Literally. I'm making curtains for two windows in our dining room and I know nothing about sewing short of which end of the needle makes your fingers bleed. We have had the fabric for ages. They need to get done and I'm too cheap to have someone else make them. So, it's curtains for me.
E's mother visited with us over Christmas and there was a burst of frantic activity to get the guest room ready. E made a very groovy headboard for the guest bed out of Black Walnut and upholstered with a cool pale blue silk velvet. I made the silk curtains (interlined and lined) for the two windows in the guest room.
Up to now I've never really felt that I had earned my Gay Card. I've made two pairs of curtains for the guest room, and hand sewn the french pleats in the shears for the dining room. I guess I've earned that card after all.
And after the dining room there is the master bedroom. Welcome 2006.
