Here's a glimpse of what I was working on yesterday!
I've been chomping at the bit to sew some curtains for my kitchen window--it was just a matter of finding the right fabric. At one point I was in the fabric store taking pictures of swatches with my phone and discussing choices with Chris--this is the one we agreed on--I think it is called Syndey Lane Sun Blue.
This cotton ticking has that vintage, sun-worn feel that I love, and I think it compliments all of the little blue touches that fill my kitchen, and the butter yellow paint on the walls.
It's one thing to buy window treatments ready-made, its quite another to plan, measure, shop for fabric, cut, iron, and sew your own. I'm not sure it's a cheaper option than buying ready-made, but the smile on my face as Chris hung them made the whole process worth it!
