    Very nice indeed! Are the valances going in your room? So what's the project you have in mind?

    Rose, you silly-billy! you don't need to 'get' help...you need to 'give' help. Finishing a project is what we all ruminate over, you've got it down. like your valances. SIL, loves bears, don't let him see them! :wink:

    Well, there is a story behind those valances.

    Two years ago when my son was born, a teacher I worked with loaned me a "pack n play"--a portable play pen/baby bed.

    I have used it at my mother's house for almost 2 years with no problems. I was able to keep it in pristine condition like when I received it.

    The DAY before I was to take it back to school to give it to her, my husband ran over it with the SUV. ugh. The pack n play itself was not damaged, but the cover that it is stored in was ruined.

    I went to her with 3 options:
    1. I could make her a new cover (what I preferred);
    2. I could buy her a new pack n play;
    3. I could pay her what a new one would cost.

    she chose option 4--could you make these curtains for my grandson's room? I said sure---just because I felt HORRIBLE about the damage I had done.

    whew! I will never use anything on "loan" again!!!

    as for my next project---
    I am going to ask hubby for mother's day/anniversary gift for these new die cuts so I can make a choo choo train for my son (and also use in my business)

    as well as the tracks to go along with it:

    He is into Thomas the Train and Elmo right now. I can't find an Elmo die cut (probably a copyright issue), so I'll stick with trains.

    You did a great job on the valance!! And, yes, tell hubby I said you've earned the both new die sets (especially since he caused all the valance work to start with...) :wink:

    sorry about the SUV and the "pack n play" accident, isn't that always the way :(
    However the curtains turned out real cute and bet the lady is tickled pink. Great job....on your part, not your husbands part :wink:
