Weekend's Ways...

For us, it was a day spent mostly indoors,
aside from a quick trip to the post office.
The skies got darker in the late morning
and we enjoyed scattered showers
and low rumblings in the sky most of the day.
It was a good day to be indoors...
and I had much to do in our home.

I was able to accomplish a few loads of laundry,
clean the kitchen, and do a little sewing.
Ally took advantage of the time
and worked on a few chemistry experiments...


The younger ones entertained themselves
with some toys they hadn't used in quite some time...



After her experiments,
Ally worked on her new dress...

I helped her with her bodice
and she helped me, later,
by sewing one of Will's new curtains. ;o)

After I helped her,
I sewed some quick curtains for the lil' girls room...


As Ally worked on one of Will's curtains,
I worked on the curtains for our living room...
and I had a little helper...


I only finished one for our living room

and Ally only finished one for Will's room
but we hope to finish them soon.
Why am I making so many curtains today?? lol
Since we can't paint the walls in base housing,
I thought it was way past time that
I 'spruced' things up otherwise.
They aren't fancy curtains, mind you,
but they'll add a cozy touch to our home. ;o)

I hope y'all are enjoying your weekend
and have a blessed Lord's Day tomorrow.

Sounds like you've been having a wonderful week.

What a lovely way to spend a rainy afternoon! I agree, curtains make a room, no matter what the walls are doing.

I need to make new curtains for our upstairs hallway. I am never pleased with what I make. I have made about 6 so far.....

And as Samuel gets older, I will have to pick your brain about all this chemistry stuff!! He is a science fan, specially chemistry. Go figure.

Have a peaceful rest of the weekend.

Connie ~ Thank you for your kind words.

Chyrll ~ Busy but wonderful, yes. ;o) Great to hear from you.

Madeleine ~ I'm not terribly fond of what I make with curtains either but they certainly work for now.
Ally does love chemistry. I think our curriculum really makes a difference, too. ;o)

I"m so glad I can get on your blog today!! I was having problems getting on and now I'm having problems getting on Ally's and Courntey's Contemplations. I don't know what the deal is, but I'm glad I can get on yours again.

The picture of you and your little helper is sooooo sweet. Anoter seamstress in the making!

Kristi ~ So sorry there's been trouble visiting. Hope it works out soon. Yes, Carolynne loves to help... she loves to clean, too. ;o)

Kelli ~ It was an enjoyable weekend. Oh, those particular curtains were for Beth and Carolynne. Will's are coming up soon... they're camo.

Julie ~ So glad the comments came up. ;o) I do intend to teach all my girls to sew. It's been a real blessing to be able to make our own clothing and such.
