Making Curtains on a Snowy Day...in April!

Hello friends.  It is April 21, one month past the Vernal Equinox, and it is snowing.  We seem to be stuck in the land of perpetual winter here in Wisconsin!
I'm spending time today making curtains for Kristy's boys' rooms.  They just moved into a new house and the boys are very excited that Grandma is making curtains for them.  Kristy and I went with the boys to our local Hancock Fabrics store last weekend and let them pick out the fabrics they wanted.  So, try to imagine four boys, age 8-10 and very enthusiastic, in the fabric store.  It was quite the shopping trip!  We came home with a varied assortment of fabrics:

Conner's choice:
 Corey's choice:
 Cameron's choice:
Cory's choice:

The curtains will all be lined, to add some room darkening capabilities and to preserve the prints from fading from the sun.  I'm hoping the hum of the sewing machine combined with tunes from Sirius XM Radio will help with the never-ending winter doldrums...in April!
