~I Made A Banner~

Happy Friday my friends!!!  
Another weekend ahead of us and our weather is still hot and beautiful, awfully windy today, but a little cooler (in the 80's F, lower 30's C) and still SUNNY!
The sun is the reason I had to do something in my little sunroom today.  It blazes through the West facing window and cooks me while I am trying to do bookwork or visiting all of your fabulous blogs.

Originally I had a set of draperies on this window, but I took them off and put them on the window just to my left here.

See the sun blazing there?  This room gets SO warm!

But I had to put something on my naked window, and one day this idea came to me!  I had seen a banner that The Pear Tree Cottage has in the dining room, so maybe that was what made me think of it.

I knew exactly which fabrics to use, I had them all in my fabric stash already.  It also pulled the turquoise and red into this room rather well, I think!

I am very pleased with it.

What have you been working on?  Have you had any bright ideas lately?  Do tell.

Yes, you did make a banner and it's so cute! I've never made one! Maybe you should give us a tutorial! Don't get too hot.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

That banner looks like something I could create for my bulletin board or one of the windows in my classroom!

More Modern Modesty

Your banner is delightful..really lightens up the room and so nice to see out those pretty windows. I have been making baby blankets for a new grand due next month! ;D

Dear Cindy, I love your banner and your sunroom! You are so clever. I haven't seen your sunroom before and it looks like a lovely place to blog. I think it's going to rain here today and it's still quite warm and humid. Have a lovely weekend my friend. Blessings, Pamela

You have such great decorating ideas Cindy. Your banner looks so cheerful and I love the view beyond the windows.

Keep cool.

Let's see, I'm working on organizing my art room-it's a slow process!
Have a wonderful weekend.

Oooooh, I love the banner Cindy. Great choice of colors. You know what? Now everytime I see the color turqoise I think of you my dear friend. Love all the touches of it you have incorporated around your sweet cottage. I love it! Happy Sunday to you my dear friend.

Much love,

I would have never thought of this...and it's perfect. Don't you love being able to sew something with fabric you already have? It always makes me feel better about my fabric hoarding!

kristie@thedecorologist said...

I absolutely ADORE your banner!

I've had a few ideas lately but it's too hot to do anything about them. Hee hee.
