Welcome to Friday! Time for SPF . . . let’s go! First up, is something I made myself:

Something I made - 3

Last summer I made this valance for our home office. I’d taken a community ed course on making window treatments, and this was my first attempt at doing it myself.

I’m not sure whether the plaid fabric choice was brave or stupid. It definitely made things more challenging. I had to piece it together, and the seams are hidden inside the pleats. Piecing the fabric was the only part that required sewing—the rest was all done with glue.

Then I decided to make a pillow out of the leftover fabric. Of course, I can never be happy with something plain. I wanted a cool pattern, so I used my rusty geometry skillz to come up with this. It’s not perfect, but it works.

Next, the tools of my hobby:

Something I'd like to get rid of/give away

This is one day’s harvest. I’ve been picking this many tomatoes a couple times a week for the last few weeks. The neighbors turn and run when they see me coming. My co-workers refuse to take any more. J.P. and I can only eat so many BLTs. Penny does what she can with the grape size, but her little tummy can only take so much.

And speaking of Penny, here’s a shot of our veggie-eating corn dog:
