I bet ya’ll thought I missed this week’s Tackle It Tuesday, huh? Nope. I’ve just been a busy little bee, sewing away at my tasks for the day. I started off this morning with this pile:
A pile consisting of 5 yards red cotton twill, 6 yards white cotton, 4 yards of multi-colored striped cotton, and a half yard each of a multi-colored dotted cotton and a plain yellow cotton. Oh, and let’s not forget the 4 rolls of black and white coordinating ribbon.
The goal was to complete the following for the on-going redesign of my youngest children’s room:
- red curtains with black ribbon
- white fabric blinds with black ribbon
- multi-colored striped bed skirts
- two yellow pillows
- two multi-colored dotted pillows
I swear it didn’t seem too ambitious when I started. In fact, a storm had knocked out our internet, so it appeared to be the perfect way to spend a web-free day.
Somehow I forgot that I am by no means a professional seamstress. All I can say is that at 9:00 pm (eastern), I’ve just about finished the curtains. Just. About.
Yeah, that’s right. ONLY. THE. CURTAINS.
One day I’ll learn how to make realistic goals.
