Earlier on in the week, the weather was glorious - hope you had plenty of sunshine and blue skies too?
I didn't quite realise what a difference a sunny day does to my mood. It's been so yucky for so long you get sucked into feeling exactly how the weather is. Maybe age has something to do with it?!
Anyway, I thought I would brighten up this damp and dreary day (hopefully) by showing you my completed curtains - yippee.
I'm really pleased with them and unlike the hall curtain where squares were made up of multiple triangles, I went for a more simpler square. I never find constructing and sewing it the problem, or indeed the tabs at the top, it's the laying out, measuring and cutting of the lining. Each curtain is big and laid out took up most of the lounge floor so you can imagine trying to do the lining was a little tricky.
I was then worried about making the other curtain not exactly the same length as the other one, but after lots of cussing and sweaty palms, I got there. I've also repainted the room so it's very cheery. The other 3 males in the house don't like the colour - tough really.
Lastly, my bargain vintage lucite rosebud necklace off Ebay. The photo doesn't show clearly the lovely shade of green it is unfortunately.
I'll sign off now till next week - it's Master Jack's 9th birthday on Wednesday and we've got a little party this weekend for him so my head will be full of baking, wrapping and clearing up!
Have a good weekend!
