Another Sewing Project

The curtain-less window in our kitchen has been irking me for quite a while. Over the weekend, I finally did something about it.

Thanks to this tutorial, I ended up with a cheery little valance.


Pom-pom trim happened to be on sale when I was last in JoAnn's so, of course, I had to pick up a few yards. I think it gives the curtain the perfect happy touch.


I used 1/3 of a bed skirt found on the Target clearance rack for $3.24 and a $1.38 curtain rod from Lowe's. I forget the exact price of the trim, but it couldn't have more than a few bucks. Turns out sewing is actually pretty fun!

While Adam was installing the curtain rod, we somehow misplaced the screws and got into our biggest fight this calendar year. Maybe ever. It's the only time I can remember us legitimately yelling at each other. We both accused the other of misplacing them and of not doing enough to help look. Mysteriously losing things just tends to bring out the worst in people.

After looking through the apartment several times, one of us finally thought to check above the top of the microwave cabinet. Lo and behold, there they were! Oh man, we laughed sooooo hard after that.


  1. I'm so glad you're enjoying sewing!! I wish I had more time to sew!

    I'm cracking up about your giant fight over lost screws! At least you have the pregnancy hormones excuse. :)

  2. That's so cute! And I grinned about your fight--it's good when you realize that your worst fights, as a married couple, are about relatively silly things (and thus soon over and forgotten)! :)

  3. so impressive! we should make a quilt over christmas or something!


You are awesome.
