1. New duvet cover and pillows -- see below
2. Cafe curtains -- check!
3. Change all doorknobs in the house -- see below
All are now complete! Here is how the duvet cover turned out. Someone named T. Dudley REALLY likes it. Seriously.
I sewed the top together, and then my good friend Amy, whom I met at BSF, helped me put it all together with button holes and the whole deal.
The doorknob project was including changing the hinges, but that's a two person job. New doorknobs make things feel so fresh and clean (well maybe if you'd experienced the old ones). They all look like this:
Even the guest bath looks so much cleaner (with our beautiful yellow tile).
The sliding closet doors were a little more tricky because they don't make the exact size of the old ones...
But my dad's dremel tool came in handy, and I proved to T that these new handles wouldn't be rigged (right, buddy?).

3rd busy season down. Now time to veg out with the man and pup and enjoy each other!
