Martye and I have been busy getting ready to open The Provision House store. I'm working more on the construction side of things and making sure that w're on the same page with the contractor. Martye is working on the decorating side of the store. She loves decorating and doing little projects like this. I can't help but think about a year ago when her and our daughter in-law, Holly, were working on the nursery for our granddaughter.
Holly had been slowly working on the nursery but was stuck with what to do about the windows. Cowgirl A was due the middle of July and in June Holly realized that she wanted to make a ruffled valence for both windows in the nursery. However, Holly needed a sewing machine and someone who could help her sew, that's where Martye came in! Holly assured Martye that they would just need to sew straight lines and that she found a tutorial online, easy right? Martye's sister, Mary, helped give them some direction. Holly and Martye worked hard for about a week. They would stay up measuring, ironing, sewing, ruffling until they would laugh uncontrollably from exhaustion. Anyhow, they made two ruffled valences, a crib skirt to match and liners for storage baskets! They were two busy women but completed the task before Cowgirl A was born.
I have to say, the nursery is cute and Holly and Martye did a great job! They are still so proud of their work, which they should be! I haven't seen the sewing machine since... I wonder when or if Martye is going to pull it out and start sewing something for the new store!
