So I have 2 friends that got a good deal on an old monogramming machine. Can we say EXCITED?! Yes, I am "that" southern girl that would monogram any and everything if I could!! But talking of monogramming had me wanting to sew. Last Christmas I got a sewing machine, which I wanted. The problem is I am not that knowledgeable on sewing. (I hope to expand my knowledge of the sewing world in the future.) However, my friend, Britney and her husband came over to help me with making curtains for my bathroom window and to set up the monogramming machine. I wanted to make something easy so I searched the internet for curtain ideas. Here are some pictures of the process:
|Is this what sewing fun looks like? yes!|
|Our almost finished projects...it was LATE so we were calling it a night.|
|Finished product! It was my first project completely solo so it does have its flaws, but did I mention I made it by myself??|
New years eve my family and friends gathered for a fish fry and some competitive game playing. There was some great food and even better desserts! We played the game "Guestures"...GUYS vs GIRLS! Who do you think dominated???
We ended the night playing "Apple to Apples." It never gets old bringing out good old fashion games! It was a fun new years eve night!
Now we had to get in bed not too long after midnight because we had to hit up the "BIG" Dillards' Sale! ( I am not condoning missing church for a sale...we were bad.) Every new years day, Dillards puts everything on sale and extra 50% off. It's comparable to black friday! I got a set of CuisineArt pots and pans that are originally $160 for $40!!! And 8 crystal glasses for $20. Very proud of the deals.
