bit of sunday sewing
mum has moved into senior housing and she needed a tiny window treatment. got this nice little valance sewn up for her. the fabric came from a rather large box of civil war fabric received this week from an internet quilter whom i've never met in person. wanted to make the valance without spending any money. found this lovely henry glass shirting and some red print for an accent stripe and managed to have just enough of the shirting for the job. maintenance will come and move it up to the proper place but for now we get to make sure it fits, which it does. i am not a drapery seamstress by any stretch but can manage the few straight seams this project required. *** my situation has not improved; in fact, worsened a bit but will only focus on gratitudes today--pretty good health, a place to hang out during the day, place to catch up on sleep and fix/eat meals and shower, extra time with family and sporadic moments of what seems as normalcy in an otherwise chaotic maelstrom of days. not perfect or ideal, but life is still good........by the way, have just about weaned off facebook for various reasons; please do not take offense as i have "unfriended" everyone, no exceptions, for the foreseeable future.
