Over the years I have made many articles of clothing for myself and my children and often think of that first sewing machine. When my children were young teenagers I gave up on sewing clothes since they was not the in thing to wear. I did a little mending on the machine and sewed a few things but slowly the machine was put aside.
Since I took up quilting a few years ago I have gotten braver and this past week I made new curtains for my kitchen. My window is 6 ft long and very narrow. Any curtains that I purchase have to be re-made so instead of buying curtains I purchased 4 metres of lace fabric that could be altered to make new curtains.

The fabric was 24 inches and I only
needed 18" so instead of cutting the eyelets off
where the curtain rod went through, I folded it back
6" and then folded it back up again, to make
I then sewed down both sides of this new
My new curtains.
I also made a few new placemats.
