A sewing day

I had today off from work so I spent it sewing. Yay! Well sort of. I finally finished the sheers for the guest room (sewing room #2). As I've expressed before, I'm not a fan of home dec sewing. I enjoy selecting the fabrics and deciding what to make but when it comes to actually sewing the stuff...bleh. I have been guilty of buying fabric with the intention of making the drapes, pillows...whatever and the fabric sits and sits and then I go to IKEA to buy the drapes - cheap, washable, and fun prints. Why do I take on the home dec then? Oh yeah, I like the design process and don't want to pay the high $$ to have someone else do the sewing. I even made it super easy for myself. The fabric is plaid, which can be a nightmare when sewing clothes but when making drapes all the lines are a real help to make sure everything is straight. Honestly these sheers were so simple that it's embarrassing that it's taken me so long to get them made. But they're finally done. On to the next project.

Oh, and Alison was correct. We are headed to Buenos Aires for our vacation!

  1. These are so much nicer than any ready-made drapes - it is worth the effort.
