I recently received my beary, I'm so excited, first blog award from Mack and Sally Ann. I most graciously thank them. I can hardly bearlieve it I have only been blogging since April, an award, really? Are you sure? Must have been that ice cream recipe, you can buy anything with ice cream ... just kidding. It really is a lovely award!The translation of the award:
Your Blog is Like a Pearl - Rare, delicate and charming!
The rules to accept this award. You must post the link of who sent the award to you. (did that) Then pass the award on to 6 blogs with Pearl and Emotion. This will be difficult not the passing on but the choosing as there are so many wonderful blogs out there.
I hereby award the following blogs:

6. My number 6 awardee is yet to be determined. When I have made the decision I will pass their name on to you all.

Roman Shade Update
If you recall a while back I told you mom was making a roman shade for our family room window. She finished the shade back then, but this past week she finally made the valance and I supervised the installation.
Dad had finished installing the mounting board for the valance. Mom made the valance in three pieces so with the shade raised the valance won't hang funny. Two of the piece Velcro to the board and wrap the corners. The main piece of the valance mounts to Velcro on top of the board. Note that I have different clothes on in this next photo. Mom made me get ready for our trip into Chicago. Sorry about the brightness coming from the window. More about the Chicago in the future. Anyways this is the completed shade and valance. You can learn how to make your own roman shade here. Terrell writes wonderful complete instructions, and sells any of the hardware supplies you may need to make your shade successfully. I think mom did a great job, considering the shade is 61.25" wide. She was very pleased with Terrell's instructions. She might just have to make some more shades, perhaps for the bedroom.

I have to get off here now because mom needs to get busy with her sewing. At some point in the future I will share more about her sewing projects.

Grr-bye for now,

Your Mom could buy anything from Ikea and make it work with ease. How lucky you are.

Your Mom certainly is certainly quite the crafts lady - lucky you!
