A good part of my day yesterday was devoted to sewing, something that I wish I would do more of. All of our windows have blinds, but I really wanted to put up curtains to make our apartment feel more homey. I found all of our fabric on clearance at Jo-Ann's. For those of you who know me, I'm all about finding a good bargain. The fabric was only $3/yard!
For the kitchen I picked out a blue and green paisley print that also has bits of yellow to match the yellow on the walls. I opted for cafe curtains and then added tabs to the top. Here's the before and after:
The leaves are changing, time for snuggling up on the couch drinking warm apple cider, and pumpkins! Here he is; a cute little guy. He was supposed to have a little leaf on the top, but I thought that made him look like an apple. This pattern also came from lionbrandyarn.com.
I may have to take a little crocheting break. My husband keeps asking me about the curtains I said I'd make last month. Whoops! So many projects so little time, right?
Enjoy the lovely Fall weather!
I remember in college staring at the computer screen trying to figure out how to start writing a paper. Eventually you type, keep typing, reread what you wrote, delete half of it and keep going. Here I find myself in the same boat; how do I start my first post... maybe I'll show you my latest project.
I present- Owl. I found her on lionbrandyarn.com where anyone can register for free and get great patterns for knitting, crocheting and felting. She was my second attempt; number one didn't look so cute. These cute little stuffed animals are pretty easy to hook up (get it? crochet... you use a hook... hook up) Next in line- pumpkins.
