Not A House

My bathroom window faces south, and I need a small curtain for privacy. My old one was really faded, so I made a new one. This one fits into the window frame using a spring rod. The top of the window looked really crummy by comparison, so I added the valance.

As you all know, I have to make an apron for my Mom. I couldn't decide how to use the playing card fabric, so I decided to use the fabric with the peas. Here's the front.
Here's the "lining."
I just "winged" it. There is no pattern.

I still haven't decided how to use the fabric with the playing cards, but I do know I will modify my apron design somewhat. The "bib" will be shorter, and the pocket will be set a bit higher, and won't go across the whole bottom of the apron.

That's not all I did. I watched the tennis at Wimbledon, washed windows in three rooms, changed the sheets on my bed, and did the laundry.

Which means I can do whatever I want today. Like wonky houses!

I love the curtains. Do they go up it looks like they do. And how do you put them up. Great look

What a busy gal you were! You definitely deserve a day to do whatever you like :o) Those curtains are so wonderful. I like the fact that they're colorful and happy and that they're tailored rather than frilly. Great job!!!
