Brrrrr! It's cha-willy

Here are the curtains I am doing for our bedroom. The sun ruined most of my green check ones but I was able to salvage a little. I will use it to make a two layer valance that you see here. Believe it or not, the top part was once a bedskirt that was given to me. It wouldn't work for our bed but has been re purposed. I will put white curtains trimmed in green underneath to cover the windows. Let me tell you with all those pleats, the valances are a lot of work but I don't mind.
Here is Jack's dresser scarf. It is, I think, just adorable! It shouldn't take him a lot longer to finish it I think.
I am nearly done with this peace. Working on the last name which is Star of Jacob. It has been fun!
So that is it for me on this cha-willy morning! We need to go and get a special lighter to get the furnace going. Last night got to the mid 40's and they say it will get down to 40 by week's end. Doesn't help also that silly me left my bedroom window opened over my head! LOL! Flannel sheets sure felt good! So God bless and keep you and huggles.

Clever idea, that reuse of the check. I like the look you created too. So Katie likes to play hide and seek while sleeping? Quite efficient if you think about it.
