Didn't get any hooking done today as Grandma was on a mission to purchase fabric and make a soccer themed valance for my grandson. Yesterday it was obvious the childhood valance needed to come down since Zach is now 13.
Picked up the fabric, came home, ate lunch and proceeded to make his valance. He didn't want curtains....just the valance. Dang...forgot to take a picture of it after I hung it. Anyway, my grandson is elated with his 'day after' gift. And this was a wonderful Christmas for me.
Thought I'd show you my progress, or lack of, for the present project which is an adaptation of Julia Eastman Stubbs rug. I've chosen the horse trainer part on the far right side of her design.
Happy calm and relaxing day after Christmas to everyone. And in a few days we will be welcoming in a new year. I'm excited and confident in the next few years ahead for the growth and protection of our country in every way. Here's looking forward to a wonderful 2017 for all of us.
You got that valance done quickly, especially since you had to go shop the day after Christmas. What a good grandma!ReplyDelete
Took my grandson to the movies tonight and he'll spend the night. Making memories.
I look forward to our new president making America great once again.
God Bless America!
