Friday Musings

What a week! Have not had time to write up posts because

A: I am not organized 
B: I worked this week
C: was busy sewing roman blinds for my sister's mother-in-law 
D: When I had free time all the computers in the house were held hostage by children and husband. 

Have you tried writing a post in an iPhone? Not easy my friends.

Here is a peek at what has kept me busy this week. 

I made 3 custom roman blinds. Took me forever....tried to do my absolute best since it will be hanging in someone else's home. My sister's mother-in-law recently gave her kitchen a spruce up, stripped down the floral wallpaper from the 80's and painted her walls Benjamin Moore's Woodlawn blue. I then made these blinds for her from the gorgeous fabric she chose. Hope they like them as I deliver them today on my way home from this:

Wahoo! I am going to hang out with a few local blogging friends and take in all the beautiful things The Cross has in shop!
