Curtains for my craft room

Poppy is all better now and she is her happy self again. It is hot outside already. Poppy has chosen a cool spot, checking out a little ant while waiting for my husband to come home from the airport.
Does she really know that her human Daddy is on his way home? If I tell her "Michael, home." "Poppy waits for Michael." then yes, she knows.

While Poppy is on watch duty outside, I started on my craft room curtains inside. I bought a piece of fabric that has the pattern of these leaves.
I finally able to use up the curtain gathering band from my stash.
It looks better in real life.
Curtains are not popular in Florida and I could not find any net curtain easily. So I use voile instead, also from stash.
Here is my finished project.
I am happy with the result. It makes the room more cosy.

A few photos

In my last post I meant to upload a few photos over the weekend. Then the unexpected happened. We were without water for a couple of days. Poppy injured her paw and my husband had to travel at very short notice. Things are back to normal now. Here are some of the pictures I want to show you.

I am making progress with my crochet.
Took Poppy to the Juno dog beach. Boy, it was so windy. Poppy was on the far left.
Too cold for me to go near the water...and yes, that was when Poppy told me she has done something to her paw.
Don't often have cold and windy days in March. It is warming up though. I know Spring is coming when I see this plant in flowers.
Just love the color.
