It's curtains, I tell ya!
Much like my Fisher Price friend here, I've been spending more time at the sewing machine than with my knitting needles lately. It's almost too hot to knit nowadays. This weather is really only suitable for loafing, puttering and frittering. And good news! It's only supposed to get more miserable as the week goes on.
How hot is it? Well, perhaps this was the dumbest thing I did this week. I was on an assignment Saturday and sweat so badly that I got into my car, hid underneath a beach blanket and changed shirts. Then I hung my repugnant shirt on the car's air conditioning until it dried. Thing is, I was on the upper West Side. This kinda behavior could have gotten me arrested.
Anyway! I spent the week sewing festive new curtains. I picked up this loud fabric while I was at home -- it's for the bedroom and really makes the sage walls pop. They also match my grandmother's afghan.
I also bravely returned to Fabric Save-A-Thon and picked up more gingham. You can't beat the price -- just $2.99 a yard. This is for my little craft area, which is coming along slowly but surely.
I'm wondering now if curtains make for a boring post. But they're like the eyeshadow of a room!
