Hello sweet friends! I just had to post to let you know what I'm up to. I've started moving into my new room at The Plum Tree.
I've made some new curtains for the window in my room. It's really big and consists of two smaller windows on either side with a large window in the center.
Guess what I used for the fabric?? A giant canvas drop cloth from Lowes!! It was the biggest size they sell. I had purchased it a few years ago and even laundered it to make the fabric soft. I had planned on using it as slipcover fabric for my furniture but just bought a new sofa instead.
Anyway, girls, I just measured it out to have two panels and a long valance and ripped it!! Then I folded over the top of each curtain and sewed a couple of rows to create a rod pocket and small ruffle at the top for each panel. Then when I hung them up, I hammered in nails at the corners of each window. I threaded black wire through the rod pockets and then wrapped the ends around the nails.
I allowed the wire to swag ever so slightly from nail to nail for each curtain. I cut one piece of wire for each of the windows. I'll be sure and take some photos tomorrow for you . . . I'm sure this sounds totally confusing!
I will also be working on plenty of new projects to add to my Etsy store. I just have to get my room squared away then I'm going to get busy on the handmades!
I'm nearing my 200th post and I MUST have a wonderful giveaway for you!
I may even come up with a few things because I just love it when there is more than one winner, don't you??
So stay tuned and I'll be cooking something up in the next few days.
I've enjoyed blogging so much and getting to know you wonderful women.
You cheer me on, you cheer each other on, you rally together, pray for one another, and compliment one another.
It's a sweet community that I'm so proud to be a part of!!
