I mentioned wanting striped curtains in THIS story board.
I gave you a PEEK.

I took a costume class in college but def need a good refresher before I feel good about taking the plunge to buy a sewing machine. Yes folks, I want a sewing machine. Badly. And if it's not too much to ask for, I would like it to embroider too so I can make extra cute stuff. You know I'm a sucker for monograms...I just might monogram all of Lee's underwear before he deploys and pretend he's going to Summer camp. Cute, huh? Don't answer that.
