sew pretty and the guest bathroom edition

time for me to blog some more... :)
my precious sister becca came to visit me over the Fourth of July weekend!
it was such a blessing to have her here especially since chris had his first shift of day/night call up at the hospital. so, becca was here to keep me company, snuggle beside me at night, and help make some absolutely fabulous curtains!!! check out her blog for the skinny on the whole weekend... http://gibbgabb.blogspot.com/2010/07/sewing-for-usa.html
here's a few pics that i took to show you the final product...

first we have the lovely grommet top drapery panels in the living area...
to save a bit of money we chose to do just a band of the fabulous
(but more pricey) printand finish off the rest of the panel with a great muslin
(NOT muslim...bahaha) fabric.
in le kitchen i wanted to do something a bit more funky and fun.
a good friend in amarillo, mrs. elizabeth mason, has some fantastic
curtains that she and her mom made and this is
my interpretation of them. :) we had to be a little creative to figure it out but i think it came out great... my favorite feature is the little cloth covered buttons holding back the little flaps!
and here's another before/after for ya!
this is the guest bathroom before....
and now it looks like this!!!...
yay, Target and your super cute shower curtain that just happened to
have all the colors needed to pull together our wedding gifted towels! hooray!
this is actually the first room in the house to be completed... almost. :)

this weekend i worked in the master suite, painting the bathroom, taking down a huge over-toilet cabinet, updating the lighting and adding some finishing touches.... once that's completed i'll post more pics! oh, and i painted our front door blue... reminds me of Oxford, England and all its blue doors! yay!
