But now we're making progress. We started with new couches that were delivered the first week of July. I chose a very neutral fabric so that we'll be able to change out colors easily if the desire strikes. After that, we painted the kitchen. I had already chosen the fabrics for the curtains, so we covered the tan with a sunny yellow. Sometimes, especially at night, the yellow looks a little bright, but most of the time we love it.

Mom was willing to help me make them, but lining up our schedules was a little challenging. Finally this past Sunday we were able to get it done. It was a non-stop work day. We started about 1:30 and finished around 10, leaving me with a few bits to finalize on Monday morning. But when Mom and Dad left on Sunday night, both curtains were hanging!!

|Final kitchen curtain|
On Monday morning, I stood on a chair and sewed the dragonfly buttons onto the curtain that hangs on the big window. It felt so good to be completely finished with them. I absolutely LOVE these curtains - at both windows. They just make me smile every time I walk in the room.
Thanks Mom!! I couldn't have done it without you!
