Well, I did get about 4 hours of sewing in Saturday since Aidan must be going through a growth spurt and slept most of the day. I managed to cut and sew 5 curtain valances for the living room and sewing room. I still need to work on quilting Aidan's quilt and baste hubby's so I can start hand quilting that one. Those are this weeks tasks.... and I also need to do 2 more valances for the den. I got the green fabric for that yesterday at Joanns. Here is a picture of one of the curtains in the living room...
it is the Legacy line at Joanns... a blue on blue flowered swirl. It really lightens up the living room since I took the long dark blue drapes down for the summer.

Now a quick check in blogland to see how the 'challenges' are coming along then it will be time to shower and give Aidan a bath so we can get going. Today we'll attempt the gym this morning... hopefully he does better today. Thursday they had to come get me TWICE! He is never usually a problem for them... they always comment he is such a laid back happy baby. We'll see how he does.

I love those valances. I'm wanting to change what's in my dining room on the window behind the window seat. And, I have to yucky vertical blinds on there too. I use them though. The sun hits that window every afternoon and it makes it an oven. Those valances would look good covering them! Have a great day at the gym. Tell Aidan I said to be a good boy! I'm sure he'll listen to me....ahahhahahaha. My own kids don't....ahahahhahaaa

Love the fabric in the valances.
I'm sure Aiden will be fine, he's just being awkward because he's a male. LOL
