Five Question Friday - 12/3/2010

It is Friday again!  On the one hand I am excited, since I get to go help decorate at Mr. SD's mom's place, but on the other hand I have sew much sewing to get down too!  Mom found several new fabrics for me to make up into Kitchen curtains.  I promised to get them done last weekend, but ended up with a lot of hip pain due to being preggars.  So... I am going to get them done this weekend, and that way she can change out her fun summer kitchen curtain for a wintery snowflake fabric.  I have to admit that the fun summery one is just not cutting it with all the christmas decor in the kitchen/dining room now, LOL!

Here are my 5QF answers.  Remember you can link up too!

1. What's on the top of your holiday wish list and why?  I want everyone to have a good holiday.  You know when everything goes smoothly, or at least no one gets their knickers in a knot when it doesn't go perfectly.  I want to create some fun memories that we can remember forever.  I think that family is what makes the holiday, not the gifts.  {Though of course gifts are always welcome!}
2. What is your favorite Christmas gift from the past?  When Santa gave me one custom riding boot, and my parents gave me the other boot.  Here is a picture of me doing a dressage test on Image wearing those boots several years after that Christmas.
3. If you had life to do over, what would you be when you grow up?  I hope that I would be right where I am now.  I love being a parent, I love being in Texas, and I am very content where I am.  It is funny how we can have such grand plans as teenagers on how we are going to change the world, or make a lasting mark.  But, when the future come we begin to realize that our little corner of the world is right where we are meant to be.  Not that I don't wish that Ms. Diva will grow up and change the world, LOL!

4. When do you put up your tree?  A week or so after Thanksgiving.  We don't have room for our tree (yes, we have a 'fake' tree that lives in a box) right now.  So our tree is being used at my parent's house.  We are going to set it up this weekend.  Another thing to add to this weekend's to-do list, LOL!  It will be fun to see how much a one-year-old Ms. Diva will be.  Last year she slept through everything.

5. What is your favorite Holiday?  Christmas of course!

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…
