The great swap out!

Good morning!

I am both happy and sad to report that I did make the 1 curtain panel that I had planned to make yesterday. That is the good news. The bad news is that after spending almost 4 hours making the scalloped edging....I gave up. I made the scalloped part too small and after sewing 3 yards it resembled small triangles more than being circular shaped. Ugh. I haven't totally given up but for now I'm going to just make basic panels and get them hung then make a decision whether I'm going to go back and add some sort of edging.

I'm also happy to report that I slept really well last night! Today will be a shopping day and I'm hopefully I will find a gem or two for the nursery.....lamp(s) included.

On a different note:

Wednesday while at a local children's furniture store looking for a bookcase I stumbled upon this:
A full sized off white headboard for $20!

I quickly snapped this picture and sent it to Jacob to ask if I could get it. He agreed and even picked it up later for me. We swapped out our old boring headboard in the guest room that I have been meaning to paint for probably 3 years.

Yesterday I listed our old headboard on Craigslist for $20 and within 3 hours it was gone. Just like that!

Not too shabby!

Wish me luck today!
