After several weeks of joking, last week I gave a co-worker/friend a list of all the little things on my to-do list that I’ve been ignoring for far too long and gave her full permission to bug me about them.

The list contains things like sew the belt loops back on my lady grey coat (done!), order harp strings (done!), and fix tiny rust spot on car (not done!).

In this spirit, here are two things I finished recently.

Curtains!

About a year later than I intended to, I finally made curtains for the built-in bookcase in my living room. The clearance home dec fabric I bought ended up being a bit stiffer than I thought it’d be, but it still looks miles better than being able to see the miscellaneous stuff on the shelves!

Swatch

And I handed off a sample for a new design on Monday. I don’t know when it’ll come out (probably fall), but I really like the way this one turned out and I can’t wait to show you the whole thing!

Some other things I hope to finish soon:

  • a pair of socks for Mr. Cleaver,
  • spinning my Sheep Heid yarn, and
  • shipping out some submission swatches!
