    Here is a pic of the curtains I made for the office (computer room at home). Nothing special but I wonder how long it will take my DH to notice them???

    I've also started to work on my Granddaughter's quilt. Here are the fabrics for it. I'm doing a pin wheel "Sweet Dreams" quilt for her for Christmas 2010.

    Love the fabrics. I must say that at my house, the drapes would go unnoticed FOREVER. I do like yours, though.

    I like your quilt fabric choices.

    As for the drapes, my husband would never notice. Some might be insulted by that, but not me! That means I can do anything I want as far as decor goes. This entire house is green with pink roses. Super girly and he couldn't care less.

    They are just above the vent, but I do need to hem them in the morning.

    It usually takes him about 2 weeks and then he asks how long (whatever) has been there. LOL He did notice I have pink and green floral curtains in the bedroom ---- he wants a southwestern look in there instead, so that is another project this year. A southwestern style/design quilt and of course I'll do curtains to coordinate.

    Nice curtains. The colors for pinwheel quilt are great. Your grand daughter will love the quilt. Pinwheel quilts are a favorite of mine.

    Love your new drapes. I'm doing some on my own
    windows with quilt batting behind them, muslin backing.
    Live in the central valley of CA, where we get Dragon's
    Breath heat in summer time and need the insulation.

    I remember putting in a whole 6 foot by 6 foot wall of
    mirrors in the kitchen. Took a few days before DH noticed
    it, and only because I insisted on standing in front of it
    while talking to him!! Loved him in spite of that small
    lack! Still miss him.

    Be sure to show us your quilt, I'm drooling with envy at
    all those luscious colors.
