Last night was a stay-up-late-talk-a-lot-while-you-sew kind of night! My sister-in-law, Brooke, came over. We both had projects...hers a little more intricate than mine. I was just sewing big squares for curtains. Fun times and much needed girl time for me. We laughed, I almost cried, we laughed, then I almost peed my pants.
Anyway...the square curtains. Square? No. Rectangle? Yes.
When I hung them up, I realized how awful I am at sewing straight lines.
*These curtains have been modified to fit correctly.* Works for me!
I added a line of gingham ribbon to the top for a bit of oomph. Yup...that'll do!
Thankfully, I have no plans on moving them up and down. They are strictly decorative. And no. I didn't measure. Correctly, that is. I know, I know....
Instead of ribbon to make the gatherings at the bottom, I used safety pins. No sewing, fast, easy...sure. Aaahhh...I love them next to my paint and new mantel.
Last night I lit an Autumn smelling candle and fell in love all over again with this house God blessed us with. Couple good company with really cool air outside and some pumpkin spice latte coffee...mmmm, cozy.
It helped that Brooke kept commenting on how cozy my house was. It's probably the best compliment you could give me about my house. Really. Don't tell me it's clean 'cause I'll know you're lyin'!
The only thing missing last night was the Christmas tree, the Christmas music...December....you know....
