So, it goes without saying that the things I am most proud of making are my children. But after them, come a whole slew of beautiful and meaningful results of hard labour. And today, I want to show you a project I finished months ago but that still brings me a little bit of happy every time I see it.
(Forgive the random photo of hubby making pancakes, it shows of my lovely kitchen and the lack of window treatment perfectly!)
And in February 2011, I made a pair of curtains to go across the patio doors. Well, made might be overstating it slightly. We'd bought a pair of 3m long curtains so I had plenty of material to work with. I bought header tape and some plastic snap-rings online to change them to eyelet-topped curtains. And I made a lovely wide hem, joining the linings at the top and the bottom, to avoid small people and small cats playing between them!!
And I love these curtains! It took most of a weekend, and an unintended victim of my labours was my HTC phone. But it was so worth it (and the premature arrival of my iPhone wasn't bad either!). All I have left to do now is turn the other pair of curtains into a Roman blind. I have the fixings, I just need the time, but I'm determined to have it done before I go back to work!
