Operation: Save our Collective Lives is well under way; the living room has been rearranged, Friend Sarah has offered to take me to IKEA next week for magic furniture. And today I replaced our living room curtains. I'm a teensiest bit sentimental about the old ones because they were the first thing I ever sewed, but:
I actually bought the fabric for the new curtains almost a year ago but I wasn't motivated enough to remake them until the room was revamped at the weekend. Et voila:
How come no one told me how hard it is to photograph curtains? The backlight from the windows is misleading enough to trick you into thinking Scotland has nice weather. Do not be fooled, it rained today and I wore my winter coat.
And I knocked up some five minute cushions too. I pondered whether to do a tutorial for the cushions but there are at least six million tutorials for cushions already in existance. But if anyone asks nicely I will anyway.
