5QF ~ 4/1/2011

1. Have you ever had surgery?  Yup… two c-sections and my appendix removed in third grade {a long time ago, LOL}

2. Ever ride in an ambulance?  Yup… I have horses.  Do I need to explain further?  I think I am up to at least four rides in an ambulance from my childhood.  I haven’t had one in a ‘while’… keeping my fingers crossed.

3. How are you in a medical emergency? Panicked? Calm?  I can follow directions well.  If it involves horses I am good.  If it is people {strangers} I do okay, family… not so calm, but can still follow directions as I hyperventilate.

4. Do you have a garden? Flowers or veggies?  I love growing flowers, and we grow tomatoes too.  We did try a more extensive veggie garden last year, but kinda killed it, LOL!  So… this year we are going to just to tomatoes.

5. When did you move out of your parents house?  About 20.  Moved to Texas, and moved in with my Grandpa, LOL!  As others have pointed out… I have never truly lived on my own.  After Grandpa’s fall, Mr. SD moved in with us {Grandpa and I} to help with Grandpa’s care after we married rather than me moving out.

In case you missed it...  Here is a link to my post on how to create a click-able signature to leave with your comments on other blogs.  A quick and easy way for people to check out your blog from any comments you leave!

Add a ‘click-able’ signature to comments you make.

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…
