A Couple of Projects

So I am finally getting around to posting what Beloved and I made the other day. Here it is in all it's glory. LOL

It's nothing spectacular. Just a bench. The chairs with our dining room table aren't holding up well. So we built this bench and it sure is sturdy! It can easily hold Big T, Sweet E and Little E. The children love it. We need to tweak the next one we make, but hope to get one made this weekend or so.

Then I got tired of looking at this in my kitchen. The white curtains wouldn't aren't very white anymore. Plus it's sort of boring.

I was wanting more of a 1940s color theme. I already have bright yellow walls so I went with blue and red for the curtains. I love the result.

I would love to buy some more of this fabric. I found it at Marie-Madeline. It's from the American Retro line. Next up.....more sewing for Special K....I hope. I have the fabric washed I just need to get it cut out and sewed up. :-) Blessings to all!

I love those curtains! They look great with your wall color. Makes me smile. :) I hate making curtains, but you may have just motivated me!
