New Curtains ~ and a Blue Monday

I haven't posted on a blue monday in a while . . . Not because I haven't been to some 'Blue' Places. I've been traveling.
Now that I'm home . . . there are a few projects that are calling my name.

I decided that our screened in porch needs some new curtains.
(check Buddy on his doggy perch that allows him access to the back yard AND a place to bark at everyone in the neighborhood)

I digress. I am replacing the curtains that have been there for years, It was beyond time.
I measured and cut out strips of fabric (good deal thanks to my JoAnn's coupon... I am done with the politics of Hobby Lobby).

The process is really simple, especially if you are using those hammer in grommets. . . The only sewing I had to do was the hem. It does take time. . . and a good hammer.

The end result gives us a shaded spot . . . where we can look at the BLUE pool and watch the hummingbirds at sunset.

Glad to be back ~

Don't forget to check in at Smiling Sally for more blues and Boogie Board Cottage for her Masterpiece Monday.
Y'all enjoy ~
