I’ve been working for some odd months on trying to get Alice’s curtains done. It took many Saturday mornings and grandparents here to watch kids while I finished them, but they’re done! I’m really happy with the way they turned out. They gave me some fits this weekend because I was done with two panels and hung them, all to find out that those two store bought panels were different lengths. (by 2.5 inches) Thanks a lot Walmart! So my mom ripped out the ribbon sewn on so I could make it match the other one and I hemmed both the curtain and the green liner. Anyway, I’m so glad they are done. Phew! Bob hung a ceiling fan in her room today and I installed the cute butterfly tie backs. Her room is feeling more complete. I didn’t realize how sick I was of seeing sheets on her windows! I still want to hang this wooden butterfly we have and maybe paint it or ask a friend with painting skills to paint it cute to match her curtains and walls. I’m sure there will be other little touches here and there. But for now, its feeling like a nice little girls room. Alice really likes the butterflies too, so it was worth all the work!
