I just finished sewing the curtains for the living room windows and gosh darn it!! I am proud of myself! They look so good, don't you agree? I found some cool retro-style fabric and made four panels and then used some vintage ribbon from a yard sale to hold the curtains open. It's uncanny how well the ribbon matches the fabric colors, considering I bought the ribbon last summer and forgot all about it until I went searching for something to hold the curtains open. I like the contrast in the patterns and it makes the room look cool!
Then as a reward to myself for finishing the curtains, I picked some rhubarb and made a batch of Rhubarb Dream bars. You can find the recipe here. I substituted 2 cups of strawberries for the rhubarb so it is more like Strawberry-Rhubarb Dream bars, but whatever-- it's yummy!! I'd invite you over for a piece, but I don't think I can hold myself back much longer... Where's the knife and plate??
(*munching and chewing*) I hope you liked the pictures. I'm playing around (*swallowing*) and learning as I go. (*licking crumbs off the plate*) I'm being rude.. eating while I type, but the bars are just so good!! I'll save you a piece!
