from drab to fab
January is one of the hardest months of the year, I think. Once the magical glow of the Christmas tree is taken down and I have to actually turn on lights when I come out in the morning, life seems a bit drab and sad.
So, I put the time in and made our new living room curtains that are anything but sad. I bought 8 yards of fabric (from my sil's shop), which was the perfect amount for these curtains. I first carried around the 8 yards of fabric in a pile, smiling at how pretty it is and how wonderful the weight of 8 yards of nice fabric feels in a sewing girl's hands.
Cutting into the fabric was scary because I have been known to mis-cut fabric, but after the nail-biting inducing cuts, it was fun, fun, fun!
And, our living room is no longer a sad, post-Christmas space. yay!
