one of the things on my list for last weekend was make curtains for the kitchen and bathroom. well, i'm halfway there! the curtains are cut, pressed and overlocked. i would have finished them but my sewing machine is getting a much needed tune up right now. i can't wait to get them finished and up! the kitchen fabric, on the left, i randomly found last week at the Mill End Store. i love it so much it hurts. the bathroom fabric, on the right, is vintage. i got it at a fabric swap ten years ago. it has moved everywhere with me. i'm so glad it finally has a home!
that little bit of sewing led to some general tidying. we moved into this house last december and this room still isn't organized. when i find a spot that looks nice, i try to capture it, knowing that at some point it will all look nice.
a mini-salon wall in my studio. the top is a piece by kendra binney. my husband used to have an art gallery and she showed there a few times. amazing work. the bird on the left is by amy ruppel. she is so prolific! they are both local artists. the two pieces on the right i got at a street fair in prague. i don't know what they are, but i think they are cute.
hopefully someday i can post photos of nicely organized stacks of fabric... someday... right?
