Five days on the road, bookin’ it to Kentucky! We’re here to see more family – especially our new grandson. What a cutie he is, too!!! I just wish I could figure out how to post those cute videos. Ah well, in time.
We got here just in time to help paint our grandson’s play room and make curtains for it – the whole reason for bringing my sewing machine cross-country. Did you figure that out without my help?? Thought so. 😆
Yesterday we went fabric shopping. We chose a dark purple quilting fabric and white lining. Why white? Well, that window gets lots of sun, and I didn’t want the lining to show any window-shaped fade marks.
Oh. Did I mention that this is my first EVER attempt at making lined curtains? Yup. Maybe I should’ve gotten a pattern.
While I spent the entire day sewing, hubby was painting the play room. Isn’t it nice to be needed!! Who else would drive clear across the country just to fix up a grandchild’s play room?? Yah, I know – doting grandparents. 😆 It’s a very bright room, with three walls almost lime green and one blue accent wall. Brightly colored circles are to be randomly painted on the walls. The purple in the curtains matches one of those colors. I don’t think we’ll be here to help paint those circles, but we got enough done so our family can finish the rest at a more leisurely pace.
These pictures are as close as I can get to the actual colors.
Our job’s done here. Time to move on. Next stop: Tennessee and South Carolina!!
