I'm so glad you said that about curtains! I made curtains for our living room windows, and thought "ha, tab-top curtains, easy peasy." And then wrestled with yards and yards of fabric and insulated lining, etc. I thought it was just me, but I'm delighted to hear that other people have the same experience. I feel better about my abilities now :)


Oy, I also despise making curtains. I always buy them whenever possible. LOL


Well, at least you'll have a break tomorrow night. :)
Good luck my dear.


I don't mind making curtains once I've made that first cut. It's the first cut that scares the hell out of me and makes me put off starting the job! At least they are white so you don't have to worry about patterns matching and all that :O) Good luck with it all.


Good luck with that! I hate trying to get the hem straight. I do love white curtains though!


Seven? Curtain panels?????? Are you nuts? :-) Good luck with that. I hope you do at least show the final project.


i feel like that quite often. getting in the zone of making something and just getting it DONE!!! good luck.

Good luck with all your projects! Can't wait to see the results!


that white linen looks like a crisp wave on your ironing board. it will look so nice i know it because you are such a great sewer!
it sounds like with all those paint layers and techniques it will be a palace!


They will be beautiful! I have complete faith in your sewing abilities!


I've sewn only one set of curtains for my room. It was a gruelling process with nice results (:

I like your ironing board cover! It's so flower-y and nice!


I don't like making curtains either. I bought some material and lining to do so and then just went to ikea and bought some linen panels...ah...so much better for me!!! :) Cute ironing board cover!


i hear you! i've been "making" curtains and "finishing" painting in our home all summer long!


oh, I am so with you about the curtains. I've been putting off my dining room curtains for about 8 months now. Nothing like the thought of wrestling all that fabric to make a girl not want to sew.

Good luck & I'm sure they'll turn out great!!

Ah yes, I hate curtain sewing. All I've had to do is hem the bottom of 6, but they've been hung up unhemmed for 2 years now. The problem is that no one notices, so there's just no motivation to do them.

Good luck!
