I don’t say this often … but OMW!!! (That means Oh My Word!)
I almost can’t believe I’m here. Posting. On my blog. Do you remember me at all???
It’s been about 3 months since my last
confession post, so I feel like a little round of catch-up might be in order. Well….the sale of our home FINALLY went through on July 3rd. We were supposed to close on June 28th, so we frantically and crazily got ourselves moved out of our home on June 27th..only to find ourselves sitting in a tiny two-bedroom apartment while our home lay empty. Do I sound frustrated!?!? Heavens no, I’m so over that feeling!
Anyway, we have moved into our temporary housing while we wait for our next home’s completion. We’re hoping for September, but we’re not holding our breath. In the meantime, I still have a sewing wall – only now it’s in the dining room! Also, my husband still has a study – only now it’s in the dining room!
Life in a temporary place is definitely …er…um…what’s the word…interesting?
In our apartment, life in temporary housing is BLAND! We don’t want to be charged any move-out fees, so we’re not hanging anything on the walls, hanging any curtains, or even putting up much furniture. For those of us who whip up curtains for everything from windows to sinks, this is quite a challenge … AND, leads me to my next and long overdue tutorial.
Soooooo…. if you can’t beat ‘em, JOIN ‘EM!
Here’s how I made the bunting in 8 minutes:
I may not have been converted into a laundry-lover, but I do enjoy the laundry room now. That’s got to be worth something, right!?!
Now for the lowdown:
COST: about $10. The triangles were $6, the binding will cost about $3. I had the binding from a previous project, so FREE for me! You know I love that!
TIME: 8 stinking minutes!!! I am SO not fibbing on this. I timed it. SO and SEW easy. You’ll hug yourself for this, I promise!
I’m quite certain this will be a great project for any space … temporary or permanent. AND, I’m quite certain you’ll see this bunting in my next home … which currently looks like this:
It’s good to back. Tell me what YOU”VE been up to!!!
