She's a Sewing Machine! (no pun intended)

Handmade Nursery Curtains My mom and dad left this week to return home, after 2 glorious weeks here in New Orleans.  If you read my blog, you've probably realized by now I enlist the help of just about anyone who enters our house.  My folks are no exception!  Along with helping to care for Baby Beau, my parents lent a serious helping hand around the homestead.

While my dad and Joe finished up last minute trim work and other details in the nursery, my mom powered through three impressive sewing projects: the curtains, crib skirt and bumper pad.  She's finishing the bumper pad on her better sewing machine at home, so you'll have to wait to see that and the skirt, but the curtains are finished... hung... and AMAZING!  The fabric is a simple tone on tone stripe that blends with the wall color, but still adds dimension.  The rods were an inexpensive buy from Bed, Bath and Beyond.  The design is a top pleat with rings.

I couldn't be happier with how they turned out and I couldn't be luckier to have such incredible folks.  The nursery is ALMOST done... I'm just waiting on a few decorative details to arrive in the mail.  I promise to post pictures soon!
