Five Question Friday - 8/13/2010

Friday the 13th!  I feel like I need to go rent a movie, LOL.  Here are the Friday Questions from My Little Life.  I am filling them out while I have the embroidery machine chugging away at finishing designs on the last four burp clothes of twelve.  Remember you can join in the fun, add your answers, and link up at 5QF too!

1. Have you ever visited another country?  Yes.  My dad and took a trip to Africa, visiting England on layover then Zimbabwe, Tanzania and Kenya.  I also made a couple overnight trips into Canada when living outside of Seattle.

2. Where is the strangest place you have ever been?  Africa, LOL.  Nothing like going to another continent to feel out of place.  It is very "English" in a lot of things, and so band-aid versus plaster type things were always happening.  Plus, there is a big difference in the foods served.

3. What is your favorite season?  I love the heat of Texas during the summer, but I love winter/Christmas as my favorite "season".  Nothing like a little cold weather (maybe two weeks at the most, LOL) and Christmas Carols to set the mood.

4. What one song will always cheer you up?  Lean on Me, or Shine (by the Newsboys)

5. What Disney character do you resemble most?  I wish I was as lovely and pure of heart as one of the Disney princesses, but more likely I more resemble one of the wicked villains.  Not a really bad villain, but one that isn't always on the up and up like I should be.

Quick Kitchen Curtain Tutorial

How comfortable with sewing are you?  Would you like to a quick and easy project that you can do yourself to create a window valance/ruffle out of any fabric you find?  Here you go!  There are only three lines of stitching in this project.  Very little measuring, and gorgeous results.

This project actually started almost two years ago, when I painted our current kitchen a pale ice blue we had left over from painting a bedroom.  To try something different, I painted the ceiling of the kitchen a deep, high-gloss navy.  You can see just a little bit of the ceiling in the finished curtain picture below.  As much as I adore the contrast in the paint colors, trying to find a ready made curtain for the kitchen has proven impossible.  Lots of kitchen curtains are to frilly, not the right color, too white, so on and so forth.  Did I mention too expensive?
So, when I brought home this fabric from Sewing Club and was trying to figure out what 'it' wanted to be, I decided it would be perfe…
