Bonus sewing day!!

I'm WAY ahead of schedule on my finals!! I only have a paper and a few statistics assignments to go and I'll be DONE for the semester!! I got lucky with the finals schedule this semester, since I only have one actual sit-down final and the rest are take home... and the one sit-down final is today at 2:30 (I know, finals on a Saturday--what were they thinking?!)... but at least it will be out of the way!!

THAT means I get to start sewing tomorrow instead of Tuesday!! I have a lot to work on. I just added to my list three 59 3/4 in. wide roman shades for Art's new house... as long as they are cheaper than $60 a piece, we have success. I tell ya, blinds are so freaking expensive!! But I actually like roman shades better anyway. And they will be all white, so that fabric should run pretty cheap. They need to go all the way up (because the sun is so BEAUTIFUL when it sets in the back of the house) and all the way down (because the sun is so BRIGHT when it sets in the back of the house)... so I'll be looking for a pattern for those soon.

I'll also be making curtains for those three windows, but that will come later. Art and his roommate mark do not care about window treatments, trust me. ;)

Here's a picture of the back of the house where two of the roman shades will go (the other window is just to the right). Man, that sun is gorgeous, isn't it?
