5QF - 3/11/2011

1. Do you know what your REAL hair color is?  Yes!  After coming out with orange, black, and white after a dye job gone bad... I haven't dyed my hair since.  Something about looking like a clown puts me off home science experiments, LOL!
2. Do you plan ahead for summer, or fly by the seat of your pants?  Well... I work.  If we were looking at taking a trip with the girls when they are older I am sure that we would plan.  But I also hope that we do some fun spur-of-the-moment things as well.
3. What is your favorite meal to cook?  Favorite to cook {and eat!} is spaghetti.  Easy to do, very enjoyable and it always comes with bread!
4. Do you get offended by not receiving thank yous?  You should definitely say thank-you, if you aren't going to write a note.  My $0.02 worth though is that a formal, written thank-you is not required.  But... I am still working on writing thank-yous to family and friends for all the wonderful, thoughtful gifts we received after Ms. T's birth.  {I may not expect to receive them, but my momma trained me to write them, LOL}.
5. How did you meet your best friend?  At church as uneventful as that sounds.

News Update for Ya'all {Texan for everyone}; I set-up a blog { } for my book reviews, and would love to have you as a friend over there too!  Check out the great blog design I downloaded for free from Deluxe Templates.  The graphics were put together by .

Here is a sneak peak of my current project:

What do you think it is going to be?  You get one guess...  a quilt for Ms. Diva!  I am using the Fresh Flowers Jelly Roll from Moda.  I still haven't decided how I am going to back the quilt.  Only the future knows the answer {and God of course}.

While blog hopping recently, I came across this fantastic tip listed on Be Our Best.  Jill has compiled her Top 10 Blogging Tips in one place to help others out there in blogland.  Most of them I had heard of before.  But she had one on her list that I have only seen a couple times in practice, and have not heard a how-to do it before.Number 6: Add a clickable signature to your comments.If you add the following text to the bottom of the comments you leave for other bloggers, whatever text you insert for “Your Text Here” will be clickable.  You have to switch out “{“ and “}” with “<” and “>” then it will work.  Remember to also change the “Your Blog Address” part, LOL! {a href= }YOUR TEXT HERE {/a}Bonus Tip ~ I use Notepad to store all the html codes I use on a regular basis {the direct link code for my signature image, color codes, etc.}.  I added the above code to my Notepad page, edited it with my information, and saved it.  Now all I have to do …

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…
