~ window topper ~

I'm going to be re-doing my crochet room so I can get a set of bunk-beds in there for my grandsons when they spend the night with us (they've been sleeping on the floor with lots of blankets).  I've been standing in the middle of the room looking around, trying to figure out what to do - it's obvious that I need to get rid of alot of stuff.  I just don't know where to start. 

I looked at my window and decided that I needed a new topper and I thought of the little african flower lapghan that I've been keeping on the couch.  I threw it over the curtain rod to see what it would look like and I've decided that I like it.  I like it alot.  :)

  17. Get rid of stuff? GASP!! After 2+ yrs of de-cluttering all my old craft stuff I said NO more! Yet the yarn is slowly growing in the hall closet, LOL! Um, good luck with organizing, ha ha!

    By the way, I love the new topper! Great idea...maybe I'll do something for my bare kitchen window. :)
    Cheers! ~M
