When I posted the pictures on Facebook, I looked at it and thought, hmmm, those curtains are looking tired. When I went to Maine and bought the blueberry fabric I could not have loved them more. What can I say, I am fickle!
Do you remember the apron I made my step-mom for Christmas? Those colors are in the tiles we are putting in the back splash so I went to the Quilt store to get more.
However, while I was there this vibrant Marcia Derse fabric caught my eye. I love her stuff and I keep collecting it but not sewing with it. Click here to learn more! Marcia Derse
I got four yards of it but found a fabric in my stash for the lining.
When I took it down, I smiled to see the plaid that I had used as the liner.
I don't know why I like a whimsical lining fabric in these curtains but I do. Maybe for hovering helicopters? Or the birds?
At any rate, this is at least the fourth set of curtains I have made since 1996, I guess about one every four years. It's time.
When I get them done, I will post a picture.
What's that you say, could I post a picture of the completed kitchen?
I thought you would never ask.
I can't wait for the kitchen and all the construction chaos to be over. I will be able to cook again. I know, I can't believe I wrote that either!
