New Curtains...

The hubs and I started a small project today ...which eventually became an all day affair. We painted the window sills in the dining room, and touched up the paint on the walls. I decided mid-afternoon that I would be able to 'whip-up' a new set of curtains, so I began the arduous task of cutting some fabric I had (which was going to be a second apron....) and after hand-stiching one seam, I decided I needed technology. So I called my Mother in law with the intention of borrowing her machine to zip a few seams....when after sitting down with her (a professional in the sewing world) my plans (which were very unplanned...ahem..) changed ... and so much for the better. The original idea is still there, but the sewing was done much more efficiently than if I had done it :) I am SO thankful she helped me ...they turned out wonderfully!!! I added a grapevine swag on top and a wooden heart hung by ribbon.


Here's a pic of the freshly painted sills, new blinds, and the curtains :
