Operation Project Month (#1 and #2)

Project #1 What To Do With the Window

Thank you all for your advice regarding my window in my baby girl’s room. After weighing all my options and not wanting to take on a project too large I decided to BUY (gasp!) and not make anything for the window. JcPenney was having their annual white sale and I got 3 sheers for $30. Yes that is waaaay spendy for me. But I really liked the shape of them and how they picked up on the curves of the mirror and Kayla’s name on the wall.

You can’t see it very well but I bought a cheap rod ($3) and then took off the brass end caps and added some crystal knobs to it. It was a simple touch but much better than the nasty brass end caps that were on there.

Project #2 Hang the QUILT

I am not sure if I mentioned that we are naming Kayla Elizabeth after Tim’s grandma Elizabeth. She is a beautiful and humble lady who has been a beacon of Christ’s love to her family. The special part about this quilt is she made it. It is a twin size so we will hang it on the wall until she is old enough to have a big girl bed. Then the quilt will be on her bed and after her Great Grandma Farrant (she turns 80 this week!) goes to heaven she will always have something sentimental made from the woman we hope she emulates.

I just wanted simple blocks made out of the fabric I chose. I am so pleased with how it turned out. THANK YOU GRANDMA!

This isn’t the greatest picture but this is what the quilting looks like on the back. I love the design and (of course!) the curves in it. It turned out way nicer than I could have imagined.
