New curtains for the den/sewing room/office! I haven't made new curtains in here since the 1990's, so it seemed time for an update to something lighter and more modern in look. This is the fabric - Joann's last week. The thread I just got today in the mail, and I am going to thread up the serger for the job later today. I am pretty excited about this. I don't do much home dec, but I do like to have a nice valance or curtain up now and then. The serger should make short work of the job as well. There were a lot of fabrics to choose from, but this is the only one I liked enough to spend the money on - that's for sure. It is an HGTV fabric, as I said in the last post, and I didn't even know they had a line. that's how not-home-deccy I am these days. I love the colors, and of course I see now that the combo of yellow, gray and white is quite common now, and I probably bought this just as the trend is ebbing! I am going to stop the blog now and get to work!
But the colors of the fabrics and the ease of the FMQ make this a happy project, and one which I love doing, I had a week of illness and didn't get it done, and I want to finish it this weekend.
Meanwhile, I want to make new curtains for my den/sewing area/office and I picked out a lovely fabric at Joann's on half price last week. It's an HGTV print in yellow, gray and white, with a stylized poppy design. Picture will come in blog post about said curtains. I had to order Maxi-Lock for my serger in the color I wanted to use with the home dec project, as oddly enough, I didn't have any nice yellow, or any yellow at all for that matter. I am using 2 yellows, 1 gray and one white for the project in the serger, and yellow for what needs to be done on the machine.
