I am so pleased with the progress that was made this weekend. The butterfly curtains are finally done - thanks to mom for some assistance and motivation on that one. I am so in love with these curtains. I think the fabric is just beautiful, and it is so special to me. We used this fabric at our wedding as a backdrop for pictures and to decorate the doorways and stairs of the hall. It has been re purposed so many times (always as curtains for one room or another) and now I am so happy that Baby C has them in her room.

Next was the office. I was horrified when I looked back at this picture and realized what horrible shape the office was in and also how long ago I posted about trying to get this mess under control. Here we are almost 3 months later and with a little help from the men in my life it has been transformed into a functional office, with the added bonus of finally having a place for my crafting supplies. And the best part - I was able to dig out my sewing machine and get it ready for some serious use (none too soon either).

The Office/Studio - now I can finally get some work done!!!

And the memory quilt... The blocks are all cut, the photos have been ironed on and it's on its way. It took quite a while to figure out exactly how I wanted the pattern to work, but I'm happy so far with it and while I planned to start sewing this weekend I will be starting tomorrow. I was afraid that it just wouldn't be finished in time, but I think that I will make it, I'll have to machine quilt it, but it will be finished.
