Our lunch Monday with Donna & Dick was sooooo nice.
It was great to see them again.
And then after we ate we just had to go to the LQS. I was looking for some 'just perfect' fabric to make the curtains for my kitchen.
Well.... I didn't find any there but I did pick up a pattern that I have been wanting to make.
I hope I can get started on this one soon.

So..... since I also stopped in at Hobby Lobby (and still no perfect fabric there) I waited until we went to Holdrege yesterday and I stopped in at my most favorite quilt store.
After looking and looking at so many of her fabrics I thought I was going to have to give up and just order online.
Then I turned around and I saw a bolt of fabric just laying on top of some others.
OMGosh!! There it was! MY FABRIC!!!
When I finally started to breath again LOL I started to search for a coordinating piece and after searching through all the golds.... greens.... then finally the reds.... I found the one I wanted.
Here they are.....

And here are my curtains on my windows in my newly painted kitchen.

  1. Hooray!!!!! I'm surprised you actually found what you wanted. It never works that way for me LOL.


  2. Aww so cute...i love the contrasting colors... & great job on the curtains.

  3. I'm finally getting back to looking at blogs, and I see you found the fabric you wanted! The fabric and your curtains are beautiful. It was so good to see you and Don and have a little time together, and I regret that we didn't take the time to go to Holdrege. In the current Quiltmaker magazine there is a little blurb and picture about that store. I'll scan it and send it to you.


I try to always reply back to anyone that takes their precious time to comment on my blog so I sure hope you have your email enabled.
Thanks for stopping by and
I hope you're having a great day....Linda
