minute. You feelin’ me? No early morning school deliveries. No sports or band practice deliveries. No deliveries of any sort. Nothin’. Nada. Zilch. Except for the eight zillion “Could you take me to so-and-so’s house today?” deliveries. But those are generally later in the day, once I’ve had my morning coffee and have changed into actual clothing rather than climbing into my car in pajammies. Don’t judge.
Anyway, we did take a fantastic trip to Washington DC and Philadelphia, so we have been out and about, but we have also spent lots and lots of glorious time just chilling at home. Because we’ve been so chill around here, I’ve not had a whole lot to tell you about…until now. In fact, lovelies, I may need a high five, because after having the fabric for about 5 months, I actually made roman shades for my kitchen. That’s right, it only took me five months to get my fanny in gear and crank them out. Here I am in action, y’all.
That’s right. A glue gun. The fact is, these shades don’t have a single stitch in them. How you ask? Check out my tutorial here.
Here they are in situ. (That’s just fancy talk for “actually installed above the windows in my kitchen)
It didn’t take long, and it is not a difficult project, but I found myself putting it off time and time again. You know, five months is a long time, so maybe I don’t deserve a high five after all. However, if you have a spare, I’d sure take it.
What have you accomplished this summer, dear readers?
