Want a FREE Teddy?? Read on...

Hello my fine friends! :0)

Recently Tia of http://christopherandtia.blogspot.com/ graciously agreed to host a giveaway for a lostsentiments Tiny Amigurumi Teddy! (very exciting I know! ;0)) and I had to come share it with YOU :0)

Tia did a wonderful job of explaining away why mothers would love a tiny, faceless amigurumi teddy for their little one and sprinkled throughout she shares her own day to day mother trials, tribulations, victories and praises (o.~) of her children... it had me laughing out loud! This is good stuff! :0)

So please, read her blog to enter for a free amigurumi teddy and while there - why not follow this kind hearted lady?? ^.^ Let's keep discovering each others lost sentiments one at a time!

All the best, always,

It's Curtains for you! Curtains I say! :0)

A sister of mine moved in recently and the windows in her room were in need of some curtains :0). While the room she stays in is lovely with natural lighting (2 windows) when the sun comes up at 6:30AM she doesn't need to know - BUT the sun has been waking her up for lack of curtains. Candace and I ran to Target to peruse the curtains and quickly realized the "standard" sizes were either too long or too short for her windows... so to the fabric stash! Though we started with a wine color we found the fabric was too short for what we needed and went rummaging again. Much to our surprise we found a green lot that was big enough and a nice white/green fabric to reinforce the back side and keep the room energy efficient :0). heck yes!

Here are a few pics of our first curtain making escapade! :)

28 cut outs for 14 loops for curtains and the fun begins ^.^

folding material to pin for sewing! :0)

let the sewing begin! :0)

Me sewing the 2nd pane... almost done! :0)

completed :0) 2nd curtain

thermal backing :0)

and the loops all have reinforced material too! :0)

All in all, I'm SO proud of us :0) It was an undertaking and I've gained A LOT of respect for seamstresses :0)
