This is the weekend...

...I finally sew the curtains! Seriously. It's about time because I've had the fabric since August. I'm going to do it. I don't have many excuses left. We probably won't paint the room. We picked up the curtain rods at Ikea. The sewing machine is set up and I have plenty of thread. The only thing keeping me from sewing those darn curtains is my lack of willpower. And maybe the Chicago Marathon. I'm not running this year, but will be cheering and volunteering with Team Catholic Charities.

This week's Friday's Fancies theme is "blazers," so I'm going to take a little inspiration from my curtain fabric. Yellow, gray, and linen.

Indian Summer earrings from One Sydney Road

What are you up to this weekend? Any crafty projects? If you don't hear from me next week, that means the curtains aren't ready and I'm not about to admit defeat.

Will you be running the marathon? If not, will you be cheering or volunteering? If you're running...good luck!

  1. I love those booties!!! I tried to volunteer with Jon (he at the water station at mile 10.5), but they said it was already full. I'm on the sub list!

  2. THis weekend I'm hopefully going to make some apple sauce with the apples we've been getting from the CSA, and hopefully go pick my own tomatoes from a nearby farm and make some tomato sauce!

  3. Yay! I can't wait to see the final product of the curtain sewing expedition...think about how great it will feel to get done! I love that you took the inspiration to your Friday's Fancies ensemble. I love yellow + gray! Cheer loud at the marathon...I know {kp} is running :) Happy weekend! xoxo {av}

    p.s. be sure you've gotten all your entries in for my Lilly P giveaway!

  4. I love the grey with the yellow! This is the perfect combo of the two! I can't wait to see your curtains! I am crafting away tonight, home made apple butter canning is on my to do list - hopefully with some extra to give away next week on my blog!
    Have a fantastic weekend!!

  5. I am considering using this fabric in my living room. Will you please post pictures of yours so I can see what they look like? Thanks!
