Toile Tuesday

Here I am finally posting. (computer struggles....don't ask....laptop coming soon) I took the children with me today shopping for very specific material for curtains. Success!
To tell you about my lovely purchases I'm joining Toile Tuesday over at Pretty Organized Palace.
Here is what is going to become the curtain for Little Peanut's room. The pink and white toile is actually a remnant that I bought at W*lm*rt a couple of years ago. I knew I would use it but wasn't sure when. I picked out the striped ticking today. I'm excited to see it all finished.
Our living/dining/kitchen are all open and connected. We have a cathedral ceiling as well. The two windows, one in the living room and one in the dining area, let it lots of light and I don't want to cover them up so I'm only planning a valance for the two rooms. Our entire home is white walls with white windows and white cabinets. I have some touches of light purple in the kitchen and dining area with some pictures that used to be in our old house. Here is what is going over the windows. I'm very excited about the material. Now I just have to work up the courage to actually cut the material. Sewing should be no problem because it's just straight seams. It should look similar to this valance but I'm going to add the black ribbon for some punch. Wish me luck. I hope to have this done before the last Tuesday in March so I can add it to the last Toile Tuesday.
