I spent money yesterday!!

Goodmorning everybody!

Already for a long time I wanted some new net-curtains and one set of curtains for the room. Specially the net curtain at the back of  the room to the garden are looking terrible. Well, they did their job for a long, long time but nothing to do with them anymore. When I wash them, they don;t get really clean anymore and even here and there some holes and such appeared. But it's not that easy to find something you really like!! Must admit I am a bit picky LOL!
But yesterday Jan and I went to some stores I know they have a huge choice and not too expensive and even make the curtains for free. I am no good at all making them, on top I don;t have a sewing machine.
Boy, oh boy, it took us some time to decide which cloth to take(sometimes difficult, cause Jan and I sometimes have a totally different aste, get it????) Still we did manage to find something we both like. So now we will have in a few weeks new net curtains for the back AND for the front window and also curtains for the front too. The ones hanging there now are also far over there freshness date!!! And every evening when you close them they are annoying you more as looking at them. It did cost a bit of money, but I think we will be very happy when they hang there in a few weeks. Tadaaaaaa, we did that finaly!!!
Now what really must be changed also is the rug in front of the couch. Also beyond the point of cleaning really,so we have to find something to replace it, but I think we already saw something nice and that really for not much money at all. Okay, perhaps the quality will not be the very best, but good enough for us, as we don;t have masses of people walking over it every day.

So you could say it was a productive day yesterday! Even managed to do a little bit on designing in the evening. Now I could try to do something with the new colourchallenge of the forum and there is more to do there.
But I also want to go out a bit, with the nice weather at the moment and Sunday we have to do a short visit on Heidi, because she is having her birthday then. I recently talked to her on the phone and she is doing much better now. The wound is almost healed, but the most happy thing about it is that she has no pain anymore. So that is some good news.

And the freebie ? Yes I have one for you. It's a set of 3 quickpages, named them "Pleasant Dreams"
So I am planning to have a summery weekend, enjoy the sun, perhaps take a few pictures, and wish you all a terrific weekend too!

It' s not the easiest thing to do to find curtains that both likes - i know.
But so nice to get new ones.

Greetings from Sweden.

Good morning Kyra. New curtains somehow always make everything look so nice and homey. Best wishes for your friend Heidi's birthday. It's good to hear that she is better and with no pain.

Your QP's are wonderful. I'm very proud of how quickly you are adapting to your new program. You have a great day now. Hugs, Edna B.
