WOYWW #171 - Curtains

Bit late today, family hit by a late Summer cold. Husband has just gone back to work after a couple of days off sick and son only managed a couple of days of the new term before he too is off sick. I am pending the same but as a SAHM you can't really get a day off, can you?

As for my desk, not much crafting has taken place except my SWAP/ABAC/Tim Holtz ATC entry which you can see on my previous post. Other than that my picture shows my new lace curtains. I bought a set from Ikea the other week just to make the half curtains for my room and the bathroom but they were SO long that I was able to make two long ones for my room as well. They edge the window nicely when the curtains are open, and I just love the scalloped edges, so pretty and romantic.

As I am not at badminton today as I am just not up to it, I really ought to try to get some scrapping done..........

Oh dear in my haste to get something done this morning I forgot to mention why on earth I am sharing my curtains/desk with you all and what WOYWW means. So pop along to Julia's place and all will be explained.

Hi BJ thanks for popping by. If I am not here next week then please send someone to look for me in my cupboard!! Love the curtains. They look fabulously floaty. Hope the bugs all leave your house soon! Happy WOYWW to you from Helen 5

I hope all is well in your house again, nothing worse than men being sick they are such babies. Lovely new curtains and yes the scalloped edges are beautiful.

Thanks for sharing and happy crafting.

Hope you can manage some extra rest -- it seems like the best medicine for colds, although it's frustrating to give up crafting time for extra sleep. The curtains are lovely! Wishing you good health and a good day. ~ Laura #124 (Thanks for visiting me.) :)

Sorry to hear that you've all been under the weather! You're right, Moms don't get "days off!" Lovely curtains you unexpectedly ended up with. I, too, love those scalloped edges.

Hope you all get well soon! Thanks for coming by to visit me earlier! Darnell #74

Oh you're right, that frame of lace is really pretty - very scandinavian! I expect not being up to Badminton means really that you need sofa time..the thing about being a SAHM is that any free time feels like it should be filled. Hope you're feeling a little better today.

The curtains look so pretty and delicate. I do like half curtains for a bit of privacy. My living room (my craft room) has one wall that is all window with long blinds that I usually crack open for the sun and for the cats. My neighbors comment that I'm always at my desk! Half curtains would be nice but I would have no idea how to go about them since the windoes are so huge and no wall on either side (just metal sidings). One of the neighbors has half curtains. I should invite myself over for a look see.

I adore the new lace cutains, so soft and feminine! Very pretty, and I think they suit you to a tee! Hope everyone feels better soon! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

Pretty curtains ... and I can see with all those sick people around it can be hard to remember what you started. Hope you get to Badminton next week.

Hi BJ, just catching up with my WOYWW comments - I must be the slowest WOYWWer on the planet - anyway, love your lace screens, very pretty and feminine. Hope everyone has recovered by now and no, if my memory serves me well, there is no time off for SAHMs. Hope your weekend is going well. Elizabeth x #11

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Could I possibly get any later? I'm really trying to play catch-up and am so sorry to read that your entire family has caught the wrong type of bug. My computer bug, although extremely frustrating and more than likely costly, is no match for a sick family and a sick SAHM. I hope by now, things are much better.

Those are some beautiful curtains you've added to your craft space. It looks like you have one incredibly gorgeous view from that window, too.

I didn't come from WOYWW, just catching up. However, I think I was #2 this week.
