WOYWW 21.07


Hello, there's really nothing at all of any interest on my desk today, Im inbetween cards so Ive decided to show you what else is going on in my craft room!
Here is our 'little one' sound asleep on the bed (we've got a spare quilt cover on the bed to save the bed from white hairs!).  Usually she's snuggled up with her Mum Poppy but I think because it is so humid, she's going it alone!


Having already made a start and calling in on some friends joining in with the WOYWW I suddenly realised I could show my curtains that I made for our bedroom a few weeks ago.  Cant you just tell what a whizz I am with photography!!  Nice view of Southampton skies but rubbish at showing the curtains!


Its amazing how many shots I had to take to try to get one good view!  I gave up with trying to show both curtains, after all, they are both the same!  I made these with a lovely quite heavy fabric and used the Pinch Pleat tape for the first time (namely because I had forgotten what the name of the ordinary basic tape was!).  Im quite pleased with how they turned out especially as I had 3 lengths to make them so there's a seam in both; the matching was perfect so I am very relieved and they are lined also with black out linings (hubby works nights).

I hope youve enjoyed your trip today and if you'd like to join in then please pop over to Julia's blog, the link is on my sidebar!

Was that sun I saw in the background? I've almost forgotten what that looks like, here in the North West - rain, rain and more rain. Great curtains, too, lol - you can come do mine next if you like, he, he.

Beautiful curtains Keryn, I wish I could make them my lounge is desperate ! The ink I use for embossing is always Versamark and I also always use an anti-static bag (or talcum powder works just as well). The EP is Stampendous Stampin' Stuff, Detail White. Hope this helps ! Sue C x

Love the photo of the little one. Adorable and cute.

You would not believe how many shots I have to take just to get one photo I'm willing to put on my blog. You are not alone in trying to get that "perfect" shot. But those curtains are great. Happy WOYWW.

Great curtains - I love to sew but have never mustered up the confidence to make curtains yet - keep thinking I will mess them up and it will cost me a fortune!

brenda said...

I'm much the same with photographs Keryn. It never fails to amaze me how a square card never looks that way on my piccies.

Very nice curtains anyhow and will be looking at those Southampton skys tomrrow ready for take off Saturday.

hahah = don't you know if you make something truely beautiful the God of Soddedness will prevent you getting a half decent shot of it - they look fab but I bet they are even more impressive in real life...

Well done with those curtains Keryn, making them drives me mad, there's so much fabric and nowhere for it to go except round my neck and over my shoulder. I'm afraid I try to find somewhere with free making these days!
