My New Friends are SEW Nice

The day after I posted last week, I was invited to go to a girl's house in the ward where some of the young moms were gathering that day. They had started a sewing project together and were going to finish it. We were there from 9am to 2:30pm. (Carrie even took a nap in their pack'n'play) Throughout the day there were 10 moms and about 15 kids there all just playing and hanging out. It was crazy, but it was sooooo much fun! I got to meet the young moms in my neighborhood and now they know who I am, and I'll be invited whenever they get together to hang out next. I took along my sewing machine and made my kitchen curtain.
. .
What do you think? Right now it's stuck up with thumb tacks while I "test it out". Should it stay?...
I almost hate to admit, but I've become a Hobby Lobby frequent flier. I entered a Hobby Lobby for the first time not even two months ago while I was thinking, "Hmmm, I have a new house to decorate, what should I do?" And now it's become the best store ever. The proof, today I bought fabric for family room curtains (right) and fabric for a bedskirt and curtains in Carrie's "big girl" room (left)... I am very excited though for the tutu I'm going to attempt to make.
While I've been busy being so crafty, I've neglected the dishes in my kitchen sink. I guess I better get off the computer and go take care of some stuff ;) Until next time!

I do like the curtain. Good job, it should stay. Have fun with all your new projects! It's wonderful to have good friends in your neighborhood.

The curtains look really good. I think they should stay. Hobby Lobby is dangerous isn't it. Is there one in Maricopa? If you need some pointers on how to make the tutu, let me know.
