~Sewing for the Kitchen~
Anyway for my Monday post I want to share the new kitchen curtains I made with you.
I still love the white lace curtains I had made, but I took them down to wash and thought maybe I'll make another set but in a print so I can change them from time to time.
So off to the fabric store I went and found this lovely linen rose patterned fabric and it was on sale...Yeah for me... so when it came to my turn at the cutting counter I said (six yards please).
I used some of the leftover red fabric I had from the king quilt for the trim and tie ups. I also lined the valance.
Gary had just hung the white blind for me. We didn't have a blind before just a lace curtain valance and everyone walking by could see me in my PJ's at night doing the dishes (not too pretty of a sight) Teehehe

Do any of you recognize "Henri the Roster" sitting on the table well Henri use to live at Penny's house
The Comforts of Home, but he came to live with me and Gary. Henri misses Penny and Mr. Comforts of Home, but told me he really likes here, he moves around a lot he's kinda of a table hopper LOL from the dinning room table to the kitchen table. We love Henri...my Dad got the biggest kick out of him when I told him his name "Henri" you see my Dad's name is "Henry"
A closer look at the plate tie backs.
I got so excited because it was of course red! I looked at my niece and said "I wonder how much" well guess what it was on sale half off!!! Yeah of me, I only hesitated for about maybe 5 minutes at the most and then said "I have to have it" and of course my niece agreed with me...LOL
My Sew Sweet Studio I won them a while back, Gary and I love the watermellon fabric Beverley used and I think it adds a touch of sweetness to the kitchen. Beverly is a very talented quilter.
I love the little ball feet, so cute....
There you have it new curtains and a buffet. You all know me by now and know that more changes are to come..like crown molding and bead-board...I can't wait.
I hope the week will be kind to you and that you'll always remember to count your blessings and forgot the days troubles.
