Whatcha Working on Wednesday

Well, here it is Wednesday again. I didn't post last Wednesday because I didn't have much to show. I was busy working on getting things ready for Katie's party. I have been working on making new curtains for our back door which is in our kitchen. When we moved here almost seven years ago I made valances from a country navy plaid fabric. I took them down back in November to put up some Christmas valances I bought. We decided to switch the navy in our kitchen to black. It has been a slow process and still is not complete. But I did get the curtains finished yesterday. The fabric is black and cream checked. I really had a hard time getting a good picture this morning. And they look grey.

I really like how they turned out.

After Katie's party Saturday Jimmy went to take the trash off and look what he found.....

Yep, he had to dig it out of the dumpster but it is in perfect shape! Right now I think we will use it in Katie's room. Not long ago he found a dresser at the dump. And I would like to paint both of them to match.

Katie wants to say, "Thank you" to all of you who left her birthday wishes yesterday. I let her choose what she wanted for lunch and she chose Papa John's pizza. And then we had ice cream cake.

She also won a meal from Captain D's on the radio so I took her to get that last night for supper. I think she had a great day.

Now head on over to Leslie's to see what everyone else has been working on.

I hope you have a great day!

Love the new valance and what a great dumpster find! Some people are just plain crazy (and wasteful) to toss out perfectly good things like that! Lucky you to have it!
Glad your DD had a great birthday!

I like the color combo in your valance.

That was a wonderful find! Why would anyone just toss that away?
I'm hoping someone will toss a good set of wicker furniture out! Wonder what the chances are of that?

Glad your daughter had a great birthday!
