Moms Are The Best!

My parents came down this weekend to visit. This was the first time they've seen the house since we've moved in. We've been here for a couple months now, and the place really feels like a home. Of course, there are still about 1000 things we want to do. Today, we got to cross one more thing off the list. This afternoon, Mom and I went to Quilts by the Oz, in Moline, and I found some awesome fabric for kitchen curtains.

I was going to try to make the curtains myself, but I'm no fool, and when my mom offered to sew them up this afternoon, I immediately accepted. She is making a valence, two panels, and tie-back sashes. She is  a master at all things sewing and I'm so grateful to be able to benefit from her awesome skills. This would have taken me about three weeks to accomplish, and she's going to make them in a few days.

Here is a before  picture of the kitchen window Stay tuned for the after picture!

And thanks to my dad, too, for hanging up the curtain rods!!

I've got to go now, we are off to the Redstone Room for a John McCutcheon concert!
