New CurTainS and FloWerS..

Well since I missed yesterdays whatcha working on wednesday, I am posting what I made yesterday...I took down the winter curtains and made some everyday curtains...I stained and baked the flour sack material and then embroidered the word "Crow" on them..

They are actually supposed to be applique but I chose not to do them that way..the crows are holding a little penny rug in their mouths..
Yesterday and Tuesday were odd days for me..just wasn't feeling quite I went to the doctors yet again..and wouldn't you know that when I get there I feel fine..just feeling anxiety and having heart palpitations..and not sure went in and got an ekg and everything was fine..not sure why I was feeling this way cause I everything was fine at home..this happened a couple of years ago and did the same thing..and everything was fine..not sure if it was hormones...I really don't know..but I feel great today....anyway I stopped by the grocery store for some dinner last night and picked up some flowers to cheer me up...:) and look who is helping me.. Pody is smelling the flowers..she is my baby girl....:)
I hope your thursday is a good one...yesterday was gorgeous and I so wanted to go for a walk with Tucker but wasn't sure what was going on with me...and today is looking okay and Mike took him to work with him..guess I will just sew..and watch Return to Cranford on line..if you all saw the first better watch the 2nd one on line..
I loved the first one..and was reading someone elses blog and saw that there was a 2nd one I got on line and am watching the first one..the second one is on my DVR...if you like period will love this one too..another one I highly recommend is "Lost in Austen" you will love this modern day period can rent this now...I think I would love to buy this one..look it up on Netflix to read what it is about..Take care and have a great day.:)

  6. I LOVE LOVE LOVE those curtains Gina:) Pody is looking ever so cute there smelling the posies, my Kiah likes to smell flowers too! I was so inspired by your breadbox re-do I ordered that set of labels from Rene ( did I tell you this already??) I'm gonna have hubby build me a little cabinet with a door on the front and do the label on that:)

  11. Cute little Pody...sometime we have stress and we don't even realize it. Our body tries too compensate...and those darn hormones can cause havoc too! Take your curtains!

  12. Glad you're feeling better Gina!
    I love your curtains. I need to get started on some too....if my wrist ever gets better.
    Oh....I loved the Cranford series...both of them! I have a hard time saying which moment was my favorite.
    I don't think I've ever watched a series that had me cracking up one minute, then bawling the next.
    Was looking in the BBC catalog to buy them.
    Can't wait for Emma next starting next Sun.
    Take care!

  13. Gina,
    I'm back on my computer now...and will work on what you need here in the next day or so.
    Love your curtains!! Your kitty looks so cute smelling the flowers. I'm glad that you are feeling ok now.
    Take care,

  14. Love the curtains Gina. Did you do that on machine? Or by hand?

  15. Hi Gina, you are always busy doing something. I wish I could get half as much as you done. ;)

    Glad you are feeling better. The flowers are pretty and the kitty-cat so very sweet.

    You have a great rest of the week.


  16. Your curtains are very nice! I also like your bouquet of flowers!!

  17. The curtains are just darling. Glad you are feeling so much better.

  18. Hope you're feeling better. I know how scary that can be. Love your curtains and loved seeing Pody with your flowers.
